Gone sailing

Yippeeee that's me off work now for 2 whole weeks  :)   :)  :)
May and the start of June is always a mad hectic time at work, so I'm ready to slow down for a while.  I haven't had much time for crafting, so I'm hoping to get some squeezed in while I'm off and join in with the Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge.  The weather has been absolutely glorious here this past few weeks, so fingers crossed the sun will hang about for another wee while.

This one's a nice simple card, the sentiment does look a bit wonky in real life, but I don't think it looks just as bad as it does here!  I might die cut another panel and stick it over the top as it's annoying me now that I've seen it.
My stamp is an oldie LOTV, coloured with watercolour pencils.

  • Simply Create Too #139 - for a male
  • Crafty Cardmakers #213 - for a man/boy
  • Word Art Wednesday #338/339 - anything goes
  • CASual Fridays #201 - boys of summer
  • As you like it - favourite card shape - I don't have any fancy dies suitable for card bases but I love simple square shaped cards anyway - easy to post and easy to fit a sketch in to!  I'd quite happily make ALL my cards square, but they use a lot more A4 card stock than an ordinary A5 version.


  1. I hope you enjoy every minute of your time off from work. And I hope the weather cooperates, too! Your card is as cute as can be. I didn't even notice any issue with the sentiment until you pointed it out, so maybe it's not worth putting a new panel over it.

  2. A super cute card Lynne and the "arty" positioning of the sentiment adds to the charm I think!! I am hoping that the weather will hold as I am on annual leave this week too and the weeds are needing some attention!! xx

  10. Such a fun card...Love the image. We are truly blessed that you joined our Challenge earlier this month at Word Art Wednesday. There's still time to join our current Challenge and we'd love to see back. Leaving you with the inspiration of God's Word found in Isaiah 43:10 which says, “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Have a great day!
