Good Luck...

Since my husband retired from the Navy after 20 years, I still find it hard not to get him "nautical" things. He doesn't mind though... he's very supportive of our troops and our country. One thing I learned from him was that anchors are a symbol of good luck. In fact, to this day, he wears a mariner's cross around his neck. Simply put.. it's an anchor with a crucifix on it. Always protects him and brings him good luck. THAT is important to me since he now drives semi for the post office and I worry about him traveling every night. He tells me, "Don't worry... I'm a professional... this is what I do!" LOL Ya ya... still... anything that keeps him safe is good by me! I made this a while back for a sketch challenge over on StampTV. I LOVE the new Nautical Netting at Gina K Designs. It's perfect for beach, water, or sea images and for most any type of "manly" card. I never did much with the inside of my cards until I got hooked on Jessica Fick's blog and now I almost NEVER do a card without prettying (is that a word?) up my inside. Hee Hee The stamp set is from Rupa Shevde's new "Guiding Light" set also available at Gina K Designs, of course!!! Have a safe and lucky day!! Signature

Tina,
This is perfect for a masculine card! Don't you love the netting?
I also like to finish the insides of my cards but quite often forget to get a picture of it.

This is so good and I love everything about it. My guy was in the navy also. He was in the Seebees and did two deployments in Vietam. Geri

Yea for Jessica! She inspired me also to do the "prettying up" thing!

What a nice card, Tina! I love the inside of your card - thanks for the shout out!

Tell your husband thankyou for his service. My Brad was in the army - gotta love our military guys, huh?
