S for Ships for CCC!

Hello to you all once again, and I hope you are well.  There are a few Blogging Friends whose hubbies are not so well just now, so sending out positive thoughts for their speedy recovery.

Thank s everyone for you visit and comments on my last card, you are all very kind and encouraging.

Just a short post which I'm scheduling for tomorrow's CCC  challenge theme chosen by Hazel, something beginning with S;
As you can see my S is Ships, inspired by the Christmas carol "I saw three ships come sailing in on Christmas Day in the morning"
It's a wonderful stamp from LC, coloured with Prisma Pencils and DI
Seniment part of the set.
MB Die
LOTV paper
Silver Mirri Card
Papermania Gems and Star Dust

Hope you like it, that's me for now.

Hi Kate
Great idea to use this Carol as your inspiration it's lovely to see a card that's a bit different,love the layout and colouring. The Die is really effective I can almost feel the waves pounding on the shore. Love the new photo, hope you had a great day on the West Coast yesterday. Thanks for your best wishes for hubby's recovery.
