It seems like forever since I posted something crafty. I guess it has been about 4 months, huh? I haven't created anything, at all, in the past few months. I'm still shocked that I have a card for you today. lol Rather than rambling on about everything else, lets get to my card for today.
Here is the inspiration photo posted over on the FYI challenge blog.
Isn't it beautiful?! I LOVE lighthouses! I've never actually been to one, but I still think they're lovely. And knowing why they were built in the first place is quite fantastic. Below is the card I made, based on the photo.
I got out my distress inks again, and they worked wonders, as usual! This is my first time using washi tape, and I'm quite happy with how it all turned out. The colors in the photo I found to be quite masculine, so I rolled with it! Unfortunately, my mother used up all of the sympathy cards I had in my stash, and she needed another. Lots of people around here being called by the Lord recently. May they rest in peace.
I've combined the following challenges in my card as well.
The Pink Elephant #197 - Washi Tape
Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #169 - Brown & Tan
Craft Your Passion #160 - Well Read (use text)
The Paper Shelter Challenge #110 - Music
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
I hope that you'll head over to see what my Lovelies have created for you today. They're more than fantastic! This challenge is open until Wednesday, May 15th, so that gives you two weeks to join us. We hope you'll give it a go!
On a side note, I leave you with a picture of my landscape as of yesterday afternoon. It's May, why is there snow??!!! *sigh* I am seriously ready for the warm Texas weather I'm missing!
I'll be back soon with another something crafty. I'm starting to feel that itch to create more. :-)
