Sailing Boat


Gee what gorgeous weather we have had for the last couple of days, which sure makes a change. We are going up to Yorkshire this weekend (as we were unable to go at Easter - due to the snow drifts), we are hoping to take H to 'Eureka' in Halifax and we are meeting up with friends at some point too.

Sorry 'Tilly' it's another boy's card today :-).  The papers i've had about 6 months, so instead of stroking them, i thought it was about time i used them and they are : Maja Design 'Life By The Sea'.  Sentiment - Basic Grey,  Anchor Die is an old 'Sizzlits Die', I've distressed the edges and mesh with Distressed Ink 'Faded Jeans', the buttons, mesh and twine are from my stash.
