a creative mind at work in the deep dark basement

Wednesday, May 4, 2011


I know some of you haven't even gotten a good dose of spring weather, but I'm ready for some summer weather.  I'm ready to go hang out on the boat with the kids and lay in the sun for a little bit.  My kids love the summer time and being outside, and ask to go out on the boat a lot.  

This card was created for the Go-to Sketches call a bit back and uses Sketch #25 which was Ryann Salamon's sketch.  I love this little sailboat and how perfect is the paper to go with it.  I pulled used some scraps of the paper pack to paper piece the boats.

Think warm weather, think warm weather!
Supplies used:
Stamps: Text Objects from Verve Stamps 
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Very Vanilla from SU, Summer Sunrise from Papertrey Ink, October Afternoon Seaside collection 
Inks: Aqua Mist from Papertrey Ink, Night of Navy from SU 
Accessories: Summer Sunrise ribbon from Papertrey Ink
