A Reminder for Lexi

Hi everyone. I hope you're all keeping yourselves busy crafting. I've been away for a few days so I'm just trying to catch up on your posts.

Sorry if I upset anyone with my post last week but I just needed to share my thoughts with someone. I only really see my hubby and son to chat to so it's great to have my blog friends to talk to as well.

Today's card is the card I made for Lexi's Birthday to remind her off her time in Australia with the fantastic beaches. Another go at a different kind of card for me. Hope you like it.

The outside.....

The lower layer of grass is a 'belly band' that keeps the card closed. This slides off for opening.

The inside.....

And a close up of the sparkly flip flops...
