IB33 Sail On and a Giveaway!

Hi everyone!  Thursday is here...and time for another Inspired By challenge!  Laurel always has the nicest inspiration photos for her challenges!  Here's my take on today's:

And here's her prompt:

(I wish I had thought to sneak in a pretty little starfish like the one in the photo!)  I stamped my sentiment on a stitched tag and added a couple little enamel dots, and my anchor is from the retired Guy Greetings set; the DSP is some retired SU from many years back, and the embossing is the Cable Knit EF; I colored the anchor in with my blends:

It's hard to see, but I also added a piece of Corduroy ribbon in Night of Navy along the edges of the white panel.  I just love the effect it gives!  And here's the inside:

Both sentiments, outside and in, are from a set by Clearly Whimsy, called Ocean Journeys Sentiments.  I think this card would be great for a graduate, someone who is getting a new job or moving to a new home!  I don't have anyone that fits that bill right now, so if you would like to receive this card so YOU can send it to someone, just leave me a comment along with a valid email!  I'll pick a winner on Sunday, August 19 and if your name is chosen, it will be winging its way to you soon!

I hope you'll be inspired by our nautical theme this get creative and share your masterpieces with us over at Inspired By!  Can't wait to see them!

Just a few shots from Cassidy's karate classes!  Here she is intently listening to Master Fisher:

Delivering a kick...maybe a round house?  I have no idea!

And sometimes, just for fun (and to learn teamwork, how to follow directions and good old-fashioned exercise), they play, Cassidy is the "zombie dog" (you KNOW they love that), and they have to run around on all fours and tag others, who then also become zombie dogs!  It's pretty funny!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love the nautical feel of your card. I think I will try to CASE it when we get home. I need to get busy again on my cards for veterans. Loved the shading on your anchor.

This is such a pretty card. I love nautical themes having grown up on the west coast. Besides your wonderful cards (many of which I CASE), I really like how you add such beautiful photos to your blog posts. The ones from your walk the other day were the boots!

Your Card is Gorgeous! I am going to look for that stamp set, I like it!
Cassidy is growing so fast! What a good kid!
I think the crawling is to work out the excess energy, so they will pay attention! I could be wrong!
Thanks for the opportunity to vie for your card!
