It is nice to have some time to myself to craft again.
This card is for the Australian Day challenge. Its a bit late.
I created a water coloured background and die cut the bush shack four times and then pieced the different colours for the walls, roof and lights. I hunted high and low for my Australian gum tree stamp which has some how gone into hiding - but had to make do with these trees which look like eucalyptus trees.
Hope you enjoy.

That red earth is great! And the textured Bazzill for the shack. Sorry you couldn't find your gum tree stamp, but the tree you did find looks pretty good. They reminded me of the time when we had a tree surgeon out to check a few trees in our garden, when I was a child. He hadn't been round the garden, but on coming to the front door and going by visual impressions as he approached the house, he said "Those eucalyptus trees will have to go, they are too close to the house". My mother was a bit taken aback and said we only had one eucalyptus tree....So he revised his opinion and said in that case it must be so well rooted that it was fine. And indeed I can still see it from the train when I travel out that direction, standing firm, tall and luxuriant. Thanks for your two lovely Australian cards in the challenge gallery.

LOL I thought they were gum trees. I love your Aussie shack and the Bazzil cardstock, it looks great. You have a wonderful collection of stamps and dies Helen, I'm so glad you were able to join in Sabrina's fun Australia Day challenge.
Please don't take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here.
