Here's a quick card I made with a freebie stamp given away by Creativity magazine, here in the UK. I used some papers from the DCWV All Dressed Up stack. I stamped the bags separately, coloured them, and popped them on with a foam pad. The sentiment circle is from Craftwork Cards

Time to draw a veil over the sorry saga of the cruise. It was a repositioning cruise - the ship was sailing from the Caribbean where poor souls had been island hopping on it during the winter months, to the Mediterranean for the summer. What they didn't tell us was that the entertainment crew would be leaving the ship in Brazil, so for ten long lonely days we crossed an ocean with no shows or entertainment of any kind. As we got close to Tenerife, the weather changed and the sea got rough and choppy. Not many people went to dinner that night as the ship tossed and rolled. At 2.30 a.m the abandon ship siren sounded.
I leapt out of bed, people were screaming, a few were rushing down the corridor fumbling with their lifejackets, one woman was being sick in between screams. So after spending a minute or two deciding what to wear (people who know me well were not at all surprised to hear this....), we grabbed our lifejackets and made our way to our lifeboat station. We were halfway there when the tannoy pinged 'Oh dear' said the captain 'sorry about that folks, false alarm, please make your way back to your cabins'
We still had a week of this torture to get through, and spent all our time ashore in Tenerife searching desperately for a flight to get us home. We didn't manage it, and endured the rest of the time on board - by this time we had met some like-minded people and we all ganged up together to form a sort of protest group, so we spent many happy hours debating quite ridiculous ways that we could get our own back on the crew.......
Ah, home sweet home
