Oh Ship!


Hello!!!  I am ecstatic to be typing up this post right now! My internet has been down since late Friday night and I've been wandering around like a lost soul all weekend.  Luis and Atti have been treading very carefully around me - no internet makes for a VERY grumpy Jen!  LOL! Anyway it's back and I have lots to catch up on but first I wanted to post a card for the Simon Says Wednesday birthday challenge and for the Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge.  This is the card I sent to my brother this year.  I didn't actually forget his birthday but I knew this card was going to be really late.  He enjoyed it and I has some fun using some red embossing powder and some old Cosmo Cricket papers.  Okay.  Off to catch up on blog surfing!  Yay!!

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft ) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  ((Salt Air Mini Deck) Cosmo Cricket

Inks:  (VersaMark, VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Zinc Rouge) American Crafts

Maybe your internet connection died of shock when I left a couple of comments on your blog? LOL! I hope it doesn't go down again at the repeat visit. ;-) I love this card, Jen. The embossed ship, the design, the colours, and the clever sentiment, it all makes for a striking combination.

Fabulous card Jen, the embossing on the design paper tag is perfect! (ps don't know how you coped without the net... I'd be devastated lol)
