Card Concept #12 and The Challenge #9


The rest of the family is watching TV and I'm stealing away time with a laptop. Yeesh! I may have to hide in another room with it. If any of them see me on it, they will want it. :)

I have another card to share that I made during last week's crafting marathon on my "cheater day" at home with the kids. One of those today would have been nice! But I tackled the grocery store this afternoon while Big Daddy was at home to watch The Piglets and I could shop without them (and therefore spend less $ -- can I get a what-what?!)

Here are two challenges that I combined to inspire my card:

The Card Concept and The Challenge,

I stamped my background stripes using PTI's Super Stripes and CTMH Moonstruck ink instead of using paper pieces, because that's what I pictured with the nautical theme.  The red piece of patterned cardstock is from my CTMH Free To Be Me paper pack that I've been using up. Enjoy is from my PTI Phrase Play die and the sweet little sailboat is from Lawn Fawn's Float My Boat stamp set.
I considered this to be CAS style.
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
God Bless,
