Boat Showcase..........

Hey everybody, I hope this finds you all well. We are ina complete mess at the moment as we are having a brand new kitchen fitted starting Friday so I have been real busy clearing everything out and by heck I never realised I had so much stuff in there. There are boxes everywhere especially in the craft room, I have tried to put them in places so I can still get to most of my crafting stuff, but it`s not worked out boohoo.
So to cheer me up my darling Mick sent me these...........

24 gorgeous yellow roses. I am a lucky girl.
Right let`s get onto this weeks Showcase............
My Digi Boat
This week we have the very talented........
 Rachel as GDT.
Unfortunately we do not have a card from Tina this week as she was unable to get one finished as she was getting ready to go on a well deserved holiday. Have fun Tina.
And finally here is my card as always
For this I have used...
6 x 6 white scalloped card, the backing paper and shore image came from MCS then I placed my digi onto and then coloured with Promarkers, thin twine added then anchor embellie from Creative Charms.
It took me a while to manipulate the shore image to ensure my boat worked with it.
And THANK YOU Rachel for being my GDT this week
You have done me proud yet again. I love them all.
 I know I say it every week but I really hope you will pop over to the girls blogs, just click on the girls names and it will take you straight there.

Showcase 22.......

Well here we are back to reality, we had a fabulous week away in Menorca and the weather was wonderful not one day under 25 degrees :O)). I was a bit scared that we would put the weight back on while we were there as you just have to try the food lol, but we swam and walked everyday.... and yeah we managed to keep the same weight. Just a couple of photo`s for you as I don`t want you to get bored before you see the wonderful cards that the girls have made this week. The top one is the view from the garden and the second was the most amazing sunset I had ever seen, such a shame the villa was in the way.

Right now onto the cards.
This week we have again the very talented...........
And of course my card
5 x 5 square white card. Free paper from Jak Heath (thank you).Printed Poinsettia 5 times so I could decoupage and coloured with Promarkers. My new Spellbinders Nestabilities used with my new Grand Caliber ;O)).
I know I say it every week but the girls have done a WONDERFUL job of creating such beautiful cards and I hope you will take a few minutes to visit their blogs and leave a comment.
Glenda, Lindsay, Janet and Tina.
