An Anchor for the Soul

Some say your heart anchors the soul and some say hope anchors the soul, either way I like the sentiment. That is the thought that inspired my card this week for Top Dog Dies.




This creation uses the Top Dog Dies Heart Border Die, which is so fun and delicate.  I love this die used in velum as I did here.  It is a little bit hard to see here but If you look at the banner behind the lighthouse you'll notice it.  Isn't it lovely?  Well thinking of the heart, and anchors and lighthouses got me all worked up!  I love this color combo from the Summer Adventure collection from Echo Park Paper. The stamps are from Lawn Fawn and the Anchor from Studio Calico. Remember the blog hop that Authentique did with Top Dog Dies- well that is where I got that sticker, too perfect!

Speaking of anchors, one of mine is crafting.  I did quite a bit when I made this card and it made me feel rejuvenated!  So how's about telling me what your anchor in life is?  There can be more than one, feel free to tell all! ;)

Thank you as always for stopping, I feel so lucky when you do!

Amazing card in every way! I've recently developed a 'thing' for anchors, so your card is serving as yet more inspiration! Anchors in my life: my husband, my family, my card-making, and, of course, the support and encouragement of this warm, welcoming community! And YOU, too, are an anchor: your cards, your posts and your comments bring me immense joy!! Hugs~c
