  1. Wouldn’t it be nice to be out on the lake these last few days. You did a great job with your color selections of making us aware that it’s summer, but how cool and inviting the water is. Your coloring was outstanding. You can just see and feel the wind in the sail. The burlap was a nice added touch.

  2. Randy said it all !!! I really like the burlap behind the sailboat. It just completes the card.But, Where is the orange ???? Maybe the sail has a tinge of orange. Looks great !!!

  3. Awesome job of coloring and designing this card! Really like how the netting stuff helped to tie into the boat theme and make the card even more awesome:)

  4. Beautiful job Myrna! I love the colors you chose and your beautiful coloring! I also love the bit of texture you added with the fabric. Beautiful work! hugs, Angela

  5. This is fabulous Myrna – I love this image and might just have to hop across and see if the stamp might just jump into my shopping cart !!!!! Your colouring is awesome and I really love the colour scheme you chose. The scrap of hessian is a perfect addition and I’m loving those scroll banners.

  6. Pretty and bright background Myrna. Lovely card and the coloring work on this image is so sweet. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  7. Hi Myrna!

    Your Sailboat of Dreams is so soft and so beautiful! You did a fabulous job girl! Looking at it just makes me feel relaxed 🙂


  8. A wonderful card with the perfect colors for summer! Great coloring too. ;D

  9. I would title this, “the ultimate Summer day”! Wait, I was the one laying in the bottom of the boat, reading a book! lol Fabulous card Myrna!

  10. AHHHHH!!! Instantly made me want to pull out our pontoon and get out on the water ASAP!! Your card is Magnificent Myrna!! The colors are perfect and really set the atmosphere for a relaxing, fun day of sailing and being carefree. Of course, the sailboat pattern is a masterpiece and the hessian piece gives your card the perfect touch! Your choice of colors just instantly took my breath away and that little girl is adorable with her dark blue top to contrast the other blue shades. Here’s hoping the weather warms up around here and we can get out on the water on Wall Lake. It’s about 10 minutes from our new house! Hope to see some sailboats as cool as yours out there this summer!
