Nautical Thank You

Wow, I'm overwhelmed by ALL the comments I got on my OWH bloghop post. It was lots of fun hopping and checking out all the creations, especially since I had no homework for my masters class last week. Tomorrow is the last day of this class, followed by a week of next week, so that means TWO WHOLE WEEKENDS without homework. Woohoo! Of course I need to work on 17 report cards....

I just sent off 30 of my 50 thank you notes. This was the last design that I included 10 of:

This weeked I also finished my friend's wedding invitations. She wanted a nautical theme (though the wedding is being held at a vineyard, nowhere near water!?!) and I made these gold embossed anchors before I knew how many invites. I had 14 extra so I used them here and embossed the sentiment to match. Both the card and anchor are matted on navy, though it looks black in my horrid picture. I needed to balance out the gold at the bottom so I did gold eyelets up top. I don't use eyelets enough these days I think, so they may make more appearances in future projects.

Now it is time to veg and watch some American Idol. I thought I would hate it this year without Simon, but I'm loving the panel of judges this year nevermind the very talented singers!



  1. Eyelets and brads are both sort of forgotten these days! Your card is awesome, Caryl! I love the Nautical theme, and I'm so happy that you've had a bit of time to play! I'm a die hard Aerosmith fan, so I'm lovin' Mr. Tyler on Idol :) Hey, by the way, did I tell you we are going to spring training? Woot woot! I get to meet and spend the day with one of my blogging friends while we are down there! This will be our first vacation in almost 38 years! We are looking forward to it. Take care, dear friend! Just give those 17 sweeties an "A", and make some cards! Hugs...

  2. Oh now I wish I watched AI. I love the card with a Nautical theme. Great idea. So how many cards did you make?
    Thanks for the sweet comment about my cards. I am having fun. I love that you take the time to visit. I know how very busy you are.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, they always make my day. I love to get feedback and would love to visit your blog too!
