I am not afraid of storms...


Happy Monday!

Welcome to the EAD Designs Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 7 am pacific}

You should have arrived here from Spectacular Shellye's blog


If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the EAD Designs Blog.  Every week there is free vinyl...want a chance to win?  All you have to do to be eligible for the free goodies is to leave comments as you go through the blog hop...easy smeasy!

Today I have a card that has been swirling around in my head for awhile...


The sweet boat is from The Craft's Meow It's a Shore thing set.  The paper is October Afternoon Farm house collection.

I am not afraid of storms,
for I am learning how to sail my ship.


The sentiment is from the Tea Time stickerz set:


I'm a huge fan of quotes...and really love this one.  I'm sending this to a gal that is going through some tough times.  I believe that we should all learn how to sail our own ships....don't you?  My philosophy in life is to take the good with the bad...learn from your experiences...things happen for a reason.  I personally have learned so much about myself after going through some difficulties...I know that they have made me a much stronger gal for it.

Gallery Idol 2012 is in full swing so I'm going to enter today's card since it falls into the encouragement category.



Don't forget about the EAD Designs May Color Challenge


Remember that everybody that plays...wins


One lucky chickie will be picked to be our June Guest Designer:


Remember...
