N for Nautical

Good Morning,

Well here we are another beautiful day hope this keeps up for the weekend as we are having a family party for Abbie, on Wednesday, her birthday, we went to the beach at Lytham, she asked us for a metal detector for her present so off we went metal detecting, unfortunately we didn't find any treasure, but we had a lovely day the sun shone all day and we had a good time on the beach.

On to today's challenge at Alphabet Challenge which this week is N for Nautical:

For my card I have once again used a print of one of my husband's paintings as most of his paintings are Nautical, this one is called Suffolk Coast.

Papers : First Edition, free magazine paper
Tim Holtz : Embossing Folder, sanded image, metal embellishment and tissue tape
Die : Quickutz photo corner
