Karolyn Blog Hop Nauticool
I’m sharing a sneak of one of the new stamp sets called Wicked Nauticool.  It has some really great nautical images, as well as coordinating dies.  I’ve featured the anchor from the set, as well as one of the sentiments.  The sailboat was created using the Sailboat die from last month’s release.
Well, that’s it for me kids.  I’ll be back in just a bit to share this week’s CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge.  Thanks for stopping by!
