The (Ugly) Travelling Card

Here's the Ugly Card! See, I told you it wasn't Ugly, didn't I. Rita sent this to me last month and it's been hiding in my craft room (poor thing's probably never seen such a mess!) The idea take a picture of the Travelling Card somewhere near where you live. Rita chose some rather posh looking mansions, so I chose...well, normally it's a really nice, unique house near the sea, where two of my favourite dogs live, but at the moment its a bit, messy as it's being completely renovated!
So first I took a picture of it by my pond at home.. It's sitting on the 'Mind-your-own-business.' Then, Ugly Card came with me to work and I took a picture of it on the new sea wall. Then there's Ugly card on the fence, (Misty Isle of Wight views in the background, but lovely texture to that oak fence! Click the pic to make it bigger) Ugly card on the cement mixer (spot the guy in the shorts!) and Ugly card, being sniffed by one of the dogs!
Tomorrow, I might take it up to the Forest and get a New Forest pony or two in the back ground! Or, better still, I'll take it to hubby's 'works do' tomorrow night. Hmmm, maybe not!
Diane Forest of Little D Creations in Canada, started this all off at the end of March 2009 and thought it would be fun to see how far this card would travel, so she named it the Ugly card, Rita named it the Travelling Ugly Card.
Tracy in Canada was the first person to receive it from Diane, who sent it on to Jen in Hawaii who then sent it on to Rita in Massachusetts and Rita sent it to me!
We already have a few takers! So that's brilliant. I'll also make a few Ugly cards too, so anyone who wants to join in just yell...or email or leave a message...and we'll see what happens!!
This one will go off to Sylvia, of Poppy's Papercraft Patch (yes Sylvia that's you!) who was the first one to say, 'count me in Lyn'...and my first card will go off to Susan's Crafty Chaos as soon as I can make my own version of the ugly card...but I am thinking 'Ugly' here...A cute Troll maybe!?! Any ideas welcome! Anyone can join in! (I'll just make more cards!)
just time to say 'Hi' to new follower, Nicola over in sunny Spain! (Lucky devil!!) We've 'met' on the forums! Pop over to Nicola's Creations there are some fabulous challenge cards to see!
Right, that's me done for tonight, BIG mess to clear up in the living room and in the hall...I can't help it.. I've been making a card for Penny's Challenge. (birds) and some Inchies for Inch by Inch (leaf) and...well...I spread!
No wonder John's been in the shed all evening!! Actually, he's being very productive, he's downloading (or is that uploading?) all my Harry Potter Stories on to my phone. How cool is that!
Thanks for stopping by!
