red light house

Hello and good afternoon! Did you have a great week-end? We had a quiet one and on Sunday I drove two hours south to my daughters to watch the kids all week while she finishes up her school year. The kids are out for the summer, but the teachers have to attend one more week. I didn't arrive until 12:30 AM for I missed one of the roads and almost ended up in DC. Amy was awake when I arrived and we talked until 2. I tried sleeping on the couch after she went to bed and her hubby got up at 4 to raid the fridgerator and Abbie woke me at 6 and then Andrew was up. My eyes feel so heavy and I would love to close them for about an hour. However, Andrew is 4 and Abbie 6 and not sure what will happened if I did. So I thought perfect time to do a blog post which I have been really poor at all year. 

I had an order for 6 Father's Day cards and so guess what I will be posting all week?!! You guessed it!! Today's card is using the light house from "By the Sea" stamp set at Gina K's.  The sentiment was typed in Word and I so love it! This week at The Outlawz Greetings Challenge is Happy Father's Day  or Boys card.  I have a really hard time creating cards for men and esp. ones I do not know. Do you? On a female card you can add anything you want and of course we love practically any kind of adorable image. But what do men like on their card? We think boys and men don't like glittery shining things but the boys do:) My grandsons always say "ah that is pretty!" if I glitter something up but what do men like? Tell me!!


Copics: Red R59, R24 R22.
I sponged the white sentiment paper with Blue Sky Memento Ink.

Aw, what a good mom and grandma you are! Hope you don't get too exhausted this week taking care of the grandkids! Mine can wear me out! :^)
Love your masculine card! The sentiment is lovely and the lighthouse goes great with it! I think men and boys like a little glitter, though they probably don't want to admit it! LOL!
Hugs,
Penny
