Hi, everyone! I'm here today to share two cards.

Card 1

The first card was inspired by the current Paper Smooches Sketch Challenge. When I saw that horizontal rectangle, I immediately thought of waves. Then, I decided the vertical rectangle could be a far-off ship sailing through those waters.

This card will probably be going to the hubby of a dear friend. He's retiring in May, and I hear there may be a pirate-themed party in the works.

Card 2

The second card is posted at Words 2 Craft By as a quick reminder that our current challenge runs through next Wednesday. It's going to a local children's hospital... for an older patient to give to her/his mom for mother's day.

Parting Thoughts

Have a great week! As always, thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!


  1. I almost made my Phenomenal Women card using this set - you did it much better than I would have! Great Job!

  2. I love your cool card, Sybrina!! Love how you've colored your image and your colors. Hope all is well with you!!
