Smooth Sailing

Hey everyone.. wow yet again I have neglected my blog lol. Unfortunately, I won't be back into the regular swing of blogging for some time still. I just happened to have some time to write today. I've been busy with miss 4 year old and miss 2 (almost 3 and it breaks my heart) year old.. and redoing my craft room.. again!

Adam just finished making my desk a few months ago and stuff was going good... (the room wasn't complete yet) until I found a deal on craigslist and HAD to have it. So I got a super deal on white cube storage (about $4 per cube). I asked Adam to redo my room/ his office .. even though just months ago he said "are you sure this is how you want it? Because once it's done.. its done! And I will not be re doing anything you decide later you don't like"... well I asked anyway and he decided that my new idea was much better. So needless to say the room is a mess and I can't get to anything pretty much. And for the next few weeks it's only gonna be worse lol.

So today I have a little card I made real quick. The sailboat and anchor are both from Life's A Beach and were cut with my expression 2. The circle and scalloped circle are both from Cricut Craft Room Basics and were also cut with the expression 2. I embossed the red circle with my Cuttlebug and the Swiss Dots folder. After I adhered all of the parts onto the circles I put the entire sailboat in the circle on a pop dot. I ran some red velvet ribbon around the card and over the velvet ribbon some burlap twine which goes around twice and has a cute little bow. I hand wrote the sentiment.

I'm entering this card into the following challenge:

Hope you like my card!

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
