Shabby/Vintage challenge

There are still a few days left to enter the fun challenges at Papercraft Star ... 
The 4th challenge has been set by the lovely Anitra and she is asking that we
"get our party on ... shabby / vintage style"

My sweet blog friend is celebrating her wedding anniversary today ... and I found out too late to have a card done and sent ... so this was the opportunity to make a card and enter Anitra's challenge ...


two sparkly hearts cut from burlap


Die cut "notes" using images from THATB


The backing paper is also from THATB

Ok, so I know that the card will be late ... but better late than never right?

Got to dash ... Thursday club tonight and I have missed my group so much ...

Have a lovely day / evening

Hugs

Casablanca



Day 6 we sailed into Casablanca ... this was to be our longest stay ... a full 14 hours here for those who wanted to take a trip to Rabat (4hr drive each way) ... 
This was the most disappointing stop for three reasons ... firstly this is the port 


Not so pretty huh?
Disappointment number 2... 
We had decided against a 9 hour trip and decided to take the shuttle bus that was supposed to drop us at a hotel ... Having visited Tunisia years ago ... I was apprehensive ... I had a few 'not nice' experiences in Tunisia ...
But we headed for the bus and as soon as we disembarked we were hassled ... We were driven a short distance ... maybe 10 minutes away (not to the hotel due to road works) and told we could walk from here ... Well it was awful ... traffic going everywhere, noisy and dirty and within seconds the bus was surrounded with people trying to take you to their taxis for tours ... I admit I felt scared ... My husband is completely deaf in one ear and doesn't hear much with the other so I worry for him  ... The ships' trip organisers gave us no information or assistance as this was all new to them too ... so I decided not to get off the bus and just head back to the ship ...
And the biggest disappointment was finding out that had we got off the bus ... turned the corner we would have been in the Famous Rick's Cafe!



How gorgeous is this place? They even keep an empty chair especially for Rick

And a sweet guy we met on the ship would have accompanied us as he had visited many times and knew everywhere to go ...

C'est La Vie!

Gibraltar next stop ...
