Sailing Home Masculine Idea

Hello Everyone ~ I have great Sailing Home Masculine Idea today.

Technology is still not my friend!  You would not believe what I went through yesterday. It began about 2:30 when my neighbor knocked on my door and asked if I had TV.  I did not and I lost my internet.  His Landscaper cut my fiber optic cable.  We called the cable company and they said they could come out on August 4th.  I told them that was a problem as I work from home.  She said they will see if someone can come out in the evening.

So I spent some time in my studio making some cards.  When I finished up I had to post that I was cancelling my Facebook Live as my cellular signal is not good so it would not be a good feed.  I then started to work on my post for today.  I went looking for the video for the card today.  I could not find it on my phone.  I even tried to see if I could recover it and that did not work.  So not sure if it didn’t record or if it got deleted.   So I just decided to work on my photos and edit them and download as I had a few to do.  That is when more issues arose.  My phone would not download my photos.  I did some research and I have to have WiFi to download.  I connect to my neighbors and thought everything would be fine.  Well I was wrong there.  I still could not download them.  I decided to try and download 1 at a time.  Well that worked and I then proceeded to download my photos 1 at a time.  A few would not download so I went back and reverted back to the original.  Then I could download them.  That meant I had to edit them after I got them downloaded.  As you can see technology was not good to me.  I am hoping today will be a better day in the area of technology!

Today’s card again uses the Greenery embossing folder.  I decided to use one to make a panel for the card front.  The lighthouse was stamped and then the bottom was embossed.  To add some interest I angle cut the panel.  The rest is pretty straight forward.  Here is my Sailing Home Masculine Idea.

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am hoping my cable gets repaired today but there is no guarantee.  I may have to make some adjustments if it doesn’t as it was freezing a lot.  Have a Fabulous Friday and did you like the angled cut for the panel on my Sailing Home Masculine Idea?



  1. Good Morning Robbie,
    The angle cut adds interest and depth to the card.
    Thank you for sharing and your time.
    On a side note Nascar is here this weekend 🙁 and I will have to pass this year due to the virus.
    Take care Lin

    • Thanks Lin! I loved the idea of the angled cut. May have to use it more often. So sad you have to pass on Nascar! Thanks for taking time to leave me a message.
