Hunkydory Nautical Card

Hi Crafters,
Phew I'm glad this past week is done and dusted, I have been so busy making cards and gifts I think I can do them in my sleep. My craft fair went very well at the school where they were fundraising for the Macmillan Cancer Charity and a tidy sum was raised thanks to everyone who attended.
I am also very excited to be able to announce that I will be having a monthly stall at the Thorpe Farmers Market which is held on the last Friday of every month at the Church Hall on Thunder Lane, Norwich.  I will be there on the 31st of October selling my handmade cards and gifts and then every month thereafter. So it's going to be a busy time ahead!.
Anyhow, back to today's card, which was one I made for my stall last week and it sold very quickly.
Recipe
Hunkydory - It's A Man's World Collection
Twine
Bronze Sail Boat Charm
 
This is the first time I had used Hunkydory cardstock and now I know why everyone raves about it, it's luscious. I won this male themed card kit in a competition. It had plenty of background card and toppers to make lots of cards and I will be showing some of the other cards I made with it another time.
