Lighthouses for Mom…

My mother loves Lighthouses and when I saw the Uncharted Territory set – boy, did I see the possibilities! I also saw a sketch on one of the blogs I follow and just had to try to put the two together. The blog with the sketch was Stampin 411. thanks for the inspiration gals.Lighthouse1

Lighthouse Card #1 Recipe:
Uncharted Territory, Afterthoughts
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight CS, Sweet Shoppe DSP (SAB 2011)
Accessories: Pumpkin Pie  3/8″ Taffeta ribbon, Sweet Shoppe Buttons (SAB-2011), Wide Oval Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Snail, Sponge Daubers

For my second Lighthouse card  I decided to pull out my new Stampin Pastels and play with coloring with chalk. Using the Aqua Painter and chalks gave this card a very soft summer day feel.Lighthouse2

Both of these cards will find a home with my Mom. She is a great lady who I don’t acknowledge near as much as she deserved. Love ya, Mom!

On the inside I used the verse from the same stamp set. It is a lovely sentiment that is appropriate for many occasions.
