Are you a follower Inspired by Stamping Facebook page? Get latest information, archived cards and a little what’s happening with me. I had such a blast yesterday with the family! The photo of Brad and I was a hoot! We had to take that one at least 6 times and was just cracking up laughing! I have a few shares at the bottom of my post of our day yesterday. I hope you enjoy!

I used a 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 size white card base to begin my card. I then stamped the “postcard” sentiment from Vintage Postcard stamp set.

2 Cherry Blossom flowers, 2 White Rose Buds, a Pink Rose buds and some leaves created this lovely bouquet of flowers. I then took a strip of Crochet Fabric Tape and adhered the flowers to the card. A cute pink button just created that little extra something.

This lovely sentiment comes from the Cherish stamp set. I then rounded the corners and distressed the edges with brown ink.

Yesterday was Father’s Day here in Australia. We headed to the beach and had a picnic lunch with the kids. It was beautiful weather and a fun family day hanging out with the most important people in my life.

I was taking photos and my goof ball family stuck their heads out at me while taking this photo. So funny! Smile

The Great Barrier Reef with lots of coral, fish and oysters! We saw a reef shark and a huge crab that I was too chicken to get a photo of.

While driving home, two kangaroos jumped out in front of us. One had a joey inside her pouch and ran away. The other one stopped and kept grazing and eating grass. I was able to get this photo of it before it hopped away.

The first kangaroo before she hopped away.

    Hi Joanna:
    Thank you for sharing your beautiful cards with us each day.
    Since you live in Australia, do you see any emus? At one time we had 30 but are down to five. We live in Idaho. They lay their eggs here in the winter time which is bad because if you don’t gather at night they will freeze and crack. Their eggs are such a beautiful color. People are amazed when I show them one.

    Thanks Peg! It sure has been in adventure so far. Being from Michigan, bugs are just so small. Everything in Australia is big, I mean huge! I have enjoyed sharing my journey with you all and feel so grateful to have your support. Thank you! Joanna
