Ship Ahoy!!

Morning Folks!!
What are you planning today?? I'm hoping for a nice warm and cosy day at home with a nice dinner tonight and a bit of crafting this afternoon!! Perfect Sunday!!

The new challenge at Here Come the Boys starts today and this time the theme is


Now I have to say, this was a bit tricky as I have quite wide musical taste and would find it impossible to ever pick a favourite song cos there are so many I love!! After a bit of head scratching I went for ...

SAILING by Rod Stewart

which gave me the perfect excuse to use this stamp!!! I know a little bit of a cheat!!

The image is of course from LOTV and coloured with promarkers. 

The digi papers are from Summertime Designs - The Freedom kit. I must say I'm getting to be a fan of digi papers, I especially like being able to just print another copy if I make a mistake or change my mind about a layout!! The sentiment is a Letraset rub on and the card is finished with card candi and this cute ships wheel charm from Ewe2can craft.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can join us at Here Come the Boys!!
