A Big Birthday Wish

Good afternoon. What a damp dull miserable day - but that's only weather wise lol!!! For me it means some time to spend in my little crafty haven and here is my share for today.

This card will be for Jack to give Ethan (my nephew's son) who will be 1 year old next week (he was born exactly 2 weeks after Oliver was born)
 I took my initial inspiration from the 'transport' theme at Lil's Little Fairies challenge this week and used the fab sketch at Sketch Saturday.

Image - LOTV 'Sailing Boat' coloured with FM's and the sails have been paper-pieced 

Design Papers - We R Memory Keepers 'Travel Light' - freebie from a craft magazine
Sentiment - Hobby Art 'CS026D Clear Sentiments'
Martha Stewart Zig Zag Border Punch

Other challenges I took inspiration from
CES - Paper Piece It
Everybody Art - Card for Men
Crafty Boots - No Girls Allowed
Make My Monday - Men/Boys Sports/Hobbies
OLLCB - Bold & Bright
Totally Stampalicious - Paper Piecing
Here Come the Boys - Card for Tiddly Peeps
OSAAT - Bright
Pan Pastel UK - One for the Boys
Our Creative Corner - Boys and their Toys

Thank you for your visit today - please let me know you have been so I can come and visit you too :o)

Don't forget my candy is still available - see details on sidebar.

Enjoy the rest of the day.
I'm off to tackle some ironing now :o(
