QKR ~ At Sea

Hi Crafting Friends.   It is time for another QKR Stampede challenge.  This week the theme is at sea.   Nautical is one of my favorite types of cards to make.  I thought this Manatee was pretty cute.  The QKR image is called " Sailor" and it is #6701 in the QKR store.

I added netting, cheesecloth and seaweed (Spanish Moss)  around the porthole.  The white piece of cardstock is embossed with anchors, although it does not show up well in the photo.

I hope you will come over to the blog and join us for the challenge and to see the other team mates cards.  These gals are very creative.

Do you all have a big weekend planned?  We will hopefully be racing unless we get rained out.  We have had a lot of rain lately so I won't be surprised if there is a rain out.  Whatever you decide to do,  I hope you have fun and stay safe.

Thank you, for coming over to view my blog today.

P.S.   I have more blog candy coming soon.  Stay tuned for more information.

  4. Absolutely in love with the image and how you have shown him off, such gorgeous detail.

  5. Oh my word this is absolutely ADORABLE!! I just love your wonderful texture with the cheesecloth and your coloring is super awesome too!! :) TFS!!

  6. What a marvelous Manatee!! So clever of you to frame him with the porthole and surround it with seaweed, netting and the stars and bling! I do see the anchors on the other panel and it really makes all the nautical feel come through - Manatee on the port (or is that starboard?) side of the boat!! Way to go!

  7. I'd like to be out at sea looking through the porthole at the adorable manatee. Wonderful and adorable card and he makes me smile.

  8. This couldn't be cuter with that little sailor manatee and the details you added make it even more fun. I especially love that netting and moss for texture. This is a real winner!

  9. A manatee in a sailor suit ... can you think of anything cuter! Fab card, Shirley.
