A Unusual Event....A Card for a Boy!!!

Hi, I hope you are all having a great week! I cannot believe we are nearing the end of January...where did the weeks go to!
Once again we have a bug getting past around from kid to kid and not missing out me...they must be attracted to this house! 

Anyway today is the new I ♥ Promarkers challenge
The theme is ....One for the Boys!!

The Sponsor for this challenge is Visable Image! 

As you will know a masculine card around my blog is very rare but, wait for it, i actually enjoyed making this one!! This image is "Sailing"  from the Simpler Times Collection from Katy Sue Designs...illustrated by the amazing Elisabeth Bell!!
