Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday, friends!
Hope your all doing well. I apologize for such a long absence in between updates. Things have been busy beyond belief the last few weeks. I have been cleaning, painting, throwing things away, preparing for a yard sale and getting our house ready to go on the market for sale. This past Wednesday the For Sale sign went in the front yard & the lock box on the door. I'm not gonna say that i'm happy about it but i'm trying (and it's very hard) to be supportive of hubby wanting this change. So far, no bites on the house. We have decided that Kelsey & I will stay behind until she graduates in June then join him in Missouri at that point. I'm not one for handling change very well and at this point there are so many unknowns that scare me. One day at a time....
So, yesterday I tried getting my butt back into my stamp room. So many changes went on in my stamp room as well, it took me forever just to spit out 1 card. LOL My neighbor requested a lighthouse retirement card so this is what I got accomplished.....





After a few hours I was able to accomplish what I set out to do. I'm happy with it and hope she will be too!
Card Details:
Stamps: Lighthouse & inside saying from Hero Arts, Sentiment on front from SU
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Cardstock: Buckaroo Blue, Kraft, PTI Select White
Accessories: Labels 4 Nesties, Lg Oval & Scalloped Oval Punches, Scallop Trim Border Punch, Mat Pack & Paper Piercer, Buckaroo Grosgrain, 2 Sided Tape, Dimensionals
Today it's looking to be a wash out! Rain is forecasted for today & tomorrow so i'm gonna take full advantage of being inside and try my hand at some Christmas goodies. If I get something accomplished...i'll be sure to get it posted!! :)
Thanks for stopping by & have a super Sunday!! ~Wendy

Hi Wendy,
First of all, this is a great card! I love lighthouses, and the sentiment inside is perfect for a retirement card! The colors are so soothing and so pretty!!!
I can only imagine the turmoil you're going through, having to pull up roots and start elsewhere! I don't adapt to change very well either, but we do adjust in the end. I'll be shooting an email to you soon, but for now I'm a bit overwhelmed with adding white inserts and stamping OWH on over 130 cards that were given to me for OWH yesterday! Gotta git 'er done!
Have a good Sunday and keep on stampin!
