Ahoy There Shipmates!!!

Oh! my fab hubby took me to Rudyard Lake yesterday & wow it was beautiful!!
Had a fab few hours walking around....thanks hunnie xx

Well todays card for Craft Your Passion, I just love & I'm gonna keep it lol....
Firstly the challenge this week is to use
TWO DESIGN PAPERS
we have a fab sponsor again this week
Being on the DT we all got to choose an image to play with...well it took me ages to decide!! I eventually decided on 'Ahoy' which is a fab little set for making those awkward male cards!!



I just love the pirate bear he is fab!!



As you can see I have only used one DP for the card itself, I used my second as the cross for where my bear found his treasure!!
