Salt Water and Anchors….for JAI457…

Hello All!

Thank you for stopping in for Today’s Card!

Today’s Card is for a Sketch Challenge!

Just Add Ink #457  (JAI457)


Here is the Challenge!JAI_457I do like this sketch! It will go in the sketch book!


Here is my Card!


I bought this Washi Tape from Michael’s last year at the end of Summer!

Very ‘beachy’ and ‘nautical’ were in a tube of 6 different Washi Tapes!

I used 2 of them here…the ‘Anchor’ tape and the ‘Salt Water’, I trimmed the

‘Salt Water’ from a strip that had 2 other sayings…’sea shells’ and ‘sunshine’!

‘Salt Water’ just seemed to fit!


Here is the inside of my Card!


I brought the ‘anchors’ inside too!




Whisper White Thick- card base, 8.5″ x 5.5″ scored @ 4.25″ fold in half on the score line

Whisper White Regular- greeting circle

Coastal Cabana- scallop circle mat


Sailing Home- anchor and greeting (can be ordered on June 4th)

High Tide- inside sentiment


Coastal Cabana- greeting, inside sentiment

Smoky Slate- anchor


Layering Circles Dies- scallop circle

Stitched Shapes Dies- greeting circle

Smooth Sailing Dies- anchor (can be ordered on June 4th)


Washi Tape- purchased from Michael’s last year, a beachy, nautical themed stack


Here is my Card, again!


Sorry the pictures are a bit dark…the flash kept reflecting off the Washi Tape!



Today my Mother is celebrating her Birthday in heaven with all the heavenly hosts!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Also, my sister, Mary, is driving over from WV, from another sister’s, Michele,

to spend time here with me! I will be blessed with a week and a half with her!

Mary will be the first of all my Family to come visit me here in NC!

I am so excited! Mary is #6 of 7 children, I’m #1 of the 7!

Mary said she’ll leave WV about 9am…she should arrive here in NC

sometime about 5-6pm tonight.

Depending on traffic, she should be here at the time stated above!

Prayers for Traveling mercies! Thank you!!


Until the next Post…Blessings and Hope to all of you!

  1. Great Washi tape – perfect for your card. I like how your sentiment is completed by the message inside. This is a very nice uplifting card. Chantell Just Add Ink

  2. I love how you have carried your anchor theme through all your card elements. It’s a great card for a seaside lover! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week. Kim
