Does anyone wanna come and do my housework PLEASE????????  Hehe, so hope you have all had a good week, enjoyed the sunshine and got something good planned for the weekend.  Once I have had a good tidy up I should have a little time,  I got myself a couple of little treats yesterday from Oyster stamps so dying to get in my cupboard and have a play!!!

Be sure to check out the challenge post HERE for full details of the prize, there is a fab £10 spend up in Crafty Emma's Store up for grabs and also you don't want to miss the DT samples!!!

So here is my little card, I nabbed most of the colour combo for the image from the LOTV colouring masterclass I went on last year.  I love these MME papers that have the wood grain/fence effect, I am seeing them being used a lot and I thought it would be great to use one for this image!

Stamp -  Sailing Boat - LOTV
Colouring medium - Copics
Sentiment - Personal Impressions
Papers - MME On the bright side One
Brazil basics card stock
Dies - Whimsy Pennants, Marianne Creatables Fence
Mixed buttons, bakers Twine
