Fairymoon Crafts Sketch 30

Well our weekend away wasn't as good as it could have been. Rain and wind. Every time we ventured out it rained. So we all came to agreement on Sunday evening to come home. which in some ways was good as we missed all the traffic on the Monday. We enjoyed the little break we had so that was the main thing. And good part was we managed to enjoy the lovely sunshine we had at home on the Monday.
Anyway my card for today is for the Fairymoon sketch challenge. One challenge that I haven't done in a while due to holidays.
Papers are by Karen Foster Design Pirate collage & Pirate Tapestry
Captain Edwin coloured with copics(this is the first time I have used this stamp)
Black buttons from my stash.

All the above products can be purchased from Fairymoon crafts shop for details click here
WE would love to see your creations from the sketch, so why not hop over to the Fairymoon blog to find out about it.

Thank you for stopping by, Hope everyone has a fab day
