The Best Ship is Friendship

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) I hope you are having a wonderful week! I'm so swamped at work this week, but I've been making myself come home and relax a bit and do some crafting (it helps me unwind :) ). Hubby and I have also been watching re-runs of The Office when we have a spare minute, which is one of my favorite shows and always makes me laugh out loud (LOVE that show!) :) Anyway, onto my card for today.

I decided to create another card for today using an SVG file and my Silhouette. I purchased the SVG file from Treasure Box Designs (Yo Ho Ho set). I then downloaded the file into Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) version 3.0 (this is the only version you can use with your Silhouette, it's the newest version and the only one available for purchase). After I downloaded it into SCAL, I imported the ship image and the girl pirate image, sized everything the way I wanted it, placed my paper on my mat, and cut. After I cut everything out, I inked around the edges, ran the girl's dress through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder, and then did some doodling with my white and black gel pens. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME (My Mind's Eye). The sentiment (isn't it perfect with these images?!?!) is from Scrappy Moms Stamps (Sun Kissed set). What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I'm working on some larger projects to share at the end of the week so stay tuned. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow, probably with another Cricut project. Hugs!

You are amazing with the doodling. I need to practice. My lines never look right. Your card is super fun.
