Loving that boat!

Good morning everyone, can't believe it's Saturday again already! It's been quite hectic since last Saturday. Even with a day off on Monday I've not achieved very much! I've never taken a day off work on my birthday before but I think I'll do it again! Then on Thursday I had Messy Church so that took up most of my day and of course I was shattered at night! On the bright side though that's the last one till September. I do enjoy it but it can be a bit of a strain trying to think up something the kids will enjoy doing. And more importantly something they can do easily as some of them are quite young.

Anyway it's time for another challenge at Totally Gorjuss. This week the theme is "Water, water." We'd like to see some water on your card or project. I wasn't sure I had an image that fitted the theme then I remembered this little cutie. Not sure about the water. It looks a bit weird because my favourite pale blue Promarker is running out.

I used :-
Image and DP :- LOTV.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Sentiment :- Stampin' Up! cut out with a punch also from SU.
Bakers' Twine :- Ribbon Girl.
Ribbon and buttons from stash.

Challenges :-

Seize the Birthday :-sketch

LOTV monthly challenge :- Boy oh Boy.

I've got a crop this afternoon after work so I'll try to catch up tonight.

Thanks for looking and if you've got time to leave me a comment I'd love to hear what you think.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
