Life Is Good from Sea to Shore

Hello, Friends and welcome to my blog.  What says "summer" or "vacation" more than seeing a sailboat as you stroll along the shoreline or from a nearby boat.This sailboat card is for a swap challenge and the assigned task was to use a toothpick.  Can you see my toothpick?  It's the mast!  This card uses an MFT die, origami folding, and a Spellbinder die for the waves.  The paper is from Colorbok and the sentiment was from the dollar bin --possibly Studio G--at a well-known craft chain.  Thanks for stopping by.

I hope to enter the following summer/beach/sea challenges:
