I'm back!

Hello everyone! I'm a day late with my There's magic in the air design team card, sorry. Between visitors, football and getting the boys ready to go back to school (they're back tomorrow), I'm running a bit behind.
Ok, so on to my card. This weeks challenge brought to us by Marie was to create a card using any Paper Cupcakes image and NO pattern paper. So this is what I came up with

I used the "beached boat" image and the Script cuttlebug embossing folder and my hubby made the knot embellishment for me. Cards for men have a challenge at the moment for "long summer days" so I'm also using the card for that challenge.

I want to say a big thank you to Fleur and Lea for the lovely blog awards! Thank you girls! You are both so sweet! I'll be back later on today or tomorrow to pass them on :)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
