Father's Day ~ Lighthouse

Here is a Father's Day card for my very special father-in-law.
A few years ago I didn't have time or the mojo to make Christmas cards so I bought them.
No biggie for most people right but did I get a huge and pleasant surprise that year.
My father-in-law was very disappointed to not get one of my handmade cards.
He brought me into his bedroom where he has hung shelves especially to display each and every card I have ever made him.
So no matter what he will always get a special handmade card.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front frame cut at 5.25 x 4 in.
*Card front frame cut at 5 x 3.75 in.
*Card front frame cut at 4.75 x 3.5 in. paper from Bo Bunny
*Stitched frame from the My Creative Time Stitched "Capture" Frame with Arrow Die set.
*Sentiment from the CardzTV "Happy Days" stamp set.
*Lighthouse scene stamp from Studio 112
*Lighthouse scene colored with assorted CTMH, Copic and Spectrum Noir pens.

May your day always be filled with love.
