Gone Sailing

I came across this lovely DP in my stash recently, must have been a pack of too nice to use!  So it's on my table now and sure to be used up soon!

I've paired it with this oooolide form Lili of the Valley.  Coloured with watercolour pencils, clear gloss added to the hull of the boat, and sparkle to the sails.  My dirty mark this time is disguised with the Paper Smooches die in the corner ;)

This little guy could well have sailed his yacht in our garden earlier ... the rain couldn't have been any heavier!  And 5 minutes later the sun was out.  Mad 'summer' weather we're having!

  2. That paper is the perfect one to coordinate with your cute image. I love this card. It reminds me of my childhood. We lived near a sort of scummy pond (we called it a slough) when I was growing up, so we often tried to "sail" our homemade boats in its algae-ridden waters. LOL

  5. I love this card! From the image to the paper and the lovely "stich" line, it's all so sweet and fun. What are those white spots, doo-dads or stickles or what?

Hail stones the size of marbles and torrential rain. I was too scared to go out to the he car!! A strange summer indeed!! Lovely to see you at The Cutie Pies too xx
