Sail Away with PPA........


Wonderful colors.......beautiful image......just makes you want to sail away on a gorgeous summer's day......unless you are me.  They don't make sea bands or Dramamine strong enough to turn me into a sailor!  So when I am at the lake and my crew heads "out to sea", I sit on the beach, sip my Diet Coke and open my latest find from the library - it's not all bad!

I haven't been sailing in ages, so I don't really remember what it feels like! Your card will have to do for me for now. :) I like that you embossed the image in white on blue, it's very serene.

LOVE it!! The sailboat looks fabulous embossed in white and I love how you put two on the panel instead of just one. I just got this stamp and made my first card with it today and just love it. Great use of the colours. Beach and a book sounds good to me too LOL!

Love it Linda!! Your boats are just gorgeous! I am like you! I can go on a boat if the water is absolutely still. The minute there is a wave yep sea sick! Hugs, J

Great job, Linda! It reminds me of High Society and the True Love for some reason! LOL But your use of DSP is wonderful!

LOL, you always crack me up! I would be right there with you on the shore with a good book--not really a boat girl either. But I sure love to look at them and these two are gorgeous! So crisp and clean embossed in white and these colors sing with your choice of DSPs. Fabulous card, my friend!

Love how you paired up your boats and I'm with you at staying on the beach while the others go boating! Your distressing is great and you should be stressed out over it! Great job!

Oops, I meant ...shouldn't be stressed out over your distressing, I "posted" too quick!

This is a test post from me to me! Some people have told me that they are unable to comment......I have no clue how to fix that!

Yes, sea bands are a must for me too! What are you reading now? I am looking forward to a summer of reading! Only 13 teaching days left!! Love how you used the colours Linda! The torn edges of the middle layer looks great too!!!!
Hugs,
