Good morning all.

Still battling away with our New Zealand itinerary, I think we're 3/4 of the way there...gosh it's hard going! We want to fit as much as possible in but don't want to spend the whole time on the road living out of a suitcase.

Sharing today the card I made for October's Card Chain Challenge which was sent to Jerrie in Wisconsin.

Dies from Wplus9, Spellbinders and Memory Box. Back ground made using the Alcohol Marker Marbling technique. Pearls and sequins from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
ABC Challenge - u for unlimited
613 Avenue Create - anything goes
Amusing - sequins
Glitter n Sparkle - anything goes
