Hi Everyone, I here most of you had snow today, we have been very lucky and have beautiful sunshine, although the sun has just gone behind the mountain, it's still bright and not too cold either.

Struck down with cystitis today, haven't had it for years UGH!, luckily the bathroom is opposite my craft (spare bedroom) room.  You not here to listen to my woes so let's get down to one of those birthday cards I told you about.  It's for another great nephew, he mad about sailing so hope this will please him.

I followed this weeks Simon Says Stamps sketch and I used a great digi kit Hatteras by Wild Blueberry Ink.  I won't go into all the details of how I put the papers etc together, I think maybe I bore you with all that stuff, so I will tell you about what I did with the card rather than all the Photoshop stuff, hope you agree?  I printed and layered the papers and all the elements which are from the same kit, including the PS brush sentiment.  I also added a PS brush to the plain background paper before printing. The tag is 3D'd.
