Sail into the Sunset

Today's card was CASE'd from Mary Brown. I'm still playing around with the Sail Away stamp that I purchased from the summer mini and just had to try this sunset out!

The sunset was sponged using pumpkin pie and crushed curry ink. I made a template using a Post It note. Soo simple!

Another cool thing that I completely forgot about, and again learned from Mary Brown is masking the sails. I stamped the image twice, once on the card and another time on a white piece of card stock. Then I cut the sails out and pasted them over the other!

Sail Away to Halifax

 It has been soo long since I blogged!

My husband and I went to Halifax a week ago for a good friend's wedding. We had a great time there and ate A LOT of great food... we certainly didn't go hungry! While my husband and I were driving along the coast one day, we got talking about retirement and the future (yes, I know that's soo far off, but its good to dream). My husband wants to live on a street called Lobster Lane and it's soo funny because we have seen that street in NB as well as in Peggy's Cove!

The card above was brought to life after our trip there. When we arrived home, I had some goodies waiting for me and couldn't wait to try them out. I debated over whether to buy the striped grosgain ribbon and finally did (now I need more).

For the card above, I used Sale Away stamp set (from the new Summer Mini), Teeny Tiny Wishes and the Medallion background stamp. Also used was the Tag Punch, Brads and Twine.

Here are a few pictures of us in and around Nova Scotia!
