Sailing Away

Rocking along with some fun sailboats today.We didn't get our beach and margaritas on Saturday and this was as close as I came to any water - other than maybe dishwater!

The sailboat die and sentiment were from last months Simon Says Stamp kit.  Cute kit with some fun things in it.  I even fired up the sewing machine for this one!

Thanks for stopping by............

Last month's kit? Did I miss a month?! LOL!! I really think the sewing detail adds a wonderful element to this! The sailboats with the papers are just darling! I can't wait to play with this kit!! It's a good one!

Simply delightful! Love the paper piecing, and gosh, this must have been fiddly with those tiny pieces.And love your waves with the fun stitching! Of course the sentiment is perfect (well, yeah, it would be of course! BUt I love it) I always forget about doing stitching, and even took a sewing machine downstairs so that I _could_ do some stitching. Really terrific job on this one, Miss L,TFS

This is fabulous, Lynn! Love the paper pieced sails and that sentiment is wonderful. Love how you used your sewing machine. :-D I didn't get anywhere near water (or margaritas) on Saturday, either. :-( I'm sure that means we owe ourselves a party whether or not there's a particular reason, right?

What a fun card Lynn!! I love those paper pieced sail boats and I love the waves that you put stitching in, really gives that feel of motion. Love the font of the "sail away" too and the little hearts. Your blue card base is just perfect for your sail boats too, love, love, love! Hugs, Brenda

Come sail away was my old HS class song - thought of it the minute I saw this. Love the multiple sail boats and clean look of this. Fun die - I may have to get that one! Hugz

Marilyn said...

Brilliant design and such a cute card! I was so tempted to buy that kit and after seeing what you created, I may just pop over to SSS and do it!

Jessi Fogan said...

From personal experience, dishwater doesn't count, lol! I love this, and the stitching is perfect!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

I remember ogling Simon's kit with the sailboats and thinking that would be so much fun and you've proven that indeed that was a winner. I love this card. I totally laughed at your dishwater comment. Hey, at least dishwater is safer than the sea--no sharks to get you there!

Monica said...

These are the cutest boats I have seen. Very lovely card.
