Lighthouse for Dad

I am nothing more than woefully behind in posting my card creations, and while I'd really like to post them in the order I created them, that's just not going to happen. Soooooo...

This is the card I made for my dad for Father's Day! I created it from yet another card kit; this one is from Lorie. Such a beautiful image to color, and the patterned paper was perfect! (Please, no comments on the number of Copics I used; I'm still learning!)

Lorie included a great bag o' goodies in the kit, but I remembered I had these tarnished brass buttons in a jar given to me by a friend that I've been itching to use. And see this little flower? I crocheted it myself! I used the same crochet cotton to thread and tie the buttons on the card.

So what (and when) will I be posting next? Who knows ... I guess you'll just have to check back to find out. Tee-hee-hee!

Thanks for stopping by to visit. Have a great day!

Those buttons are wonderful, and I love the way you did the rope!! This has to be one of my favorite masculine cards EVER!!!

Everything about your card is just simply breathtaking, Susan. It's such a vision to see this little scene you colored (how many Copics, again? Tee hee!) And your flowers! GAH!!!! A hidden talent now bursting out for all to oogle over - they turned out superb and a perfet match to your stunning little scenery card. Well done!
