Good Morning Everyone!
I hope everyone is doing well - or as well as can be expected in times like these. I'll be honest. I've been struggling. I had a panic attack about 30 years ago - it was just one and never happened again. I couldn't tell you why it happened and never really thought much about it but with the Covid-19 virus I've been having panic attacks and lots of them. I've only shared this with a few people but thought I would share it here because I'm probably not the only one struggling in one way or another. I have someone to talk to about them and that makes it better. If you're struggling, please open up to someone - it helps.

Okay, let's talk about this card now. Have you all got your FREE download yet?

I grew up near the ocean but haven't lived near it for about 26 years now and there are times I really miss it. If I was struggling with something I would often drive out to the ocean, walk and think and I always felt better after. So I decided to make an ocean themed card with the FREE download.
I stamped the anchor is It's a Boy ink and cut it with the tag from from the Tags Etc Dies. I stamped the ocean foliage (is that the correct term) and fish onto a 4 x 5 1/4" panel. I lined up the tag with the panel and stamped a little portion of the image onto it - it doesn't match up perfectly but I'm okay with that. 
I adhered the tag onto the panel with craft foam and then adhered that to a card base.

If you have any questions about how I made this card or any of the product I used please leave me a comment below and I will respond. 
If you are struggling and need someone to talk to, please reach out to a friend or family member and if you're not comfortable doing that, there are toll-free numbers to call. It helps.

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!

Stay safe everyone!!
