Sail away

Happy Easter everyone. Here I am back with my second post this morning and a quick post it will be as Hubby is decorating and needs to unplug the internet, eeeek!
I hope you will check out my card below. This one is using a very cute image from Pollycraft. As you know I love making boy's cards and this one was no exception. He has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers, Sakura clearstar pen for detail. I've used a Forever Friends embossing folder with Core'dinations which I then sanded. Papers are some Christmas Papermania ones edged with DI Faded Jeans. I used my MS cherish punch, added some ribbon and a little charm from The Works tied with baker's twine. Sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.

Marianne, you have totally outdone yourself with these two cards. You have used so many different techniques. I love the little things you do...the sailboats embossed, the little sailboat charm! Gorgeous, just gorgeous.
Hope your internet is not shut down for too long!!!!!
