Summer Sails

My original thought was to make an actual card to send to a friend currently deployed to Iraq.  I wanted to participate in the 365 Card daily challenge, though, and by the time I got my card done, I decided it was a little to "kiddy" for an adult man.  However, no worries, I'll just put in in the stack of cards going out for Operation Write Home and add it as my second entry in their mid-week throwdown.

The brads were a compromise for me.  I really, really wanted them in the citrus leaf color but, alas, no embossing powder or pre-colored brads to be found in my stash.  Hence, I used a small hole punch on the citrus leaf paper and pushed red brads through.  Kinda like it!

Until next time,


  1. Wonderful card to send into OWH! Love the wavy embossing!

  2. This would be wonderful to frame.

  3. Really liking your card. I'm a water, beach, ocean lover. I like the way you did the brads....gave it extra pop. Nice job!

  4. Great card....i love what you did with the brads!!! That's a wonderful idea!!! TFS!!!

  5. I really like your card! The kids will too!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. You bless me!
