Let's Get Naught-y! (Nautical)

LOL!  Don't expect to see naughty images on this blog post!  This is all about getting "Nautical."  I was invited to join the Sisterhood of the Traveling Cards continuing swap group on SCS. Great bunch of ladies. We make cards on a 2-month schedule so you only have 6 per year and you only need to send in 6 cards and get 5 back. For January/February, our Hostess was MiamiKel4 (Kelly) and here is what she gave us to work with --

Since most of you know my obsessive love of the ocean, and to get you out of your cold months and winter snow, let's create cards with a nautical theme! Think lighthouses, sailboats, anchors, maps and more, let your creativity flow and your heart 'sail' ♥

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain

Sets your sails creating and I 'shore' can't wait to see your cards!
♥ ~Kelly
