You're My Anchor

I spent the entire winter - 13 weeks - in a wheelchair recuperating from a fractured hip. It was a difficult season of my life I will never forget, but I will also never forget the tremendous love and care I received from my wonderful husband.  He always had a way to keep my spirits up and truly was MY ANCHOR!

The staring brad in this card is of course, the Anchor Brad, which I threaded with a little twine and "sunk" it into the sand in the bottom of the sea.  The "sand" is actually sandpaper!

The fish swimming in my ocean are so life-like in their color and detail!  These are just one of the sets of fish brads available in Eyelet Outlet's Ocean Brads Collection.

In the sandy corners of my card are some of Eyelet Outlet's gorgeous shell brads and shell corner brads.
