Michael Powell Beach Huts

Good morning to all my friends and  followers an d a special welcome today to my latest follower Eve. I hope you are enjoying the weekend  and  have some nice things planned. Still two days left for those of you who work.
Today I'm sharing another of my sample cards for Craft Group. Those who follow regularly will know I go to a Craft Group on a Thursday and  every so often I make a sample for everyone to make.
We have mixed ability so this time I used a pre-coloured topper from a Docrafts pad of Michael Powell Designs . I've have used this design before as I  have the stamp  but this topper is lovely and  I do enjoy making these nautical themed cards.

Card Recipe

6x6 Blank card
Topper is Docrafts pre coloured topper from a pad of Michael Powell images I think its quite old.
Papers are Docrafts Ahoy There !! pad
Blue card is from Ross Papercraft
Circle and Stitched circle dies
Red Bakers twine from The Range. I got the knotted idea from something I saw a while ago on Pinterest.
Boat button is from Whitby Crafts
Candi from Craftwork Cards
Hessian trim is from Hobby Lobby in Florida
Studs are made with  Honey Doo Crafts Pearly Pearls silver 
Sentiment stamp is from a Marianne nautical stamp set and stamped with Memento Paris Blue ink
I cut the outer circles twice once in blue and then backed it with a Kraft card circle to give it more strength .

Well we are going out later to meet my cousin and his wife who live in Washington and we are all going out for lunch it will be great to catch up with them. Then its jobs in the garden tomorrow. Our Son and  Daughter in Law had planned to visit with Miles however they have finally got a date to move into their new house so they have cancelled as lots of things to organise in the next couple of weeks.We  are delighted for them that they finally have a date as they have been staying with Fiona's Dad since they sold their house a couple of months ago.  

Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend. Love and  hugs Carole x
