Let's Set Sail Bendi Card

Welcome to the Trip Achievers Blog Hop.  I am so honoured to be participating in this Blog Hop and I am so thankful for the support I received from my Customers and Team Members so that I could achieve this trip**!  Thank you so much!

I created this fun Bendi fold card featuring the Stampin' Up! Let's Set Sail Bundle for World Card Making Day.  I had fun creating a sailing scene for my husband's birthday card.  If you follow me, you may know that we sailed for many years in the Canadian Gulf Island on the West Coast.  We don't have a boat any more, but we both still remember the fun we had.

Isn't this a fun card!
