We are Sailing....

 Hi Everyone,  
WOW the weeks are flying past. Its September tomorrow. I love Autumn with its amazing colours!! Cant wait to get the camera out and take a few pics!!!

This latest card seems to have taken me ages to complete. I started it last Tuesday so thats almost a week. What with this and that Ive just not done it. I have made myself rest today though as I have quite sore ankles. Thinking its dodgy old trainers not supporting my toosies right. 
This card is for Grandad Dave. We always like to give him a card to do with the sea as he was a Sailor!! Ivce made it a rocking Stepper Card. Boy did that cause a few sweary words in my wee head!!! Eventually after 3 attempts I think it looks ok!!! There seems to be a few templates online so have a look and see what you like (and understand) if you want to make one too.

Loving it Hazel, and I think Grandad Dave will too. Great idea making it a rocker card and giving the idea of motion on the high sea! Hope the ankles settle my love, maybe try little boots for better support? Jx
