Hello Sailor - for DCM, and Wedding Card


On the Cricut message board we have a UK crafters chatty thread, and this wedding card is for a challenge we set ourselves this week. The heart is from the Wedding solutions cartridge, the shaped label is a nesting die by go-kreate, and the papers are by Making Memories.



The Daring Cardmakers dare this week is Boys and their Toys, so this is mine. I cut the anchor at 4" from my new Life's a Beach cartridge, the hello stamp is a wood mounted studio G from the dollar bin, and the sailor letters are Making memories glittery alphabet. I doodled a little chain border. The blue hopsack pattern paper is by Funky Hand
I am quite proud of the way I managed to make my knot of red twine look like some amazingly complicated nautical knot. The truth of the matter is that when I have been sailing, people keep throwing ropes at me yelling incomprehensible stuff like 'tie the warp around the cleat' - WHAAT, why can't they just say 'wrap this rope around the round thingie over there', then I would jump to it, and quickly and nimbly do the job instead of standing there pathetically with a rope in my hand looking helpless. Mike and I have decided that in the interests of marital harmony it is better, much much better, if he goes sailing alone, and I stay home to play with paper.
I am messing around with my blog settings, so you may see a lot of different backgrounds until I find the one I am happy with :)

Enfys both cards are just darling. I particularly like the "Sailor" card. I love my new LAB cart and since Hubby was in the Navy a gillion years ago and this would be cute for him.

You fooled me with the new looking blog, Enfys, thought I'd come to the wrong place but it's looking good.
Both your cards are lovely, that knot looks very complicated!
