Sensational Stripes at The Verve Blog







Jul15DIHGraphicHello Friends,  It has been doing nothing but rain here in sunny Florida for the last few days and I took advantage of the time indoors to play along with the Sensational Stripes Verve Challenge over at The Verve Blog.  Before I got started, I had my thoughts on my son who was on a 65 ft sailboat in the gulf of Mexico (yes during the deluge of rain) over the weekend, so I embraced my thoughts and decided to get out the sailboat from the Verve Stamp set With Love and create a water scene, as I worried. The colors were inspired by the graphic you will see to the left. I paper pieced the sailboat and used my Creative Memories wavy cutter to make the water I mean Stripes!  The clouds and sun is from Lawn Fawn and the birthday sentiment is also Verve from the Poppy Birthday set.

Hope you like my card half as much as I loved creating it!  Take care,   Nanc’

BTW…Ty made it home safe and he informed me I worried for nothing.  What does he know about being a mom! LOL
