I loved this week's sketch so much I had 2 ideas. Here is the second one:
Once again I went for a masculine theme. And these stamps are again from the upcoming SU! summer mini (a set called The Open Seas) ...
I love the nautical theme. It seems to be big for the summer and I for one couldn't be happier.
I was actually inspired to make this card by my late grandfather. He died when I was a toddler, so I don't know a lot about him. But I do know he was born in Scotland of Irish immigrant parents (my great-grands left Ireland during the potato famine)
My grandfather came to America in the late 1890s. Through the Ellis Island Foundation, I've seen a picture of the ship he came over on and a copy of the ships log that he signed when he boarded.
The log stamp in this set brought back that memory
Thanks for stopping by!
