hey there.

A late {live} posting for me.  I’ve been behind on feedly {had to do the ‘ole mark all as read}, feel like I’m racing around in circles but hope things calm down today.

Here’s today’s card:































So, the other day we made a road trip to Oregon.  We picked up our airplane seats…why yes, they will be heated:)  It’s all part of Darin’s master plan to have me as comfortable as possible {yay!}.  Anywho’s, one of my FAV Oregon crafting stores is Craft Warehouse.  It’s similar to a store we have, Ben Franklin, but Craft Warehouse is tax free for me.  The one thing I was ISO is the Carta Bella, Ahoy There.  Mission accomplished {plus a bunch of other goodies}.

I combined Ahoy There with the Paper Smooches Sailboat die.   One thing I didn’t notice until I took the pictures this morning is the very subtle star pattern in the cork.  That was from an earlier attempt to do something with that cork.  I like it:)  The sentiment is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler.

I really love working with the DCWV cork pads.  Isn’t that turquoise flag a fun pop of color?

  1. Happy shopping. I love the paper with the sweet little boat. So glad you could play with us at Paper Smooches Sparks! I hear you in the all read too. Sometimes it has to be done!

  2. Oh, so nautically cute! I don't know why I don't use my DCWV cork paper. Probably because it doesn't have that cool star embossing! πŸ˜‰

  3. Love the card and I thought you did the texture on the sail on purpose.
    I did the whole mark all as read except for this post.

  4. You so rock the nautical designs my friend! One of the first things I noticed was the star pattern on the cork, and I love it! Totally thought that was intentional. πŸ˜‰ Love how you stamped the sentiment right on the boat, and your take on that sketch could not be more perfect!
