Anchored in Uncharted Territory

Wow – yesterday was a crazy day!  It was good – but busy – just like Friday.  Seems to be a pattern with my life lately!  We had the second stamp club meet, and then Mike & I went to an open house in Strasburg.  One of our contractor friends bought an old Victorian home that was scheduled for demolition and totally restored it.  I hadn't seen it since it was finished, and, WOW!  – what a miracle those guys performed.  Quality Electric Company (i.e. – us!!) did the wiring, and I must say, it was lovely.  You can see "after" pictures here

The rain was crazy, and we were soaked after the open house, so we went to our favorite hangout for our weekly burger fix.   After catching up on all the things I had missed by being gone all day, it was about midnight before I got a chance to stamp.  But I had a great  idea for the Nautical Expedition designer paper and The Open Sea set in the summer mini catalog.

I stamped the compass and anchor in Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy on the designer paper.  Then I stamped the passenger list in Crumb Cake on Whisper White, and the ship over that in Basic Gray.  I colored the ship with ink pads and a blender pen.  Neat, huh?  The sentiment from "Uncharted Territory" just seemed to fit this card. 

I have all the taxes I'm responsible for done (yay!!) and now I'm putting finishing touches on the My Digital Studio class.  I think this class will be a lot of fun! I'm going to see if I can hook my laptop into the television at the office.  The TV is rather old, so it may not work, but my computer guy (Wesley) will be with me for a little while tomorrow, so I'm going to see if he can figure it out.  If it can be done, Wes can do it!

Here are the supplies.  Thanks for stopping in, and I hope you're enjoying this lovely day!
