Moving Along With The Times Nautical Challenge

Good morning all. What can I say ever since we have been living in this holiday home we have had awful weather for it, I bet the day we move out it will be brilliant sunshine lol.  It looks like our day for moving could now be 21st May but still waiting for confirmation.

This week at Moving Along With The Times Leesa set us the challenge of 'Nautical' and I didn't have to think about this one for long. I used this old stamp from Crafty Sentiments that I haven't used in ages but had to make the card twice!. My godchildren called in to see us just as I had finished making three cards for up coming design team challenges when the youngest who is 4 put his sealed drinking beaker on the table next to them. Beings as it was sealed I thought they were safe, however he had dropped it on the walk from the car to our chalet and it must of pierced the edge, a little while later a pool of orange juice had appeared and all three cards were mopping it up.


Supplies:-
6" Card Blank - Boyes
Card stock - Bazzill
Designer Papers - Dovercraft 'Back to Basics 3'
Image - Crafty Sentiments 'Little Sailor'
Medium - Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Dies - Spellbinders Nestabilities & Edgeabilites

Promarkers & Flexmarkers Used:-
Hair - Cinnamon & Tan
Skin - Apricot, Blush & Ivory
Sailor Suit - Cornflower Blue, Bluebell, Blue Pearl & China Blue
Eyes - Surf Blue
Tongue - Baby Pink
Boat - Forest Green, Chartreuse, Lime Green & Aniseed

Challenges I would like to enter it into:-

Aww this is really sweet Kim! what a gorgeous image and you've coloured him beautifully! Love the papers and layout! Aww sorry that you had to redo it because of the orange juice - there is nothing more disheartening than having to start all over again. I was like that last weekend. Everything just kept going wrong. I dropped a pen and it streaked right across an image that I'd been colouring for about an hour!!! Very annoying!
I really hope your moving goes ok on the 21st and you can finally get settled!
Take Care
Big Hugs
