Another nautical inspired card

Here is another nautical inspired “thank you”  I created with the extra background I made.  This time I used a life saver silhouette file, shaded a bit with copics (can’t tell from the picture though) and covered it in glossy accents.  I totally messed up the “thank you” at the bottom, so had to cover it with something.  Not crazy about the silver sentiment, but I couldn’t get it off the paper without ruining the background.  So, it will just have to do.  Not very creative since it looks exactly like the other!  It has been one of those days!

Nautical Thank You

Here is my take on a masculine “Thank You” card.  Masculine cards are so difficult for me!  Obviously, this is Nautically inspired 🙂  Nothing mind blowing and I am sure it has been done before.  The cute anchor “charm” was created using my silhouette and heat embossed with Ranger’s detail silver embossing powder.  The photo isn’t very good (snow is coming our way, so lighting is very poor), but you get the general gist of it.  Probably as masculine as I am going to get!   anchors away

Happy Anniversary!

Here is a card I made for my hubby for our Anniversary.  The challenge was to make a “masculine-like” card.   Peanut butter and jelly is masculine, right?  We are having a debate on whether I am the jelly or the peanut butter though.  Which side of the sandwich looks more like a girl to you?

The image is a digital stamp by Drawn with Character.  I love her images and they are so fun to color!

Review: The Other Queen

The Other Queen
The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The more I read Gregory, the more I dislike the repetitiveness of her writing. She fills pages and pages of the same thoughts. Her characters go on and on about the same thing over and over again. Gregory’s books have become a bit boring to me. Also, the point of views that this story is told from is a bit boring as well. Kind of a snoozer. Glad to be done with this series.

Review: The Boleyn Inheritance

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Overall, I really liked it. I didn’t know much about wives 4&5, so it was interesting to read what could have been. However, Gregory is so repetitive in her writing that it really becomes boring and eventually detracts from the story itself. I find myself reading the same things over and over and over again. I am not sure why either…maybe to make the book longer? If it wasn’t for all the repetition, I think this would have been fantastic.

Review: The Art of Fielding

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Started off very strong but started to fall flat for me towards the end. One of those books that I did enjoy reading, but wasn’t disappointed when it ended.
