Nautical Birthday for JAI496…!

Hello All!

It has been several days…but, I am making my way back here!

I seem to have fallen out of step with all I do and it has taken a bit,

to get back, to where I am supposed to be at this time!

Hope all of you are safe and healthy, so far…we’re good.

Keep those hands washed!


Today’s Card is for an Inspirational Photo Challenge!

Our Challenger is

Just Add Ink #496  (JAI496)
