Sailing Away

Hi to you all and a special hello to my followers. Sorry I haven't been around to visit you the last few days but I just seem to be chasing around and getting nowhere fast. I really don't know where the time is going and I reckon someone keeps pinching the days and hiding them from me !!

It seems like yesterday that the new Joanna Sheen challenge started and I started digging out all my cds and with a day to spare I've actually got this card made. This image is from the Faye Whittaker Collection cd and I think the little boy is just so adorable - maybe wondering if his boat would disappear if he put it in the sea or how long he will have to wait until he can be a sailor.
The paper is from Pebbles Inc and I used a hammered effect base card. From my stash I added some card candi, a silver peel-off sentiment and the banner is a Memory Box die. Then I made a little boat to finish it off.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Joanna Sheen challenge 'Boys Will Be Boys'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'Something Old, Something New' (old cd, new die)
Simon Says Wednesday challenge 'Triangles' (banner and boat sails)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything Goes'
Cute Card Thursday challenge 'Anything Goes' (my 2nd entry)
Creative Card Crew challenge 'Banner /Pennant'
The Squirrel and the Fox challenge 'Nautical / Sea Life'
The CD Sunday challenge 'Transportation'

Well that's it from me tonight - I'm off now to put my feet up and watch a movie. I'll be back tomorrow with my DT card for the new PCJ challenge.
