Trustworthy Anchor

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today was my 2nd day with the pre-school class. I am getting to know the kids and they me. We had a good day today and they are starting to learn the routine of school and what is expected of them.
The weather was so nice that we took them outside today to enjoy the sunshine. They had sidewalk chalk and played with that. I am going to decorate the board for October. Our color is orange and next week's letter is "P". I will use some die cuts and cut pumpkins and oranges. Have to think of what else I might do so if you have any suggestions, I am all ears.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for a good friend of ours that needs   some encouragement right now.
For my card I wanted to use the Verve set "strong anchor" that I just received in the mail. I won the Viva la Verve challenge last month and I was awarded $100 to shop in the Verve store. This is one of the sets that I picked plus the dies on this card.

My designer paper is from the Stampin-Up "nautical expeditions" collection. I thought it worked great for my nautical theme.
The anchor die is a match for the stamp set. I also used one of the dies in the scallop trim trio and cut in cherry cobbler.
My layout on this card is from the Splitcoaststampers Sketch challenge #454.
Well that's it for me for today. It's late and I am tired so until next time.......God bless.
