Thinking of Newfoundland.....



This gorgeous image from the Prairie Fairy reminds me of my family back in Newfoundland. My Dad's family is from Newfoundland, Canada on the East Coast. I was there when I was 19 and loved it so much. The kindest people on earth are there! I have a little souvenir lobster trap which is exactly like this one. This image completely reminds me of my trip! The large shell was handpicked by me on the West Coast of Canada in British Columbia when my kids and I were there visiting my Aunt and Uncle. Paper is CTMH, Sentiment is Whimsy Stamps, coloured with prisma pencils.
I am entering my card here....Ooh La La Creations - nothing floral, Charisma Cardz - autumn colors, Create4fun - use a digital stamp, Crazy 4 Challenges - birthday.
