Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes!

My poor blog has been very neglected for half a year!  
It has been a very busy time, our 25th wedding anniversary with a couple of fabulous trips, the blessing of our daughter's marriage along with family and friend celebrations in the UK and our youngest kids (twins) 18th birthdays and High School Graduations!  Phew!  
I am finally finding a little time to draw a breath!  
I whipped this up quickly (as I am still not back on track yet)
with one of the latest digi images from Crissy Armstrong at Whimsy Stamps.
This one is  Make a Splash Duck available at Whimsy Stamps now!  
I coloured the duck with Prismacolor pencils and made the sentiments myself.  The anchor is an old Whimsy die as is the nautical paper.
