V is for 'Vegemite'

Over at Just Add Ink the current challenge is to
create a project with the letter V
Details are Here
Now you may ask where my V is?
When I read the post the first thing that stood out was
VEGEMITE! What's this you say?
It is a yeast extract that us Aussie's love to put on toast.
My favourite is to add avocado with it - yum!
Now I know a lot of people can't stand the strong taste
but I spread it lightly not like my hubby who
smothers his toast with it.

The next thing that came to mind was the word
VACATION so I got out one of my favourite
SU sets called Feeling Sentimental and the
phone booth reminds me of the red British ones
so what better stamp to use when you are
over the other side of the world
on VACATION without your VEGEMITE?
The colours I used are part of the theme -
you see Vegemite comes in a jar or tube is
brown in colour and yellow is on the jar so I used
SU Yo Yo Yellow & Close to Cocoa.
Other products used are -
Background are stencils from
Tim Holtz - Speckles
Clear Scraps - Chevrons
Sentiment - Gina K Designs Country Roads
I picked this to go with the strip behind the
yellow cotton - I need my VEGEMITE
typed up on my laptop.
Did some distressing to match the stamped image
and finished with a tiny button tied with some
more yellow cotton.
Sorry this is a long posting but needed to
explain a little about our Vegemite.
My card certainly isn't what most people would be thinking
with the chosen letter - but I sure had fun with it.
Thanks for dropping in.

Oh wow! Ina this is truly wonderful! So creative and so fun to use vegemite as your theme! I adore the little repeating words behind your yellow ribbon and how you've picked your colours too! Thanks for sharing in the fun with us at Just Add Ink this week :-)

I have always wanted to know what Vegemite is.....wonder if I would like it. it sounds a little pungent. Thanks for the explanation - I know I will never know the taste. What a great take on the challenge, it's perfect, as is your card!!

Don't think I've ever seen a card inspired by Vegemite before!! Such a great idea and the colours you used certainly remind me of the jar. Love the phone box image too, reminds me of Dr Who!! So glad you joined us at Just Add Ink this week!
