naturally nautical

Wow - I feel like the months are flying by.  How did it get to be June already?!? We've had a few hot days here and hopefully there will be more soon... summer is definitely my favourite season.

My friend Lindsey has chosen a nautical theme for this week at Seize the Birthday.  I usually don't put red, white and blue together but definitely works for a this theme. Was thinking afterwards that I could have used a wavy embossing folder for the waves... oh well.  Next time.

Please welcome Melanie Hungerford as our Surprise Party Guest! Looking forward to having her join us!  Be sure to check out the blog for the rest of the team's nautical treasures.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day and terrific weekend.

  1. I love this card! I've never thought of paper piecing this sailboat, but what a great idea. Very big waves for that little boat, though! :D

  2. So striking with the r,w, & b!! Fun sail ship with the great font too

  3. This card may be a casual design, but it really packs a punch with the colors you used. Very cool!

  4. Stand-out card, Glenda! Love the punchy colour combo and the paper-pieced boat.

  5. Truly a fabulous card! One of my favs!!! HUGS!

  6. I donno how you made it work so well with just two colors!! It's fantastic, graphic and fun! Loving it!

  7. Great design, the sentiment is perfect as the little sailboat looks like it's battling to get over the waves! Love the red white and blue and the dotty texture, Cathy x

  8. What a cute nautical card! The red-blue-white combo works great! And I love the wood veneer cloud with a heart! So sweet!
