We get Bottle Nose Dolphins - you can read about it here! I know I have taken photo's before of dolphins in the bay - however, I cannot locate them at the moment - so here is a photo of the bay itself and the view from the front deck looking Eastwood
Looking west - how's that for a rainbow!
You now have seen two of the moods created by the weather.
The river runs at right-angles to us on the west side.
Why am I telling you all this? Because Gingerloft's newest challenge is called It's a Small World and is a challenge all about create a card or whatever to represent where you come from.
This is my card:
The background colours are green and gold for Australia - the green spotted paper was just in my stash, and I don't know who it belongs too, but the yellow card is SU's new colour Summer Starfruit, and the die cut is a Spellbinder's one. The yellow is meant to be the sun! The other two die cuts - Memory Box's swirl (meant to show splash) and the frame from SU's Apothacary Accents. This frame has been sponged with Momento Summer Sky ink, with a bit of SU Pacific Point on the bottom for the water. I have also used some Stickles on this to give the waves a sparkle.
The sentiment is from an SU stamp set called Happy Day. The dolphins themselves are Gingerlofts digital image and it is called Two Dolphins. I have printed this out twice and then fussy cut one set out. I covered it with glue and sprinkled it with the new black glitter from SU that is out for Halloween - it gives a beautiful black shimmer! I attached this over the top of the other dolpins with dimensional tabs. The whole is on a white commercial card blank
