Birthday Greetings





I needed a couple special birthday cards and wanted to go with a nautical theme so I went to Sketch Saturday for inspiration.  I used a Lighthouse by Our Daily Bread  and double sided papers on, Graphic 45  the top one and former Angel Company papers on the second one.  One mailed on the weekend and one to be mailed today.

A few fun challenges:

Just Keep on Creating: Anything Goes  11/29
Sketch Saturday #483

The Paper Shelter: #273: More than one of: Stamped Image  11/23

Beautiful lighthouse cards, Donna! I always enjoy anything to do with the ocean! Have a wonderful day, my friend!

The images look quite different stamped in black and blue. Super masculine designs, but personally I see these kind of nautical cards fit for women as well. Great idea to make two while you were at it.
