Shiver Me Timbers!

Hi everyone,Saturday is just about over and I've just finished my card.
I went out this morning with a friend to a craft shop which is about 30 minutes away. We arrived and got out of the car and then realised it was closed. The owners are Seventh Day Adventists and don't open on the Saturday but do on Sundays. To compensate for the lack of craft shopping, LOL, we went and had a coffee and then popped into Spotlight so we could buy some more foam dots. I also bought a couple of candles which were half price so I could put some stamped images on them later. My friend dropped me back home and I got myself organised to go to another friend's house for our Saturday get together. We craft together, beading, cardmaking, helping Judy with crafts to sell for charity some weeks. Today we did two totally different things, I showed the girls how to make a Secret Box, we got about half way through that and we also used serviettes to make a picture on an artist's canvas. Quite easy, you paint the canvas let it dry and then adhere the serviette with modge podge and coat the whole thing. They all turned out really well.
I came home again and our youngest daughter had come to have tea with us. We just bought a take away cooked chook and a few chips and made some salad to go with it. We watched a DVD and she showed us a couple of her text books she now has for her nursing course. She starts next week and then will be very busy with classes and work as well.
Well here is the card.
I used a blue card from stock for the basecard and then a piece of SU Wild Wasabi. Both the DP's are from My Mind's Eye. The image was from Dustin Pike (I think)
The sentiment on the front I made up and printed using the computer. The one on the inside was either one I bought or a freebie, really not sure and I don't think I wrote where it was from either. I also decorated the inside of the card using the Wild Wasabi and one of the papers.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
