Hi friends! I am back from a wonderful week visiting my son in Missouri. It was my first time there, and I was awed at the beauty of the Ozark Mountains. Scroll down if you'd like to see a few pics!
My sweet friend LeAnne is hostess this week at The Paper Players, and she has a patriotic color combo for us. I thought these colors would also work well for a nautical theme, and since I needed to make an anniversary card for my DH, that's the route I went.
I still have oodles of products left from my 2015 Simon Says Stamp card kits, including the patterned paper I used today. The Sailing stamp set also came in the kit. I stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic Markers. I love this little sailboat!
I used the sketch at Mojo Monday and rotated it 180 degrees. At Simon Says Stamp, the Wednesday Challenge is "For a Guy".
Stamp Sets: Sailing (Simon Says Stamp)
Card Stock: White, Navy (Simon Says Stamp)

And here are a few promised picks from my Missouri trip. We went to so many beautiful places, it was hard just to pick a few!
This one was taken at Grand Gulf State Park (the little Grand Canyon), in Thayer, MO.
Hodgson Water Mill in Ozark County, MO.
Mammoth Spring State Park in Mammoth Spring, AK.
Last but not least, my handsome grand-dog Brody!
Thank for stopping by, and please visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players! We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!
