By Sea As By Land

Hello friends.  First of all, I've added a new addition to the household!  Yep, Corey is now living inside!  Well, he's living in my bedroom.  I had to see how all the kitties were going to react to each other.  So far so good. In fact I even let Casper in for a visit this morning and they did just fine.  I know that he wants to come out, but can't do that just yet.  If he's going to be indoors, I'll have him declawed. I also need to wean him to the new indoor kitty food.
That's Casper checkout out the litter box and Corey trying to figure out what he's doing.  Casper is about twice the size of Corey.

I do have a card to share.  On Splitcoast Stampers, I belong to the Monthly Challenge group and each month one of us sends out a swap to the other members and we all make cards out of what was sent.  We're allowed to add our own supplies if we choose to do so.  This month our sender was VikkiJo.  And would you believe - not a Copic Marker was used or harmed in the making of this card.  LOL!

All the pieces except the sentiment were stamped and sent by Vikki Jo.  I used a piece of  Stampin Up Night of Navy cardstock for the base of my card.  The sentiment is one I found on the internet and printed it off using Dark Blue.  The little strip under the ship was cut off the short end of the pattern paper so it would fit and I hated to waste it so I just slapped it down there and liked the way it looked.  That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by!

I am submitting this for the following challenges:

Mark's Finest Papers Inspiration Challenge -Dresses
Heck of a Challenge - The Sea
The Crafter's Cafe - Anything Goes
