Birhtday Lighthouse

Happy Labor Day! I am still fighting this summer cold and I have to go back to work tomorrow. With the wedding less than two weeks away, I am glad the cold happened this weekend while I could take it easy. I did manage, with the help of my wonderful DH, to finish all the boxes for the favors. I will share those with you some time this week. But tonight I made a birthday card for Tom's nephew, whose birthday is the same day as Tricia's wedding.

I used a new die cut I got at a Lawn Fawn release party last Friday evening. This is the large stitched banner from the set and I cut it out so that it made a card. I used a Gina K stamp set that I haven't used in ages called Guiding Light. And then I pulled out my colored pencils that I haven't used in forever and colored the image. I added a ribbon in the banner holes to finish it off. Pretty easy peasy. But I like it!

I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you had a relaxing Labor Day and are ready for your four day week. Four more days and I will be on vacation until September 16th so I am looking forward to this week moving quickly. LOL! Have an awesome week!

This is gorgeous!!! You know how I love ANYTHING with a coast theme. I was on the coast just a few days ago and already miss it. So sorry you have a summer cold...that's the pits and not helping with the closeness of the wedding.
