Kathy gave the challenge for a nautical-type card this week for the CCEE Stampers. My card is a bit small being 4 x 4. It started out as a tent topper but it just wouldn't work with my larger image. So, this is it and I do like it just the same. I love nautical cards and this makes me want to head to the beach.
I colored my boat with Copics, sponged some clouds, and added a seashell. The images are all from a soon-to-be released set from Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company called Silly Shells. It is a super set.
Come on over to CCEE Stampers and make a nautical card..it can be a ship, lighthouse, boat, etc.

Good Morning! Hope you all had a great weekend. I went to a wedding on the Mississippi River this past weekend. It was gorgeous. The groom was a friend of my youngest son. He was 'best man' so I got to see him and my DIL this weekend, too.
I'm celebrating my birthday today, also. Another year older and I feel it as I only slept about an hour last night. That's another story.
For this week's Father's Day challenge at Friends of Speedy TV, I went very CAS. I'm thinking that is all that is needed for a masculine card....no frills. I inked my small acrylic block with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Stormy Sky and stamped. I then added stamped my leaf in Stampin'Up! Night of Navy ink.
The stamp sets I used are Mark's Finest Papers Autumn Glory and Get Reel for the sentiment.
We hope you'll join us this week for the Father's Day challenge#24 and make a Father's Day card. This is the stamp set that a lucky winner will receive.
