Adjust Your Sails!

When you hear the song "Sail Away" by Randy Newman, Enya, or Chris De Burgh, what do you think of?  Are you sailing into a new school year?  A new marriage?  A new stage of your life?  Another great day?  Although I have never been sailing, there is something about seeing a sailboat riding the waves that is quite inspiring.

Well then, it's time for a happy image from SK Digis.  Today's image became an instant favorite. Stop by and say hello to Sonia and tell her Kren sent you.   I am entering it into the SK Digis  monthly linky party.  I just love the sketch and have included it below so you can give it a try.  The sentiment inside says:
 We cannot direct the wind, 
but we can adjust our sails.  
So adjust your sails today and sail into whatever you are facing and enjoy the salt spray in your face and the wind billowing in the sails.

Supplies:  Colorbok Hopscotch paper pad, Bic Mark It markers, Copic blender marker, metallic chalks, Spellbinders dies, SU! embossing folder.

I will try to enter this card in the challenges:

My favorite, 'tis the set of the sails and not the gales that determine the way we go. You image represents the sentiment.
We love to see your artwork; thank you for posting with us at Word Art Wednesday. Remember you can post up to FIVE projects this week.
