The Open Sea....

Well we have been on holiday for 2 weeks holiday and Mr Blogger behaved himself by posting my scheduled posts. I am sorry for that I wasn't able to visit everyones blog while away....
After doing all the washing and ironing and some of the dreaded housework I finally got into my craft room and had some time to have a quick play with some new Stampin Up goodies.
This is a set call The Open Sea.
Stamped in brown and black Momento, I used two different size round circles to get the porthole look...found a chest and a ships wheel in my bits box.


I think everyones fed up with this awful weather and although we have had floods in our village it hasn't affected us thankfully...but at least you don't feel quilty crafting..lOl...lOl.


Thanks for stopping by and I do appreciate all your lovely comments and enjoy visiting your blogs too.


Anne
