And so... if you possibly read my "other" blog post from today... You'd know I've been extremely busy... Who hasn't? and (at this point, you  really should be scrolling back up to the link... or scrolling down on my blog [to the previous post of the day] to see what the heck I'm talking about... hint, hint.. You'd ALSO know we were working on step-cards this month in A Year of Card Techniques. Whelpers... I loved it SO much, that I thought I'd do it for this one, too! Watch out friends and family... Step-Cards are my new favorite! Guess what kind of card you'll probably be getting...

I scored notice I'm still loving the blues? Especially since it' "like" summertime here (and everywhere) kinda oceanic... it... JUST like the video told me to!

And then... I over-sliced it with my paper trimmer. Be sure to follow the instructions!

And it folds... just like so! Love the aerial views...
A closer view... Loving these folds!!!

Created another "border" with my Explore Air... then chopped it up again... (obviously, it's a "ships ahoy!" theme, and I happened to be having a teacher I know leaving us... and setting sail! Whatever works, right?)

The view from above shows me my adhesive will make each fold stick... had to trim the ships' insides

And the ships kinda overlapped on folded waters. But that's ok! Right?
Ok... It now looks kinda cool from the aerial view. I like it!


Added sentiment... Simple. Again...

And there she blows! Super Duper SIMPLE! And easy. Look, Ma! No Ink!!! All set for a teacher who's going away! to have a blast and leave us forever... I just hope she comes back to share her adventures with us!

 Up next is Sarah! And have a look-sy at where she's going!
Here's our line up in case you get lost at sea:
