Shore do love you

Hi there, well what a fun week I have had. I have been traveling about Maine and my trip is just about to come to an end. Boo Hoo!  I don't want to leave but I miss my family and my fur babies, so I must.

Today, the Tombow team is blog hopping with Trixie Hulm

For me, this card could be used for so many reasons.  I could give it to the sweetest girls on earth (that is you Joy and Debbie) for inviting me on this adventure.  It could be for the new friends I have met. It could be for my amazing hubby who encourages me to take a little "girl time", it could be for my sister and her husband who get up at the crack of dawn to shuttle me to the airport (again) or maybe it is just for the State of Maine, because I have hopelessly fallen in love with you.


I started with a white card base which I embossed with a dot embossing folder and then used Tombow Dots Adhesive to layer the dark blue and red cardstock layers down.  The Dots adhesive is great for adhering layers where texture is involved. I stamped the images and sentiment with Chipped Sapphire Distress ink and then fussy cut the anchor and attached to the card with a Tombow Power Tab that I cut to fit the back of the anchor.  The banner flags were adhered to the card with a bit more of the Tombow Dots Adhesive and then I used a wee bit of Tombow Mono Multi to attach the sweet little red glittery heart.This will be the lineup:

Jennie:
Marie:



Well, I am going to send you on your way to Jennie's blog, Don't forget to comment along the way for your chance to win this great prize:


The winner will be announced
Friday June 21th  at 3:30 Eastern

Time.

What a fun card. I always envy those that can "fussy" cut the images they stamp so beautifully. I guess is need a lot more practice. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, Melissa, this is amazing! I love your card and I'm so bummed too that we weren't able to get together. I can't tell you how close you were to me while in BoothBay and still we didn't connect....I'm thrilled that you loved Maine and are planning to come back. We will certainly not miss another opportunity. Do come back!!!! Hugs.
