One for Two

Instead of working on a scrapbook for my granddaughter, I made a couple of cards. Bad grandma. I'll probably get to that tomorrow afternoon. I'm only going to show you one of the cards I made right now, but you'll see the other one eventually! I'd looked all week at City Crafter Challenge, where this week the theme is nautical. I have exactly three boat stamps, one fish stamp, and a few (very few) sea creatures. Didn't feel like moving the crafting supplies surrounding my Silhouette, so die cutting was out of the question. I have to say I was surprised that I came up with something that I actually liked! Took more than one trip to the recycle bin, but I got the card I wanted eventually. It also contains two NBUS stamps, so will qualify for Darnell's NBUS Challenge as well! Yippee Skippy!!


   


I'm very excited to be meeting up with a special friend, so I thought I'd make a card and tell her. This is the result:




About 18 months ago, maybe 19, I won Paulina's 10-Minute Craft Dash, and the prize was a GC for DeNami Designs. I chose two sets of four sea creatures. They included this sailboat and treasure chest. That's my NBUS. I stamped them all in black and colored them with Copics. The bubbles are stamped with Memento ink. A Neenah white base and white scrap, and a scrap of light blue.  The sentiment is made up of various letters masked and carefully stamped from the TAWS Adorabowl set. The Twinery twine, and that's about it. Enjoy the last bit of Sunday, and happy dances everyone.

Super cute! Those little DeNami stamps are so cute and perfect for creating patterns like this! I'm sure your granddaughter will forgive you (if you bring her a kringle!)

Bad grandma!! But very happy blog friends as we get to "sea" a card! These little images are so sweet - I love all the little bubbles.
