You Float My Boat

Good Morning Everyone,

Hope your hump day Wednesday is going well! I have a quick little post of a card that I made using the Beach Bum stamps from Taylored Expressions for a special person who totally floats my boat, using Taylor's Friday Cupcake sketch from last week. I made a card using this sketch before with this card - but I really loved this sketch and it kept looking like those circles were portholes - so I went with a nautical themed card (wow! this is the longest sentence evah!) I really had a lot of fun using the scraps from my overflowing scrap basket which is now in a box - and also I found these fun big brads while cleaning up! (bonus!)

Here is a closer look at the little cuppie sailing the 7 seas - isn't he just sooo cute on that boat! I added some crystal effects on the ocean and on the sails and sponged the sides and added a little liquid pearl to the card (couldn't resist ;)

Check out all the awesome things that are on SALE over at Taylored Expressions!! Taylor is having a moving sale and there are a ton of items that are awesomely marked off!!! I love shopping in my PJs in bed!  ;)

Well, I am off to get my laptop repaired - it has crashed and it looks like my harddrive is gone... :( so I am going to go and show it to someone to help me (heLp!!)  I am using my DH's to type this.....So for all of you reading this - make sure you back up your stuff on your computer! I even had a MAC and it crashed.. ugh! <--- that is the pit in my stomach... hopefully something can be salvaged!

Wish me luck on salvaging something from my laptop!
Wishing you all a very happy Wednesday!
hugs to all!
Sankari :)

Incredible work. Truly, thank you so much for sharing your talent through your blog.

this is fantastic! Love the crystal effects, the portholes, the ribbon... but I think the best bit (and this might sound odd) is the yellow liquid pearls - I love how they tie the yellow cardstock behind the main image to make a smooth design

What an absolutely adorable card! Just too cute! Love how the sails pop out and the brads (I thought they were washers from the hardware store when I first seen them!). Great job! Love it! Thanks for sharing.
