Ship Ahoy

A beautiful day again today, my hubby and I went off to our eldest granddaughter's school to see her run in the events at Sport's Day. We saw both of our other grandchildren and our DIL too. My tooth is still aching and still dosing on tablets, I did get about 6 hours of sleep and it wasn't too bad first thing this morning so I didn't bother ringing the dentist again. Will have to wait and see what it is like by Monday and ring then if it still hasn't settled down enough. After we got back home, we both ended up returning to our beds for a nap. Adrian still gets tired but was glad to get out for a while and really pleased he got some pictures of Amelia at school.
Well, I am ready for sleep again so will hurry and finish this post off.
I've made a male card again today.
The basecard is SU Tempting Turquoise cardstock followed by two different DP's both from stash. The images I used are all from SU set The Open Sea. I stamped the sailing ship onto the white card once I had stamped a background stamp and then the map of the world and the ship last. I then stamped it onto some scrap white and cut it out and adhered it over the first image. I gave it a bit of colour with my Copic Markers. The anchor was done in the same fashion although it has an extra layer. The sentiment is called Tall Birthday and is from Stamp-It. I saw an image framed like this in a magazine and really liked it so have given it a go. I also did the inside of the card to match.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Make It Monday #82 - Anything Goes
Cards for Men - Challenge 7 - The Great Outdoors
Squiggles and Giggles Sqiggle Saturday - Birthday Bash!!

    Hope you are starting to feel better now, a tooth ache can really make things unbearable.

    Fabulous masculine card! I love the way you have the image in the circle, looks brilliant.
