You Float My Boat!

Good day and holy cow - where have I been??

We are back from Florida and finally getting settled/unpacked/hairbrushed etc. so I am back to card making yay!

…..and…..I had no glue. at all.  So I took a flying trip to Scrapping Great Deals where I bought some glue and maybe a few other things…..hehe - P.S. there was a 20% off indoor sale also……

Anyway - back to the craft at hand!  The Challenge has a masculine theme this week and here is the Inspiration Photo

A nautical theme it is - and I don't even like boats or boating or fishing or stuff remotely connected, but look at me go!

I used one of the many water-colour panels that I have from Simon Says Stamp - Suzy's Watercolor Love Notes and I water coloured it up with my Zig Real Brush Markers.

I trimmed it out and backed it onto some different patterned papers and I even googled how to make a Reef knot!

Thanks for coming around and checking out my blog! Head on over to The Challenge and check out this fabulous masculine theme.


  1. I think this is so so cute! I really struggle with more whimsical images but you have done a fantastic job with this!
