Father's Day Card ~ Sweet Lighthouse Memories {2nd Post}

This lighthouse holds a special place in my heart.
Years ago when my friend was stationed at the 
Cape Blanco lighthouse when he was in the Coast Guard .
It was closed to the public so it was just the two of them.
He and I grew up across the street from each other.
I babysat his wife when she was a little girl.
She was like a daughter to me.
When they started dating we did everything together.
We went to Disneyland every summer for years.
We spent weekends and summer vacations at the lighthouse.
When she died in a car accident in 1985 my heart broke.
When I saw this stamp I just had to have it.

I used it to create this card for my Father-in-law.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Cape Blanco Lighthouse stamp from Peddler's Pack.
*Sentiment from Stampin Up.
*G07, E13 and R37 markers from Copic
*Tuxedo Black stamp pad from Tsukineko.

May your day always be filled with love and laughter.
