Cardabilities Reveal

Happy Tuesday! I have another card to share today for the Cardabilities reveal. Karan Gerber has done it again creating another fabulous sketch ...
I just got my hands on some Graphic 45 By The Sea papers and was dying to play with them. Here is my take on the sketch...

The wood veneer anchor is from Creative Embellishments. They have a fabulous selection of chipboard and wood products as well as stamps. I applied crackle paint to the anchor and then inked the edges when it was dry. I really love how it turned out.

The sentiment on this card made me think of my brother-in-law. My bother-in-law loves to be out in his boat in the summer. He is in a battle for his life against cancer since last August. Last week I found out he is having yet another surgery. Every time he thinks he is getting better, he has a drawback. I thought he could use some encouragement. He amazes me that through all of the pain, he has kept his sense of humor. I pray that this surgery will be his last and that he will be able to get out on his boat this summer.

I hope you will join us in our latest challenge. Be sure to check out the Cardabilities blog to see what the other fabulous designers have created.
