You Are My Anchor

Hello crafters!  I started by embossing a piece of white card with the Bubble Burst Embossing folder.  Next, I cut the You Are My Anchor Frame in tan, silver, green and amethyst.  I cut the shadow backing in white and glued the tan frame to it.  I nipped away the anchor from the silver die cut and glued it on top of the tan base piece.  I cut the seaweed from the green one, and the sponge from the amethyst die cut.  I added the starfish out of taupe card.  I cut the You Are My Anchor sentiment out of black and seated it in the braided oval ut in tan and attached to the shadow backing piece.  I used the Clipped Corner Rectangles and made a frame to go around everything.  The card was completed with white and black mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8 1/4"  in size.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all blog friends from the precious little 2 person old 1800 cottage in the middle of a working farm with the countryside sun streaming down.
If there is nothing else to say about this under the sea collection at least I can say these expression and sentiments are extremely heart felt. I'm a real lover of your 'hobby/interest' dies such as the garden etc and I'm having to really stretch my brain and the florists are throwing "what about" and think about" words at me left right and centre so out of the box is an understatement I'm thinking. Anyway I'm putting my withered brain cell away for this week, it's all about Particraft and lambs and possibly lighthouses this week lol.
Sending love to all my blog anchors this Saturday please keep safe and well xxx said...

Good Morning Sue. Ohhh Sue what are you doing to me. I have loved looking at your underwater and oceanic cards ... they have all been lovely ... But unfortunately, and please don't be offended ... they are not for me. Then all of a sudden ... BOOM ... You throw todays post at me and knock me off my feet. I just love this one for the men in our lives. It has the Naval effect that I like. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.
Stay safe and well 🙏.
