Sail Away

Good Evening My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

How are we all this evening? I have been playing catch up with my housework
as I have not been feeling to good for the last few days.  Think I just needed to 
chill out and recharge my batteries.

I did manage to finish all my chores  by early afternoon and even went into my 
craft room and managed to produce six card, all of which will appear each
day as I am going to be busy until at least Sunday night, not only looking
after mum's household chores and shopping but also will be helping hubby
to put up the outside Christmas Decorations. 
That should be fun !!

Anyway here is the first card and I have opted to do a male card ( as with most
of you I do not like doing these but hey ho they have to be done)

Hope you like?

1. Card size is my favourite 8 x 8 and I have matted the front
using paper from  Tim Holt's idea-ology .

2. The ship was die cut using Joanna Sheen's Signature Dies
and then I inked the hull using Tim Holts distressed ink Walnut Stain.
I adhered it to the card using foam pads for extra depth.

3. I then die cut two anchors using Robert Adam's die and placed on
the card using foam pads.

4. The shells, chest and coins are all from my stash.  The sentiment
has been inked again using Walnut Stain Distressed ink.

5. To complete I have added gold cord .

And that as they say, is it!

Thanks for calling and leaving  comments, I love reading
them and do appreciate  each and everyone of you for
taking the time to visit my little part of blogland.

Until Next Time
As Always, Take Care and Happy Crafting.
