You Are My Anchor Card

Happy Friday!!
I'm so glad it's the end of the week!  It's been a good week but it feels good to slow down a little- we've been busy.  And tomorrow is supposed to be nice here in Virginia- nearly 70!  Sounds pretty great, doesn't it? :)

I've been posting a lot this week and have one more card to share with you all:

Anchor Card 2

This one was inspired by a few things.  First, the subject matter- I was inspired by Taheerah's Cure For the Monday Blues challenge #9 to use the colors and nautical theme.  I went clean and simple with the design because of this week's Lawnscaping Challenge.

And notice the embossing?  I wanted to use that so I could remind you to watch HSN this coming Monday!!  Teresa Collins will be one sharing her gorgeous collections, tools, and diecutting machine, the Ebosser!  You might even see a card or two from me as samples!!  Don't you think it would be fun to have more craft shows on tv?  I used to love watching Martha Stewart and Carroll Duvall back in the day...

I used my new Lawn Fawn Float My Boat stamps and die set for this card.  The base is created out of Stampin' Up! naturals white cardstock and has been embossed with the dotted chevron folder by Teresa Collins for Ebosser.  Before running it through the machine, I inked over the edges with Smoky Slate ink.  The sentiment is stamped on gray patterned paper by Fancy Pants.

I am so glad I had a little time this week to create!  As the girls get busier with springtime activities, I know my time will be cut short!  Better enjoy it while I can! :)

Hope you have a great weekend!
