Just Us Girls Challenge #594~Photo Week....LOVE You (Concord & 9th)

Hello

Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #594, where our lovely Nancy has selected this quartet of nautical-themed images as this week's photo inspiration. From stripes, to colours, to 'sea' objects/creatures, to LOVE...the possibilities are many!


Chrissie Stokes joins us once again as our July guest designer; she and the rest of the team have created fabulous cards (as always!). I'm sure you'll whate-y LOVE what you 'sea'!

Okay...enough of my feeble attempts at punniness! Despite my rather *ahem* extensive paper collection, I couldn't find any with navy or red stripes, and I didn't want to take a risk in creating my own with cardstock, knowing full well they'd wind up wonky. I also don't have a cutie-pie whale or anchor or compass either. As you can see, my initial response was to go literal. The absence of required products to do that meant putting Plan B into play...which is what you see below.  Square + LOVE, both of which are clearly evident in the photo. Changed the colours, added a 'you'...and done! 


That's it from me; looking forward to how this photo inspires you (nautical or not!)

Thank you for dropping by!

Isn't that always the way, with all the stuff we collect, invariably we are missing that item or theme we want to use. Humphf!! Great literal interpretation. It's a very pretty card!

Carol, I must say that I adore the direction you took on your card as I really love those letter dies. The font is amazing! However, I did find it surprising that out of all the fabulous dies and stamps you own, you don't have a nautical type die or whale to be found. LOL, I can tell you one thing, I do not own any postal-shaped dies and I am off to go see what I can find to make that right! Honestly, a great card!

I, ahem, LOVE those giant die cut letters! This definitely works for the inspiration, and makes a gorgeous card!

Fabulous! I love that big square LOVE with the little you gracing it. I think it is absolutely perfect for our challenge!

Gorgeous card Carol. Love the big love die and how you added the you in black. So very pretty in pink.

What a lovely design, Carol! I love how you layered the white "Love" and the black "You".
