Its been almost a month since my last post although it feels like a lot longer than that. The summer is flying by but thankfully we got to slow down for two weeks when we went to visit Luis's family in the Azores. It was the most chilled holiday we've had in a VERY long time. We did lots of eating and hanging out with his family and I burned through 7 books which was wonderful especially as most of them were fantastic and highly recommendable! Now we're back home and I must say I'm feeling a lot more calm and relaxed about life than I did before I left.
As for crafting its taken me a bit of time to get back into the swing of it after such a long break but I feel like I'm finally hitting my stride. Today's card was inspired by two challenges - CAS Colours and Sketches and The Library Challenge (thanks for pointing this one out to me, Michele!). I'd never heard of this Jules Verne book before and don't know the story so I took my inspiration from the cover. It seemed to lend itself perfectly to the sketch at CASC&S and I knew those Papertrey Ink stripes would be just the ticket for creating my sky.
