A Very Little Boat


Happy Thursday! One more day and we are finally off for two..whoot!
What do you all have planned for Mother's Day? We will be celebrating my Mother-In-Law's birthday along with Mother's Day on Saturday at our house with Al's sister and her family. For my Mom, just the two of us will go out and spend some time together. Then Sunday, it is my day!! Do you know what I want to do... have a lovely breakfast, share the morning with my family and then have the rest of the day in my studio playing with paper. Is that selfish?? I feel like I am being a wee bit selfish.
Alrighty on to the card... Kristina posted her "Color Challenge #8" last night so I quick ran in my studio and whipped this up so that I could post it this morning. I really should have been sitting with Al instead of making this card, because he was busy editing my Friday Flick by himself. Sorry honey...I love you!! BTW, thanks to everyone who has left Al kuddos for fixing my blog. Al helps me out a lot with all this technical stuff as well as with the kiddos. Al ROCKS, sorry ladies he is mine LOL!! Anyway, the colors for this challenge are brilliant blue, bashful blue, pumpkin pie and whisper white (all Stampin' UP!). I used the 1 1/4" & 1" circle punches to create the waves in the water. The little boat is from ABC Images by Stampin' UP! The swirly flourish in the sky (thought it kinda looked like it could be the wind blowing) is from the Fancy Pants set "Alpha Chic" inked with bashful blue and stamped off once. The sentiment is from Stampin UP! as well, "Wavy Verses". I used a white gel pen to accent the pumpkin zig zagged piece at the bottom and diamond Stickles to hi-light the waves. Lastly I used the corner ticket punch on the corners of the whisper white piece. This card measures 4 1/4" squared.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a super day!!
