Ahoy Matey!!

I don't think I've ever made this many manly cards. So here's a post of all my recent ones. They are for all ages! This will be great for Father's Day or a birthday.
Love the fern on vellum. It looks so much more realistic and fine
And last but not least is a doodle from Treehouse called Friendship Bloom
I have been wanting to make a sailboat card so here it is!
I'm most proud of the "waves" I made with the Hero Arts border stamp. I highlighted them with a shiny gel pen.
That border stamp is so under used. I must think of more creative ways to use it!
Last but not least is this colorful one. It was fun to play with this Hero Arts "Just a Note" stationary set.
My next post will be a food post to keep your hunger "satisfied". Until my return, ta ta for now!!!
