Sailing home

Good evening. I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. We had a great time last night, lovely meal out and then saw Foorloose, which was fantastic. We've been out visiting all day and am out again tomorrow so apologies for not visiting your blogs for a couple of days. Will catch up with you all as soon as I can. It's great to see the entries coming in for the Winter Wonderland bloghop. If you haven't played along yet then I hope you will, as there are 22 prizes up for grabs this week.

Now onto my card, which is a bit of a change for me. When I won 5 digis last week from delicious Doodles, this was one I chose as I thought it would make a great men's card. I left the image black and white as I like the sketchy style of it. I used some scraps of papers and a star punch. I just love bunting and when I saw the fab sketch at Willow Sketchie knew this was the perfect sketch to use.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
Birthday Sundaes Male Birthday card
Scrapbook Sisters Row, row, row your boat
Simon Says Stars and stripes
Do it with Digis All about the boys
Charisma Boy oh boy
