More inspiration from Nancy and Michelle,

Now I have found out that Nancy's card that inspired me was actually inspired by this one from Michelle.... I can say thanks to both of them for the wonderful design.  I thought of all my stamps that would work well with this design ... the Silhouette Bells came to mind.  I started by stamping them in black on some PP by Kaisercraft - but decided I didn't like that and re-did them in a green pigment ink on white card.
I put the PP on the white base after I masked and stamped the Old French writing.  I added a strip of black an mounted the three squares and added the sentiment.

I then played around with the first pieces I stamped  and came up with this....
It is a tall skinny card... but I am really pleased with the outcome.

I have also been working on something special - but can't reveal it all.... so here is a sneak peak.....

Hope you are all having a great start to the week.... Take care and thanks for visiting

Dawn, can't wait to see what you are working on... sneak peek looks interesting!!! Love your cards.

My boys do sail - although only beginners, Conor did his first sailing course (they can start at 7/8) last year and is doing one again this year.... and he has a little Oppie! We are on the water most weekends. I have been sailing since I was 10! DH and I had a Laser 2 before we got married that we raced... but sold it before we got married!!!! Good decision!!! I was helm and he was my crew!!!! Need I say more!!! LOL!!!!
