Thinking of You

Hello & Happy Friday!

Yipppeee, the weekend is here!

Not sure what the weekend holds since it's still to be gross-ly HOT & HUMID. Blah, this type of weather I can live without! We will probably hibernate much of like we've been doing most of this week. I think my bike is missing me the last couple of days and the way it's looking it's to stay this ridiculously hot. Have I said how much I dislike this weather??!!

Yesterday afternoon I sat and stamped about an hour then headed to the backyard to rake up a few twigs & leaves that needed picked up before trash day. Yea, I was really quick so I did not break a sweat which is unusual for me! Ok so, back to the card...
I had these Hearth & Home Framelit cutouts in my stash since Deb & I had our stamp day. Deb graciously left me cut a bunch out. While I was cutting them I had a vision of my a card with a lighthouse off in the distance. 
Here is my take on it.

I was unbelievably happy with this card once it was finished!! I used the Woodgrain Background stamp on my Crumb Cake cardbase and some linen thread to give it a natural look. The grass flumes in the frame are from the Wetlands set and the lighthouse is from the From Land to Sea set. My inks are Crumb Cake & Dapper Denim.

Ink: Crumb Cake, Dapper Denim

Love the card! You've inspired me to make something beautifully masculine. I just receive By the Tide so going to try that set out. You're definitely right about the week! Love that image but I hope I don't look like that rooster today LOL...
