Ahoy Matey!

Ahoy there, my friends! We're half way through the week and I've had enough. No, seriously. I want my weekend and I want it now! ...Oh well, looks like I'll have to work my way to the weekend...the good ol' fashioned way. Tantrums never did me any good, anyway.

We've got a nautical themed party to look forward to on Saturday. It's a birthday of a 14 year old diver from a family of divers. When not diving they're surfing, even in this weather when it's freezing cold. I don't understand. All I want to do is hug my hot-water bottle ... not a surf-board.

For my card, I've taken the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #180ColourQ #171 "Daffodil Delight, Night of Navy, Basic Gray, Kraft + White"; Celebrate the Occasion #94 "Boy's Birthday (Must Use Blue) and Divas by Design "Anything Goes".

And here it is:

I'm using up some scrap strips that literally fell out of Crate Paper's "Toy Box" 6x6 pad. For the background I Swiss Dotted some navy SC.

The image is from WaltzingMouse's "Half Pint Heroes", stamped in Memento Black and coloured with SN markers in gray tones. After fussy cutting the image I popped it up on some die-cut CS. I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals on navy and white CS.

 For embellishments, I used some blue and white twine and a button. 

Here's the inside... little fishies.

That's all for today, folks! I'm off to bed, it's been a long, hard day! Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget my GIVEAWAY. You still have a few more days to join in the fun. See ya soon!
