Time To Celebrate



Another 'guy' birthday card. The stamp I used on this card is one of the first stamps I bought years ago. I love anything to do with the ocean and I thought this stamp would work nice with the seascapes stamps I already had. It is still a favorite 'go to' stamp for me. I colored this image with  colored pencils. The circle sentiment had flowers in the center so I just cut them out. I thought it made the sentiment look like a life saver tube. (Is that the correct name for them?) a little hemp and some copper eyelets and my card was finished.
I hope your month is shaping up to a wonderful start  to 2014. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:


My Song: My Anchor Holds
  1. Though the angry surges roll
    On my tempest-driven soul,
    I am peaceful, for I know,
    Wildly though the winds may blow,
    I’ve an anchor safe and sure,
    That can evermore endure.
    • Blow your wildest, then, O gale,
      On my bark so small and frail;
      By His grace I shall not fail,
      For my anchor holds, my anchor holds.
  2. And it holds, my anchor holds:

A wonderful card! Love the image and it is making me realize that I need to be working on a couple of cards for men myself. Hope you are experiencing sunny days!
