100th Blog Post and a 'By the Tide' Masculine Card

Just realized this is my 100th blog post! Wow! Crazy how fast time flies... I love blogging. It has become a great addition to my hobby. Some days it can be hard to keep up with a daily blog (so this may change in the future to every other day, or something like that), but for now it works out great. I love participating in card challenges and blogging is a great way to do that. It really motivates me to build up my stock of cards/projects. Thanks to all my followers for reading my blurbs everyday! Hope you have been, and continue to be, inspired by my cards/projects! If you'd like to follow me on Pinterest, click here. I've created a board for all the cards I've posted in this blog.

For today's post, I created a masculine card using the new Sweet Sunday sketch. It's a great sketch with lots of layers!

I pulled out a new stamp set called "By the Tide". I love anything to do with the beach/ocean, so I just had to get this stamp set! I stamped the coral image in Crumb Cake and popped up a stamped fish that I cut out. Striped navy ribbon layers the bottom half of the card. I'm starting to love Midnight Muse -- it's a nice deep blue and is perfect for masculine cards!


I love how detailed the fish stamp is! It really stands out against the light Crumb Cake.

Thanks for stopping by! Make sure to come back tomorrow for a new KCRR challenge!
