In the Harbour



Good Morning to you all, my wonderful friends and blogging buddies
I hope you are all well and for those who are not too good I do hope that you are feeling better really soon.

Regular visitors to my blog will know how much I love making cute or floral cards. Well, I thought it was about time I made another grown up ' masculine' card. 
I do struggle with these cards so to help me a bit I decided to use a fabulous sketch from Seize the Birthday Challenge. The only problem is that I could not fit the sentiment at the side of my image as per the sketch so I realise that my entry may not count. Never mind though as the sketch really did help me with my design.



Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Delicious Doodles In the Harbour coloured with Promarkers
Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass for sky and Antique Linen for sand
Papers - Bo Bunny Welcome Home
Sentiment - Craftwork cards
Shaped card - Craftwork cards
Twine and charm from stash

I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Seize the Birthday -  #10 Masculine Birthday ( I have moved the sentiment, feel free to delete if necessary!)
Sentimental Sunday - Anything Goes
Creative Creations - The letter B (boats, blue, birthday)
Stamping Sensations - The Great Outdoors (second entry)
Creative Card Crew- Masculine
Crafty Ribbons - One for the boys

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog today. I really do appreciate your support and encouragement.
By for now
Hugs 


Sue

That's a really super image for masculine cards Sue and a perfect colour choice.

Keep reading about the Google changes, but there are so many mixed opinions as to if/how it will affect us all so sitting tight for now.

My dear friend, I bet I'm not the first to assure you that any struggle you feel while making these types of cards is NEVER apparent in the end result. :o) It is seamlessly gorgeous. The image is spectacular and I love the papers you paired with it. Sheer brilliance, my friend. The sweet anchor is such a charming touch. (Ha! I didn't even mean to be punny.) This is fantastic. Always be confident in your creations because they *always* turn out marvelous. :o) Beautifully done, Sue! :o)

Hugs and blessings!
