Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home for the Happy Inkin” Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we had a sketch challenge and I decided to use the “Sailing Home” stamp set and dies.  Can I say, I LOVE this set!  There are so many possibilities with all the stamps and dies include in this suite.  I’m so happy to have another option to make more cards that suit the gentlemen in our lives too.  Enjoy the hop today and happy stamping.

Here is the sketch:
