Set Sail-Challenges



Ooh, a long weekend for some..hope you're enjoying it. Hubby and I worked in the yard this morning and a little in the afternoon...until we were too tired. Guess where I went immediately when I was through.....yep, the craft room.

I noticed that Joanne at Crazy 4 Challenges-C4C89 wanted a card showing a favorite vacation spot or activity. I don't know which of us likes the ocean better....so I jumped right in and made a card showing a sailboat on the seas.

2 Sisters Challenge Blog #41is Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown #50 is use stripes

These are all fun challenges and I also noticed the Inspiration Challenge IC286 today on Splitcoaststampers was inspired by a website called Plate and Napkins, a party supply store.
This is my inspiration.

 http://www.platesandnapkins.com My boat isn't the same color but a sailboat just the same.

Stamps: I have no idea who made my sailboat stamp. It is a wooden stamp and if anyone knows, I would love to hear.

Brenda, this is FABULOUS! I love how you cut the image so far out of the box, and the punched border is perfect! I love the papers and shell images too! It's the perfect nautical card!!
I hope you're having a fabulous extended weekend :)

I love this Brenda! My fav part of your card ... the shells that you added! Another great "feature" on this beauty, the sailboat coming out of the circle! Enjoy your Memorial Day!
