Join the Nautical theme at Moving Along with the Times

Good Morning blog friends

Hope you're all having a good day.  

Today is new challenge day at Moving Along With The Times and we have a great theme for this week

Our hostess with the mostest for this week is Leesa AKA The Navy Wife
and she's chosen the great theme 


Here is my DT card for the week and my inspiration for this challenge

I had a bit of a manic day yesterday and had a real rush to get this card made.  It was supposed to be my "me" day and I had all sorts of crafting planned -ended up with no crafting done - sometimes life just gets in the way of crafting - how can that happen? lol.  I had originally planned a very grown up card but right at the last minute I won some stamps at the Made especially for You challenge this week from Di's digital downloads and had chosen this stamp as one of them.  I was just busy printing off the other digi I had planned to use when up popped the email from Di with my stamps attached so I had a last minute change of plan,  this one is altogether more fun than my original card -  and I needed the shot of fun yesterday!!   I loved colouring this in it's so cute and I added the few nautical embellies that I had from  the other digi kit I, had which is from Can you digi it just to finish it off.  Di even sent me that great blue digi paper that I used as an extra to my prize - isn't it just the perfect paper for this stamp, and saved me having to go looking for any matching papers  - thank you Di!

This is what I did...

Digi stamp - Nautical bear from Di's digital downloads
Nautical embellies - from can you digi it - sail away with me 
Coloured with - copics and prismacolor pencils
Paper - Di's digital downloads
Red card, Ribbon and twine  - from my stash
Set sail - cut on cricut expression - gypsy wanderings cart
Anchor and water glossed with - glossy accents

Hope to see you over at MAWTT this week with all your nautical inspired projects, the DT girls have made a huge variety on the theme - hop on over and see them
