All The Nice Girls Like A Sailor!

Good morning I can't believe its nearly June - where on earth is the year going?  Thank you so much for all your kind comments I am feeling loads better.  I have not been able to see Rowan as I didn't want to pass anything on to him so missing him like crazy!  My daughter is now driving so she is going to bring him over for the day tomorrow.

Over at Digital Delights its time for another Delightful Thursday where the DT showcase some of Wendy's amazing images.  Here is my contribution:


I have used Sailor Simon Set which is available here, in the set you get Simon, the anchor. a boat and a ship's wheel.  The sentiment is from the Blast Off Accesories Set which is available here.  I coloured Simon with my Copics and added some Glossy Accents to his nose.  The papers are Nitwits called Aye Aye Captain.  I used my Spellbinders Grand Nesties Scalloped Rectangles for the card shape and Grand Rectangles for the matting.  Spellbinders Ribbon Banners for the sentiment and some ribbon for the twine around my anchor.  Here is another view:


Head over to the Digital Delights Blog to see some more inspiration from the talented DT.  Also today there is a new challenge starting at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is Its a Guy Thing. If you enter you are in with a chance of winning a $15-$20 surprise package from Magnolia-licious.
