Anchor's Away!

Hello Readers,

For today I am playing along with CAS(E) this Sketch and CAS Colours & Sketch challenges. Here is my card for today, enjoy.

Ahhh... Blue, my favorite color. So soothing and peaceful.
To me, the sentiment echoes what the colors signify.
I used a rope stamp for the last stamp of the lineup.
I think it anchors the card; no pun intended.
I used minimal embellishments
trying to match the Dapper Denim color.
Entering Challenges:


Well hello friends! I am back from a short hiatus spending time with my family. My husband's father and his wife came for visit to our home. During that time I also had the honor of spending my birthday with them, husband, and children. We had ice cream cake which was adorned with a tea light because we were out of candles (note to self: get candles before my son's birthday).  Now I am back to stamping and trying to find my mojo again... I have a feeling this year will be the best yet... 

Well I have to go and eat dinner. Thank you so much for joining me today and am so happy to be back in Blogland!! Take care everyone and we will see you soon. Until then, take care and happy crafting.

All the best,
Shawna
