A Sailboat and Lighthouse


The new Can You Digi It? Challenge is about Sunrise and Sunsets with some truly awesome inspirational photos. I used the ReviDevi Sail Away with Us set. It has so many cool sailing related images including this lighthouse, several boats (including a tug boat), a couple of anchors, the cutest little boy and little girl sailors, and the fun banner I used on the side of my oval die cut. I love sunsets! I think the prettiest sunset I ever saw was on top of Sandia Peak in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was every shade of yellow, pink, and orange, and it made the mountain look like it was watermellon color. Stunning!

I sponged the Spellbinder die cut while it was still in the die. I masked and blended the best I could. I then cut out, colored (with Copics and SU! markers), and popped up my lighthouse and sail boat. I used the SU! The Open Seas ledger stamp to make the bg panel.

The corner embellishments are from a 3-D Sticker set by La Petite (Hobby Lobby). They add elements of whimsy to this card in my opinion. The spectacles qualify this card for the Spectacular Spectacles Challenge at the Moxie Fab World. You need to go check out the inspiration pictures at both challenges - wow!


This is going to a very sweet friend of mine who is addicted to Lighthouses.


Hugz to all!

  8. Beautiful, Nancy!! Loved your description of the sunset you saw from the top of Sandia Peak. I was there once when I was young!! And we may be able to swing by there this summer. I'd love to take the kids up the cable car--it's so impressive!! Anyway, the sunset scene you made on your card is perfect in every way. Your lighthouse-loving friend will adore this!

  9. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog Nancy, its always nice to find new "crafty people".
    I took a look around your Kitchen Counter and I just love your style! You create such beautiful cards and you are kinda like me, eclectic! Gotta mix it up a bit, right? I have a friend, Kim of Oakpond Creations, who is NUTSO for Octopode Factory so I told her to swing by too. Looking forward to seeing more of your lovely cards. ~jeni :)
