You are the best

Every summer I try to get in at least one boat ride in one of the many waterways around us here in Maryland. The Friday of Labor Day Weekend, hubs and I finally got out to take a 90 minute cruise out of Annopolis.  We cruised out and under the Bay Bridge and back.  It was finally a day that wasn't so sweltering and it was a perfect day on the water. 

I once had a bridge phobia and since living in Maryland, a state full of bridges, I have overcome that fear.  I have driven over this bridge even in the dark, and have ridden across it several times.  Those first few times I rode across it, my eyes were shut and hubs had to tell me when I could open my eyes.

Here are some pictures its a double bridge and the directions on either side can change depending on traffic volumes.

Two Ospreys make their home on one of the buoys.   After our cruise, we dined at a German restaurant not too far away.  It was a fun afternoon and evening. 

Since hubs doesn't get a lot of cards from me any more, I thought I'd send this one to his business address as  a thank you for a special date.

I used the SSS stamp set Sailing, and a Hero Arts set for the sentiment.

Now that I have gotten a sail boat card in, I can start on those fall cards.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

That is a cute idea to send the card to DH's business address. I never thought of doing that! It is a nice card, I love the woodgrain circle that looks like a port hole!

Your photos are fabulous Cat and I can totally relate to your bridge-aphobia! I am terrified of heights and bridges and heights often go hand in hand! So proud of you! I am sure your hubby loved this fantastic card especially since it is from talented you!

What a great card to celebrate your cruise and dinner date with your hubby! I love how you created the water in the background and the woodgrain around the aperture is perfect!
