Ahoy Me Hearty's

Hello lovely bloggers its a really really quick post from me as I should be at work!! I had a horrible day yesterday so I headed to my craft room to calm myself down last night and came up with this little card to share with you today.
I've been wanting to enter the TOMIC challenge since it started but never found the time to fit in the right card. I'd printed out this image to use as it's long been a favourite and when my new paper from Maja turned up this week as did my navy silk ribbon this card virtually made it's self!
My lovely teamie Debs taught me how to cut with nesties outside the frame as I'd been wanting to have ago and Edwins feet were the perfect opportunity!

I hope your having a lovely weekend wherever you are
Thank you for looking

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie

Aww this is gorgeous Laurie! Edwin is SO sweet and love how he is outside of the frame. Really love those papers! Saw some Maja on another site and made a note! But I have used up my spends for Autumn LOL. They look gorgeous anyway and so fab with the little ships wheel and nautical theme. The Ahoy letters and bow are just perfect!

Hope you have a better day today babes!!

Thanks for your lovely comment! :-))
Sorry you had such a bad day yesterday. Hope all is ok with you!!!
and hope your car isn't too badly damaged and you can claim on insurance!!! It's so costly now for car parts. My daughter's boyfriend just had to have a new horn put in his car and it cost £200!!!! my mum said he should have bought one of those rubber ones that you squeeze rofl ..... like Mr Toad eh? sounds good to me.
Take care and try and have rest!!!
