Hello there! It has been over 2 months since I last posted on my card blog. For those of you who were unaware we have been travelling (yes again!) and this time we substituted our push bikes for a supply ship (50m long and 10m wide!) to Pitcairn Island. For those of you interested you can read and see lots of photos of our epic journey on my travel blog - 4 Pedals & 4 Paws.
You are probably wondering why did we go there? ... well it is a very remote island about half way between NZ and South America. It is only around 2.5km long and 1.5km wide and is very hilly and also its' claim to fame is it iss the place where the mutineers of the Bounty (Mutiny on the Bounty) made their home. And my mother was born there and hasn't been back for over 52 years! So it was a family effort to get her back there one last time. After spending 2 weeks on the boat (it was a slow boat!) in the middle of the ocean miles away from any land (sometimes the closest land to us was 1000 nautical miles away) and also in some very deep ocean (5km deep ... eeek!) we finally made it and I have to admit when I first saw the island I did well up with tears and when I saw my Mum step foot on the island ... well the tears just flowed!
So we are back and I am in the craft room catching up! My card was made using the wonderful set from Annabelle Stamps - Cherry blossom and I followed this months sketch
