I have really had fun making myself work with LOTS of patterned paper. Even several weeks ago I don't think I could have pulled this off but it seems to be clicking this week. This card was inspired by the fact that my hubby and I leave today for a CRUISE!! white sand beaches and sunny days here we COME!!!

I love the little boy in this paper. Friend is stamped on the PTI double ended banner die and the sweet ship is Verve's Text Objects paper pieced.

I like the friendship quote stamped on the yellow floral. "There are big ships and small ships. But the best ship of all is friendship. Friendship is the golden thread that ties the heart of all the world". - John Evelyn

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! If blogger cooperates I have a few scheduled posts for next week! ~Rhonda
