Ship Ahoy

Morning All.
Well it's a lovely sunny morning here in Essex, and just for a change in my life I'm waiting in for a plumber again - why oh why did I ever think it was a good idea to change the bathroom in our house lol.
Anyhow, on a better note, it is time for the start of a new challenge over at Here Come The Boys - and this time we would like to see your male orientated 'Vintage' creations (gosh, this one was so out my comfort zone, but hey it was quite fun once I started). We have a brilliant Sponsors prize this time from the 'Digi Doodle Shop' who are giving a $10 Gift certificate to our DT Winner.
I have used a set of stamps from Kanban for my creation,coloured with ProMarkers, distressed with good old Tim Holtz inks and added some good old garden twine for rope to add to the dimension. I hope you like the results.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges;
Allsorts - free and easy February
Bloggers - by the seashore
Hotshot Crafts - one for the boys
Crafts and Me - distressed
Pennys Paper Crafty - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - masculine
Thanks for looking, and have a great day.
Hugs Sharon x
