Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit - Lifesaver Card and GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

I hope your week has been going well. Mine's been a little crazy with a 35 hour whirl wind trip to Montreal with my sister to watch the Canadians and Netherlands women's FIFA soccer game. I'm Canadian with Dutch roots and wasn't sure who I wanted to win so I was happy with the tied game. ;) Yesterday was dentist appointments. Today my kids play soccer (if the thunderstorms hold out) and I'm bring dinner to my sister's place where my parents will be spending the night as they move an hour closer to us today/tomorrow. Tomorrow we have a wedding to attend and Saturday are expecting a visit from my sister-in-law and her family. Busy, busy. 


Anyways, enough about me. You're probably here to see something made using the Simon Says Stamp's July 2015 Card Kit: Sail Away With Me? ;) 



If you missed my first post HERE IT IS. I didn't use the sailing theme at all for that card but promised to do so later this week. So here I am!

And here's today's card:


I was inspired by the Authentique Seaside patterned paper with the seashells and coral sitting at the bottom of the ocean. I thought it would be the perfect place for my Simon Says Stamp die cut sailboat to drop a Maya Road anchor (held together by some of the May Arts Natural Twine that also came in July's kit). The wavy seas were created with the help of Simon's Stitched Slopes and Hills Dies. I finished things off with a stamped cloud and sentiment from Simon's new Sailing Stamp Set. 

Supplies:



You can pick up the Simon Says Stamp July 2015 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
