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 :)

  11. 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.
