My mom is a huge fan of lighthouses – she has a bathroom totally decorated with them! I have always found them to be beautiful and stately and have heard many stories about those lives who have been blessed by them. I created this card with her in mind, in a few weeks she will need me to send her some love as she goes through some difficult things, and hopefully this card will bless her.
Another reason for this card is that there was a Stampin’ Up! set eons ago that had this sentiment stamp :
“A light, a compass, a beacon true, my life is richly blessed by you.”
I think we can all think of someone who has been a light in our life, helped us find direction and blessed us!
I must say that in my blogging efforts and joining of challenges there have been friends who have been a steady light, have given me direction, and encouragement, I indeed have been blessed by their light! They are: Carol of the blog Just Me: c. She is delightful and she keeps pointing me in the right directions for joining challenges and such – her talent is amazing and you will love visiting her. Kymona of the blog Kreative Kymona. She encourages me to go for it and try new things – she sent me a set of cards encouraging me to Be Generous, Be Strong, Be Fearless and Be Yourself!! Her blog is definitely worth a look! I will from time to time be telling you about some of the amazing, awesomely talented people I have met through this incredible place we call blogland!
So here is the card I made inspired by my mom and these ladies:
This card meets the sketch for the challenge at Happy Little Stampers – here is the sketch:
Since I used Paper Smooches stamps I am going to enter this card in a challenge over there. It is the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog September 7 – 13 Anything Goes (wk 1) challenge!
Thank you for coming by today – hope you know someone who is a light to you that you can make something beautiful for and thank them for being a blessing to you!!
Have a wonderful day!!
