Forest Gump.

When she first started at Secondary School my eldest daughter became great friends with Genevieve,Geni for short. I can just see them sat on the sofa in their awful stripey blue school blouses,giggling,sharing jokes and watching films, my daughter quoting Forest from
Forest Gump,her favourite all time film,
"I named a boat after you Jenny"

Well little Geni turned 18 this week so I obviously needed to make a card for Gemma to give her and this is what I came up with.
I stamped two images,a girl from Suzy 2 set by Marij Rahder and the boat from the Suzy 5 set, both available from "Scrapbook Sisters" I masked off Antonio and the sailor on the image and once I'd coloured the images I slotted them together so that her arms are dangling over the edge of the boat. I used permanent markers to colour peel offs to add the name to the boat.
I'm using this card for
Mojo Monday Sketch challenge 140 and
The Shabby Tea Room week 11 ,Polka Dot Tea Party.
Thanks for stopping by on this rainy Saturday,
happy crafting,

What a sweet story and what an adorable card. I know she's going to love this. Super clever how you've combined the two stamps. Thanks for playing along with us at TSTR.

The more I see you use these stamps the more I fall in love with them. I think I need to add a few more to my stash. Lovely card Julie. She'll be really please with it.
