 Hello everyone,

Well, that time has gone fast last thing I remember it was Monday..that's what happens when I schedule posts, the time slips away...I have been busy making my tomato sauce and doing another batch tomorrow, and I made a chocolate cake..all domesticated all of a sudden..

Back to cards...and, another nautical..

These papers are in my stash and they are just right for nautical and masculine..

So I cut panels of navy cardstock and the papers slightly smaller and layered them all up..

Then found this triangle, so it got matted up as well.
The ship wheel was die cut, 3 times and glued together and

then inked up..

I used a marker on white card and cut these little dots using my hand held punch.
to add to the wheel for details..

The rest is all ephemera...

Except for the seagulls, they were die cut too..

Nearly there...

A close up of the bottom...

and the top...PC generated sentiment..

and there she is...

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
