Sailing away!


I just wanted to share a card I made for a great nephew, I finished it yesterday once the glossy accent on the hull of the yacht was dry.

I used the super 'Sailing Boat' by Lili of the Valley that I first saw Claire using and then when I was lucky enough to win a LotV voucher from Lorraine, he just happened to fall into my basket!  You know how it is!
I used a bp from a pad called 'Travel Light' that was free in Simply Cards & Papercraft and I used my Silhouette to die cut the waves, the wavy corner and the yacht.  Because the paper was already blocked and sectioned off it saved me the job of sorting a proper sketch as the hard work was already done for me, I hope you like it!

Thanks to everyone for your kind wishes for Amber, she is slowly getting there; here's a quick shot of her taken 5mins ago.  Please note, no sign of the air borne rice grains anywhere!

Id like to enter this card into the following

Amber might be feeling under the weather Keryn, but she's got her eye on you.

Mint licks, well like most large animals - cows, sheep, goats and so on, horses also benefit from vitamin licks, usually larg breeze block size things that sit in their fields.

But for horses you can get the Rolls Royce flavoured versions that can be hung in their stables, on trees in their paddocks or in play balls just as mentioed before.

Our boys like the oakwood apple and mint ones the best, but I must confess I've not noticed any improvements in breath quality.

Whilst here I must thank you for your support over the 'little incident' I posted about on Monday. It's still being dealt with but I hope to report some positive news soon.

Love your cute little card Keryn but I can't take my eyes of poor Amber:( Don't you hate to see then suffering. Hope she improves really quickly, give her a hug from me.

Oh Keryn I am so sorry to hear that Amber is unwell I do hope that she is better very soon, I know what it is like to have a sicky dog and the mess you have to clean up, lol. She is sooo beautiful, my little Polo is snuggled up on the settee asleep but it seems every time I move he wakes up to make sure I am not sat at my craft desk, I don't know why but he hates me crafting he sits and stares at me all the time, it fair gives me the creeps at times, lol.
I love your card and what a great image you chose to buy, I am so pleased that the voucher came in useful, I love the waves at the bottom of the card and those papers look fantastic, brilliant card i love it.

Hi Keryn

Here at last!!!

Loving your card very much .. . the background is brilliant .. .. and there was me picturing you piecing it all together LOL!!

The waves along the bottom are the perfect finishing touch.

Awww.. poor Amber. She does look sorry for herself (but snuggly too). I hope she is feeling a little better now.

Have a great weekend Keryn.

Love Jules xx

what a COOL and AWESOME card...
cool puppy to!

Clare said...

How on earth did I miss this post???. First things first, look at that gorgeous baby Amber. Poor little puppy girl she has been so sick poor thing. Im so glad she is on the mend though. Keryn is it just the pic or is Amber losing her puppy face?? her face looks longer but could be just the way she is laying. Think we need more pics of her!!!.
Wow what a beautiful card Keryn. I just love those LOTV images. You know im not into human stamps (only cute animal one's for me!) but I really like the LOTV human stamps as they haven't got weird faces without mouth's or bug googly eyes or strange bodies etc. They actually look cute. How cool is that wave that you have cut out on your Silhouette. Is that little diary card part of the paper's or on a seperate card?? looks so cool. Its a super card my friend. Sorry about the long post. Big hugs Clare xxx
