Greatness ...

I do love Viva Las Vegas stamps, there is always just the right one for every occasion.

I was tasked with making a card for our school Principal, he is retiring in a few weeks time. I have quite a high opinion of this man, he has done a great job at school and is a Shakespeare fan. I searched for the perfect quote and coupled it with Boy in tug boat :

Isn't that great how they came together. The background is dylusions sprays. I typed the quote onto the colored paper - boy was that nerve wracking ! LOL But phew (wipes bow), no mistakes. The boy in tug boat is stamped in black versamark and embossed in clear. I fussy cut him and added him on top in black and white, I loved the contrast.

I am entering this for the VLVS challenge, I did quite a few of the things to be able to enter this for the challenge:  dots, letters, scribbles, sprays, the colors are right etc. I didn't include anything winged, but the meaning of this really is to take flight, moving onto the next chapter of life :)

I used my sea bubbles stamp fro Designs by Ryn also, I love how the boat is floating on the bubbles. I stamped it in blue sapphire and added some white gel pen details. I am also entering this card into Ryns monthly challenge, anything goes challenge :)

I had made another very similar card too, which I will enter into the challenges.
Thanks for stopping by :) Nikki x


  1. Hey Nikki! Great to hear from you again. Hope life has been going well for you :) Just love how you used only the bubbles to create a sense of water. Pairs well with the boy in the boat and gives both pieces a whimsical feel. Love it! I'm sure the principal will be very touched.

  2. P.S. I wanted to add these to my Customer board on Pinterest but for some reason I couldn't pin from your blog. Might be because I'm on an iPad...

    1. Hi Ryn, I do have the Pinterest Pin here, so you should be able to pin it from here, maybe not on an ipad though. Thanks for the lovely comment x
