Last Post for August

Hi all.  This is my last post for the month of August.  I chose the file called Lighthouse.  I kept my card very simple.  After printing the image, I colored with colored pencils and Sharpie markers.  I also added the flying seagulls in the background by hand.  The image was layered over black card stock and I used square brads in each corner, before glueing the entire matted image onto the yellow card base.  I added the red & white baker's twine to give it that nautical feel.

My next card is one that I made for my ex-husband.  He is a pilot instructor and I decided to make something humorous for him, especially with what the 2 of us have been going through with the loss of our only son.  The inside of the card says "not you, I was talking about the plane!"  Tomorrow is his birthday.  I hope he receives it in time!

In a couple of days, Imagine That Digis will be offering a new image for the progressive image challenge.  Keep your eyes out.  You are gone to love it!
Till next time...


  1. Sorry I haven't been around. I haven't been getting all of my email updates through AOL again. It has to be an AOL issue because it has happened to so many blogs I follow by email. I signed up with my own blog so I can see when they aren't being received by people. My plan is to switch blogs I follow to another network but just haven't had time to set up a special email and switch things yet. Anywho...
    I just got an email update for you so I thought I'd come over to see how you are doing.
    I am so glad you and your ex are there for each other through this because no one else can truly understand the loss the two of you are feeling. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
    The card you made him made me laugh. I'm sure it will brighten his day.
    Hang in there.

    1. Thank you D- for your kind thoughts. I haven't heard from him yet, but I am sure he loved it. He lives in rural NM and things go pretty slowly there... Hope you get things straightened out with you email updates. I am about to go to your blog and see what you are up to.
