Sail away with me

Ok so I have to admit I've never actually been sailing.... But when the challenge on Daring Cardmakers this week was to make a card with the theme "wish you were here" this boat stamp came straight to mind:

The boat stamp fills the main part of the card and then I sponged the sea in Baja Breeze (to match the handwritten sentiment and mat) and used So Saffron to sponge a sun.

Gold brads bring the whole thing together. How did I do the cut-out corners? Using my 1/2" circle punch! The punch has a cross design on the inside and you line up the corner of the card with one quarter of the punch - simple!

Today I've got my lovely friend Ruth popping over for some crafty fun - with her doggy Jessie! Should be interesting to mix a dog with a toddler!!!

Thanks for reading my blog - I read and appreciate every comment.
