Smooth Sailing

Just about anything nautical will soothe my soul.  I suppose that is half of why I love my morning walk as I view the Puget Sound on my walk around Chambers Bay Golf Course.   This time of year you are almost certain to see a few sail boats enjoying the beautiful PNW summer days. I enjoyed creating this card for you and hope you will play along with us this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.  Try one of Doodle Pantry's images.  They are so vibrant, quick and easy to use.  This image is called "Smooth Sailing."  It comes with this sentiment and some added papers,  I chose to use my own as a have a room full of paper and need to use it up.  I enjoyed creating the porthole for your viewing!  Hope this cards soothes your soul!  Have a great day!


The prize from our sponsor this week will be a
$10 gift coupon for non-EU residents, 
or 3 single priced products for EU residents (not labeled as a “bundle”).

Welcome Little One

I was so delighted to be able to make a card this week!  
I definitely feel craft deprived! 
I'm not sure how I found the time but I'm happy that it happened!  
I adore this sweet giraffe! 
 I seem to have a collection of giraffe digis. 
 He was screaming at me to use him!!!
 He's a bit nontraditional but I thought he made a cute baby boy card!  
What do you think?   
This image can be found at Bugaboo Stamps and 
is called "Giraffe Heart 2." 


This is the sketch for this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
I loved using it!
Be sure to play along.
