Sailing by!

Hi Everyone, a VERY cold, very windy, sunny day here today. Perfect washing day, I love seeing clothes drying and blown about in the wind, am I sad or no? LOL.

My card today is for another Great nephew, he loves sailing so that's my theme for him this year. Search brought up these papers in my files, so glad it did, isn't the yellow a different colour to usual for sailing cards, however it's from a Pirate kit, so perhaps not so unusual!

Sailing Boat by TiffanyDoodles
Anchor DP's by Melo Vrijhof at Pixelscrapper
Sailing boat DP D Rutter at Pixel & Co
Sea DP under boat Designs by Brigit Digital Scrapbooking Studio
Happy Birthday embossing border by Tattered Lace
Tonic Rectangle and Circle dies 
Anchors cut on my Cricut.

Just thought I'd show you a photo of the results of the heavy rain we had last week. 
At least the daffodils were out for St David's Day.

TOP TIP - design your card in your digital program of choice, which means you only print what you use, not any extra, saving ink.

Sweet card Faith, love all the marine style papers you used and your sailboat is a great focal image! I can't believe you have flowers!! You might faint if I showed you what it looks like here, my world has only one colour right now...white! Ugh! big hugs :)

Love your card for your Great nephew and love the pic you shared of your flowers. I love anything to do with water and I used to love sailing when I was younger and had more free time. But I'll sit in my beach chair any time and watch the sailboats...haha Thank you for sharing and joining us in our Challenge #3 Ants in the Pantry at Doodle Pantry.

PS...I meant to add that I laughed at your remark about fresh laundry outside blowing in the wind and how cold it was. If we did that here, the laundry would be stiff as a board...haha PPS Thank you for your sweet comment on my post and for following my blog. I'm more on the silly side with cards. I need to make beautiful cards ever so often...haha Like your awesome card the other day with the victorian lady and all the beautiful eye candy elements.

I love your masculine card. Would you let me showcase your card and share a link to your blog post in what I call Manly Monday? It's a post on my blog where I share masculine cards (of all ages) as inspiration for my readers. If you are interested, please email me a direct link to your card so I can find it at grohcm at gmail dot com and I will add you to the lineup for the following Monday. I hope to hear from you.
