nautical thanks


Hello and Happy Monday!!

On Saturday I did some power shopping at Impress:


Fresh Ink:  Navy, Red Currant & Island

A big shout out to Impress for celebrating their 26th Birthday!!!  Isn't that awesome?!

All the stamps except the sentiment are by Impress.  The sentiment is a freebie from Avery Elle.  I had the chevron but I don't think I've inked it up.  The other two are brand new purchases inspired by this card that I snapped a pic of in the Impress shop:


edited to add that Novell let me know that this is a Julie Ebersole creation!

The tag is thin wood...it is from Impress and wait for it, I used my corner chomper on it!  I actually have a bunch of the business card sized wood sheets but never thought of shaping them!  This is exactly why I savor my visits to Impress!

I was inspired by Lisa's latest sketch:



The nautical theme is compliments of

Curtain Call


I'm such a fan of Stacey's and thrilled that I am able to play along.  I mean really, who doesn't the nautical trend?

Speaking of nautical trends, thanks to Niki G who reminded me of the Paper Crafts July Nautical Challenge!


Here's to a fabulous week!
