Light of Our Lives

Father's Day is this week and I was behind in getting cards done. I finished the most important one last night. This is for Tom's Dad. I see him as a lighthouse for his family. A focal point and a guide for how to live our lives. A very special man.


The image is from From the Heart Stamps. I miss Faith and her lovely stamps but I still have a collection that I can use. The sentiment is from Desert Diva. I fussy cut the image since it had a nice frame on it and die cut the sentiment with Quickutz Tags. The background is a scrap of paper that I had on my desk for a project the other day. It reminded me of waves and thought it fit perfectly. The image is colored with Koh-i-noor Woodless Pencils. I am entering these challenges:

I am off to work on some sympathy cards. Not my favorite things to make and I've need far too many of them lately. Unbelievably, I've sent three to one family in the last 2 months. Have a wonderful day!
