We are Sailing

We've had a bit of a heat wave this past week, and it was perfect timing as the Tall Ships were in town!   You'll not believe me from this photo looking at that sky, but we didn't have a drop of rain and the sun shone :)
They headed off today to Portrush, ready to start their race to Norway tomorrow.  Not sure I'd fancy crossing the North Sea in one of these though!

So in celebration of our Tall Ships visitors I've gone for a nautical themed card today.
My image is an oldie from Lili of the Valley.  Coloured with watercolour pencils and a few highlights added from my Wink of Stella pen.  Blue BP embossed with an old Ellison folder.  Star dies from Taylored Expressions (which I also 'winked'!)

Oh how wonderful to be able to see the Tall Ships, they are magnificent. I am jealous because I live well inland, practically in the centre of England, so I never get to see them BooHoo.
Very sweet little image and so appropriate, a lovely card :o)

I'd so love to see those tall ships. They must have been an amazing site. Love your card. I find I'm "winking" something on nearly every card now, too.
