You Float My Boat, Award Thanks and Guest Designer Spot!

 Click HERE to enter my 500 follower Cricut cart giveaway!

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day! I have a card to enter into a few challenges today and I need to thank some crafty friends as well!
For this card I used paper from K&Company. I cut the sail boat from Life's a beach at 4 1/2". I embossed the bottom of the boat and the flag with Swiss Dots and the sails with Seeing Spots. I attached the layers with foam dots to give the boat dimension. I cut the waves from Pack Your Bags, and I cut them three times, embossed them with the Swirls folder and attached each layer with foam dots. The sun is from Life's a Beach and I cut it twice and attached it with foam. The awesome quote is from K Andrew Design's Splashtastic Summer set. Proceeds from the sale of this stamp set benefits the Autism Research Institute. Click HERE to purchase your own set! I inked the edges with walnut Distress Ink and added a crystal with my iRock.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  • Die Cutting Divas Challenge #23 - Summer Fun
  • GAB Challenge #24  - Use a new product (my new K Andrew Splashtastic stamps)
  • Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - Use a Quote
  • More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday #44 - Fun in the Sun
  • Paper Cutz Challenge #100 - Anything in the Sky
I also want to thank two awesome crafters for gifting me with blog awards! I want to sincerely thank Janice of Cricutology for passing along the Stinkin Cute Blogger award to me!
I also want to sincerely thank Crystal of Crystal's Creative Escape for passing along the A Thing of Beauty and Irresistibly Sweet Blogger awards to me!
Janice and Crystal are both so amazingly talented and so inspiring and I absolutely love visiting their blogs! Please stop by and check them out - you will love visiting them, too! Thanks so much Janice and Crystal! I am so honored and appreciative!

Also, please be sure to stop by Cooking With Cricut on Tuesday - I will be the guest designer!
Thanks so much for dropping by today! Have a great evening :)

  29. Love it Lisa! It reminds me of a song.."come sail away", remember that one? I love Kristal's stamps though. I have to get me some of those! I like how you used the differant size dots for embossing. It gives it a very clean look. Good luck in the challenges! I may check out the GAB one, maybe enter my magnetic board? Oh, sorry we didn't win at C&L....perhaps next time huh? :)
