gonna puke!

You are looking at the title of this blog posting and thinking what kinda card have I made!  I know it is a shocker but I have actually made this card to send to my parents (and I am thinking of making another 2 to send to 2 of my sisters!).
In 5 weeks time my parents, 2 of my sisters and Neil are all departing for a place called Pitcairn Island - it is a tiny remote island in the middle of the South Pacific.  We are taking a supply ship from Tauranga (NZ) to the island and it is going to take anywhere from 10 - 14 days on a boat that is only 10m wide and 50m long!
We have been planning this for a while and one of our concerns is sea sickness.  We know that our mother gets sea sick (as she did on a big cruise ship) we think one of my sisters will get sick and we are almost sure that I will suffer as there has been a few ferry crossings where I have turned green!  So we are stocking up on sea sickness tablets ... hence this card :)
LOL isn't is funny ... I know my family will find this hilarious as we ALL have a warped sense of humour!
I have made this for the SPARKS Paper Smooches ocean challenge, followed Retro Sketches #70 and also Papertake Weekly - anything goes.
materials used - Kaisercraft buttercup, tomato cardstock, Canson smooth white cardstock; Echo Park 'a perfect summer' papers; Paper Smooches 'he said she said', 'alphadot' stamps; Versa Color black ink; Spellbinders classic ovals small dies.
