Taking time off

Hi everyone,

Things are crazy busy around here with several projects all going on at the same time so I have decided to take some time off from blogging and commenting.

Will be back later in the year.

Hugs,

Deloris

Nautical Birthday Card


This is for my neighbor who is celebrating his 92nd birthday.  He likes nautical cards so I used a wonderful sailboat image and print papers from the Ooh La La Shawn Jenkins CD.  Kept it simple with just white borders so the image and papers will pop.

I am entering my card in the following challenges

Greetings from Fort Clinch Campground in Fernandina Beach Florida




Hubby and I are enjoying a few days at the campgrounds at Fernandina Beach/Amelia Island. This place is awesome.  The campground is right on the Florida/Georgia border near Cumberland Island.  We are fortunate in that our campsite is very close to the beach.  I love to walk on the beach and watch the waves.  They have hammocks at the entrance to the beach where you can relax and enjoy the sound of the waves and the sea birds.   We are already planning our return trip later this year.

Get Well Wishes

Hope you can join us for the new challenge starting today at Ooh La La Creations.  The challenge theme is Get Well Wishes.

It's hard to believe that 6 months have passed since I joined the wonderful ladies on the Ooh La La Creations Design Team.  This is my last post for the team and I wanted to make a special card.  I was inspired by this card made by the super talented Pauline.  To create my card, I selected this lovely image and patterned papers from the Paula Oakley CD.  Cut out all the pieces with my Silhouette Cameo. Assembled all the layers, then added a bow and button tied on with twine.
