Bathroom Wallpaper!

Wow, I can't believe it's 10 days since I last posted a card! The time has just flown by, I have spent most of it in bed tho lol! Dr decided to change my pain meds last week & I felt so blurgh that I just spent 5 days either in bed or on the sofa watching rubbish with Nige! Starting to feel better now tho, thankfully. Just hope he doesn't decide to do anything else to my meds when I go back!

Anyhoos, I have managed to make a card (really missed my crafting, needed to get back) & I really love it lol....I went to the Range with my mom a few weeks ago & I was just having a nosey around the wallpapers, as you do. I spotted this gorgeous bathroom one, with dolphins, fishes & oh it was just gorgeous. I said to mom about it & the fact that I can't have it because our bathroom is floor to ceiling tiled booooo! Mom had the genius idea of taking a sample (didn't know you could do that!!) well as soon as I got home I knew what I was going  to do with it.....this weeks sketch over at 
Try Stampin' on Tuesday has what I kinda thought to be portholes...you will get what I mean when you see my card......

Just loved making this card...think I'm gonna give it 
my mom as it was her idea behind the reason I made it!
