Anchors Away

What a stinker of a day - 41 degrees - Emma has just left for a wedding which is outside - hopefully there will be plenty of shade - as there are only seats for the oldies! I've had a lovely afternoon at Shirley's and I will share the cards we made in a later post - nice and cool at her place - no gopher trip for Doug this afternoon as it was too hot. We chatted and made cards and finished with a cup of tea - it's amazing how refreshing a cup of tea is even in the heat.

I came home and decided to make a card for this weeks Annabelle Stamps Blog Sketch Challenge.

Base card and ink are SU Marina Mist
Stamp Set - SU The Open Sea - I stamped the maps onto SU Whisper White, then over stamped the anchors and sponged around the edges and the gaps.
Sentiment: SU Teeny Tiny Sentiments
SU Punches - small and large ovals and scalloped edge.
Kitchen Twine used to make knot.
Blue Rhinestones from stash.
