Message in a bottle

"Less is More"
The Less is More ladies have thrown up a 'Kraft & Kreme' challenge, so here's mine.  I had such fun making the bottle from Shrinky Dink!  The starfish are die cuts and the shells stamps.  As I already had my sewing machine out on the table (making PJ's for grandson) I thought I'd add a touch of texture with stitches.  The seagulls are hand cut, and there's even a cork in the bottle and Microbead grains of sand scattered about.
Thanks LIM ladies for this fun challenge.

I also made this card yesterday for the wonderful nurses in the hospital ward where DH has spent so much time over the past year.  I took them a tin of zuccini and raisen muffins, although the tin wasn't as full as it had been earlier in the day before we left home!  He went back for a check-up yesterday but has been told to stay in bed another week as his wound has not healed yet!  He is NOT a happy camper!
