Bye ... Bye ...

Hello Friends!
Do you love Crafty Secrets products as much as I do?  
Such a beautiful variety of images, papers, sticker, and ephemera that your creativity can go crazy!!  Pop over to the Crafty Vintage Girl Store to see what strikes your fancy!
FABULOUS sales going on now too ... you don't want to miss out!

How about this sweet creation that would be just perfect for a friend who is headed out on an ocean cruise.  The perfect card to wish them well on their journey!

The Crafty Secrets products used on today's card are images from the Crafty Secrets 'TRAVEL' Creative Scraps and Radiant Digital Paper. 

I've added a few die cuts to give that 'ocean voyage' feel, to go along with these sweet vintage images.  A little distressing on the ship image and repurposing of the pieces that came out of the Memory Box 'Box Splash Border' #98438 helped add a little extra texture.  And I just love this Anchors Away die from Spellbinders in'spire collection.

I hope you've found inspiration in today's card and will pop over to the Crafty Secrets store to see what fabulous products are just waiting for YOU!
OH and DON'T FORGET ... we have a MONTHLY LINKY PARTY the 1st Monday of Each Month that we'd love to have you come play in.  EVERYONE'S a winner on this challenge ... check out all the details on our Crafty Secrets Blog.  And if it's inspiration you need ... this team is AMAZING and SURE to inspire, no matter what your style!
