Sailing Away

Happy Monday! I had an awesome weekend! The Eagles' concert was absolutely wonderful! Those guys can really jam! We didn't get many really good pictures but here's one of the guys playing their hearts out.

We had a blast! Can't wait for the next tour! LOL! We were the first and second seats in row 13 in the middle aisle. Great seats for the show. And what a show it was!

Two cards for you tonight. More birthday since that's what I need a bunch of this month. The first up was done with a Gina K Summer Stamp Kit from several years ago. I used the sailboat to create this summer scene.


The sail is paper pieced. I colored the boat and sponged the background clouds. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. Just a really easy birthday card.

I am entering this card into these challenges:
My second card is yet another birthday card; big surprise! This one I sent to my DH's nephew for his birthday this week.
The image and sentiment is from the Saddle Up Color Plus stamp set by Doodle Pantry. I used one of the pre-colored  images in the set but they come in outline too so you can color them as you please. The background paper is Basic Grey. I used Spellbinders Circles to cut out the image and Clear Dollar Stamp dies to cut out the sentiment. I am entering this card in the Paper Makeup Stamp challenge of anything goes.

Don't forget to enter the Doodle Pantry challenge this month. You have until July 24th. The only requirement is to use a Doodle Pantry image and Laurie has some really nice freebies on the web site. And if you participate in the challenge you get a free set. This month it's the Holiday sentiment set. Just in time for those Christmas in July cards. And you could win an additional gift certificate! Hope to see your card in the challenge!

Well that's it for tonight. I have to go see if I can get some more birthday cards done. July is a never ending battle of birthdays! I hope your week is off to an awesome start! Thanks for stopping by and making me a part of your week! Much appreciated!

I just love that horse and love the card you made with him/her! I saw the Eagles in their early days at a concert at our college...back in the days! They were great then and my DH and I continue to enjoy their music. Lucky you to see them in concert and to get such close up seats. We are going to see the "Jersey Boys" this weekend.
