Nautical Theme on MAWTT.

This week on MAWTT its Our Lovely Australian Leesa who is the Hostess. She has chosen the very Apt theme of Nautical since she is the Navy Wife. 
This picture was taken on Saturday morning while I collected sand for the card. Believe it or not the snow was blowing through!!! Mad May weather!!!!
We are sponsored by Sir Stampalot this week. 

Thanks the the Folks over there for the brilliant prize they have given us. 

I got sand everywhere doing this card but it was great fun and looks really sweet with her real sand.

This is gorgeous Hazel - I love her eyes! The image is just perfect I love it and the papers too - you've excelled yourself Mrs! - Know what you mean about sand - gets everywhere I keep crunching it in my teeth after I've been on the beech with the dog - some may say I should just keep my mouth shut!! hugs Judith xx
