Don't you just love it when inspiration hits you like a brick? That is exactly what happened with me when I read the saying that I used on this card! Every now and then, when someone in my life is going through a difficult time, I like to give them a card to let them know that I care and hopefully lift them up a bit. I think that this saying is just perfect for such an occasion.
Since I did not make this for anyone in paticular, I wanted to use a neutral color palette so that it can be given to a man or a woman when it is needed. The saying of course just shouted "Nautical Theme!!!", so I turned to the eCraft Sports Life SD card and found the anchor and the wheel (along with several other nautical type cuts) and then I paired it up with this wonderful frame from Laina Lamb's Office Essentials SD card. There is a whole category for frames on the card! The wheel was stamped with Papertrey Ink's Woodgrain stamp set, and the background was impressed with the coordinating Impression Plate. A little jute twine completed the look!
