Welcome to my two new followers, Marina whose blog is 'My Perfect Life' and Kath of Handmade by Kath

I was lucky enough to have a few new dies for Christmas, including the Memory Box 'Marina Sailboats'.

The yachts come in two different sizes in the set and this is the largest one.  There are also two different wave dies. I made up the scene, then die cut using a Memory Box Stitched Hexagon die.  I used a Sheena Douglass 'Water Ripple' embossing folder for the background, which I mounted on a red card blank.  The computer generated sentiment was die cut using a Memory Box Stitched Rectangle die.  Two punched anchors finished off my card.  Lot of snippets were used on this card, so I'll be off to share my card in the Playground.


  1. This is so gorgeous!! I love the boat and waves!! The rippling water background looks amazing!! Have a great day :)

  3. Hi Liz! I love the fun scene you created. Those dies are awesome,too. I have been wanting the MB sailboat for awhile too!

  4. Really fun card Liz! I thought I'd got away with yearning for the dies - then I spotted the background embossing folder - sigh! It's just so perfect for the scene you created.

    By the way, this is the URL to Kath's blog:
