Connie & Mary ~ By the Tide

Thank goodness Mark has solved the problem with my computer issues and I am back up and running without issue!

Here is the Twisted Easel card I am entering in the Connie & Mary Sketch Challenge. As most of you I am sure have a lack of "man" cards I do too and have started to try to make a few to add to my box of cards to have on hand. 

When the new mini came out I was totally in love with this new DSP and for me it sort of felt somewhat Nautical? Not necessarily the patterns but more the colours so I thought I would pair it up with a new set that arrived last week By the Tide! Being from the East Coast I knew I had to get this set :)
