Happy Tuesday All!!! When you see this post, I will be away on vacation. I have prescheduled this post. This week's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge was so fun and when I saw it, I immediately thought it would be great for a masculine card (which I don't make too frequently). I used the Winds of Grace set from SU which is now retired. The dp is from The Nines Specialty Paper and Sweet Slumber in the SU catalog. The image is watercolored. While I usually sew on a lot of my cards, this one is not sewn. We have been having a lot of power outages lately( this is the one Kathy) and since I was preparing for vacation, I did not have the time to hand sew it.
For all the details on the prizes and awards won this week, please visit Priscilla's Blog. I now there is not just one but two blog candy prizes this week along with the Midnight Madness Mad Money Piggy Bank Give away and the bonus prize. I hope you are inspired by this creation, but for more inspiration, visit my dt sisters: Carolynn, Charlotte, Denise, Jane, Jeni, Jessica, Kimmie, Michelle, Phyllis, Priscilla, Shawne, Sonya, and Sue. If you do create a card or project using this sketch, please leave a direct link to your creation here. If you upload to SC please use the keyword MMSC9. I have so enjoyed all the awesome creations with these sketches!
Have a great day!! Tomorrow I will be back with the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge! Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments!
blessings,
Chris

Chris, I hope you are having a wonderful and fun vacation!
Your card reminds me of the boats I see when we are out on the ocean, they always seem so tranquil and serene gently gliding on the water. The coloring is just perfect for this stamp which you coordinated so well with the papers. Details of course are perfect, as always. Just lovely!
Hugs,
Charlotte
