Time Out #38

I'm totally taken by these darling glasses in the Time Out #38 inspiration photo this week:

 
The stripes caught my eye, the lifesavers are darling, but I was drawn right in by those cute little silver anchors...  I think you'll know why when you see the cute little anchor from #Hero Arts' Stamp & Cut Anchor, the lifesavers -white heat-embossed- from #SSS Sailing and their Tiny Tag dies.
 
How can a girl go wrong with a striped anchor?
Does anyone need help with the inside sentiment?
I didn't think so.
 
Sorry about the late visit ... we had such a great sleepover with this little munchkin who helped her Grampy watch our first butterfly take its maiden flight!
 
Grampy and Drew
Memories are made of this!
 
Thanks for dropping anchor at my dock today!  Always a pleasure!

Oooh!! Love that pic of Grampy with his grand-daughter! How special! She is such a cutie!! Loving that striped anchor too! And speaking of anchors, the one that was dropped at my dock has finally been raised and its owner has set sail for sunnier shores. Let's see how long it takes..., if you get my drift (wink!) xx

Your granddaughter is such a cutie-pie, and she looks so happy sitting on her grampy's lap!
I love, love, love how you stamped your background, Michele! It really makes your striped anchor pop, and your bold red banner is the perfect touch! Gorgeous card, as always!

I love the texture those clear / white embossed lifesaver rings add. Such a fun color palette for summer. Wish I was sailin'
