Sail Away

Good Morning 
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend.

I just hope the weather improves as I seriously need some sunshine in my life.

Quick post today as with it being Friday, I am off to mums to do her cleaning.

She is having a new sink and unit fitted in the bathroom today and I have to
be there to oversee the plumber as mum being mum will hide herself away
in the lounge as she has never been very good at dealing with things like
this, so hey ho it all down to me.

Hope you enjoy my little make


1. Started with a 5 x 7 cream card.

2. The backing paper is from the cd Times Gone By 
from Crafters Companion and I have distressed it
before adhering to the card.

3. Using an oval die I cut the frame from cream card
and stamped. Next I ran my distress ink lightly over
it to age it.
4. The images are again from the same Cd and these
were also distressed before adhering.

5. The anchor is cut from a Robert Adams die and
I used brown card then I rubbed Pebeo Renaissance
Gilding wax over it.

To complete I wrapped a gold twine around and
threaded it through the anchor.

Thanks for calling 
Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
