Sailboat Birthday w/Angelina Fibers

Oh , my poor blog! So neglected and starved for attention. It sure got crazy at home trying to get things ready for our annual July 4th bash. The rain interfered so much and by evening I was beat! Now I have a bunch of cards to post and a ton of wonderful blog awards to hand out. Everyone has been so kind and generous to me with their comments and awards--goodness I've missed you all so much!
So this card is my sailboat stamp from Class Act (they are based in Canada and have an amazing supply of stamps perfect for guys). I use this stamp quite a bit, but this time I played with my Angelina fibers again. I made the sails with the white fiber and cut it out as one piece. I colored and stamped the boat part and cut that out as well. Next I did the water with white and a touch of blue, green, and gold fibers. Isn't that so cool looking? The clouds were stamped and heat embossed, then I layered everything on top, added the sentiment and some dew drops. I thought it made for an unusual look, and my son was dutifully impressed when I gave it to him.
Oh, and a big shout out to my Auntie Carol who told me she loves to visit my blog and actually reads what I write and loves my cards. She doesn't know how to leave a comment, and that's ok--I'm thrilled she visits just because she loves me. Back at ya Auntie Carol!


  1. I was beginning to wonder what happened to you... I was getting worried!

    This card is gorgeous! Love that stamp. It works perfectly for a man's card (and those are just SO hard to make!)


  2. Wow! This is absolutely stunning. You are so creative and talented. Beautiful, beautiful card.
