Three Great Lakes in three days!

We just got back a couple of days ago from a mini vacation.  We dipped our feet in Lake Huron, Lake Superior, and Lake Michigan, and all in three days!  OK, that might not be the best way to see the sights, but it was all of the time that we had.  I would have loved to see Copper Harbor again, but just couldn’t swing the extra 5 hours each way.  Anyway, here are a couple of quick pics of the Mackinac Bridge for you.

I finally finished this card today.  Another comedy of errors.  Why is it that when one thing goes wrong, everything after that departs from the plan too?  Let me just say that it started with a questionable bobbin and went from there.  I used a Hero Arts butterfly stamp/die set and free handed the stem.
