Sail Away

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a GREAT week.

I have so enjoyed having my sister and niece visit---they leave today and I am a bit bummed (but I know I will be seeing them in just over a month so that helps with the goodbyes!)

Here is a card I created last week. The stamps are all from Gina K Designs--Lazy Days of Summer and Eclectic Summer (StampTV kit) sentiment.
This is just a quick fun design I thought would be a cute way to show off the boat image.
I cut the sentiment in half and used the "Happy" part to create the circle...just repeatedly stamped the word and then punched it out. Then I stamped the script birthday below. This was simple but I loved the result. I freehand cut the cloud shapes from designer paper and sponged a bit around the edges.

I will edit in the designer paper I used after my sister leaves--(she is staying in my stamp room!)

Hope you have a wonderful day!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Carolyn... this is simply refreshing! I love the crips clean look and the simplicity of it along with the great color combo! Awwww I'm sad your sister is leaving too... *sniff sniff*. I hate good-byes. But... the upside... it won't be long until you're together again, right? Have a great day!

I like the DP paper, makes me think of the material that covered mattresses a long long time ago. Before most of you were born ;) The card just flows, it is refreshing.
