Sail away....

Hi everyone,

I'm happy it's Friday...how about you?
The week has gone by so fast...is it because we're all caught up in the World Cup?
 I love the excitement it generates...and yes I'm in fear of loosing my voice again.

We might find some time to attend Ribfest this weekend. 
Sunshine, best rib contest and cold beer for the boys
...ahhh summer....doesn't get much better.

Okay..on with my card. I ordered a few LOTV art pads recently.
 Taking the advise of a few of my craft buddies I touched up the image with a little colour.
Perhaps I'll try coloured pencils next time.
I followed the Sketch provided by Digi Sketch Challenge

The paper is Whimsy Stamps - By the Sea collection
 and the sailboat die is also from Whimsy Stamps. 
The clouds were cut from felt using a MFT die.
  Sentiment created in Word.
I tried sewing the white felt but since it kept sliding around I only completed one side.
I do have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine.

The inside is finished as well.
