she stood...



You all know that coffee cards are my favorites to design...did you know that nautical was 2nd runner up?  There is something about nautical designs that make me happy.  

cardstock:  papertrey ink vellum paper:  carta bella/ahoy there  stamps:  verve stamps/adjusted sails  ink:  stampin' up white embossing  other:  spellbinders circles, studio calico wood veneer

I love sentiments...LOVE them.  Verve Stamps is always a great source of thee most awesome inspirational quotes.  Today's card uses Adjusted Sails...it's on sale for $2.40!

I decided to use Carta Bella's Ahoy There collection.  I need to replenish my nautical paper collection supply <-- I say that but honestly, I have so much paper but I'm such a collection girl.

Loved playing with Mojo Monday's Tall & Skinny sketch:


I remembered that Mountain Plains Crafters has a Nautical challenge:


Fun to be joining these ladies, first time linking!  I've gotten to know a handful of them through the Coffee Lovers Blog Hops:)

  5. Tall and skinny, what I love is that that type of card makes me think of you, even though I know that you're petite. Well I think coffee is my #1, wine #2 and perhaps someday I should get better at making birthday and thank you cards? Maybe I need more vintage trailer stamp sets?
