Ahoy Amelia

I just cannot believe how quickly a half a year has passed! I started out in January, and now it's already June, the final month for me to inspire at The Greeting Farm. It has been a blast, I must tell you. It feels like I've learned so much.
Thank you all, for leaving such lovely comments and feedback.  I hope you do come back to the blog of The Greeting Farm, because I'm sure the'll be up for something funky pretty soon :-)!


And with the warm winds blowing here in Sweden, I feel inspired to work with a nautical theme. I just fell in love with both Oliver and Amelia in the Ahoy set, and I cannot get enough of them!. They sure are some cute puppies :-).

It seems like I haven't overcome my love for corrugated paper either :-). I think that corrugated paper gives a nice touch to just any project!

I couldn't have been happier to have come up with an idea to use small bottles on cards or altered things. And when I saw this wonderful little bottle, my heart skipped a beat. I stamped on a piece of paper with a text stamp and inked the edges before rollling it up and glueing the bottle down to the card.

I started working with this super cute Amelia from the Ahoy set. I coloured her in and decided on keeping her marine looking. I've also punched out two borders with a sea theme. I've also die cut a big gadget gear to put behind the month and date stamp.
Do you see the little cute seagull there?

And just to emphasize, I also put a post card stamp in the background... Just to give the feel of snail mail.

I've used a spotchy stamp to dirty the paper up.

All the best to all of you!
