Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit wit the Charmed Life Blog. Today is Father's Day here in the US.
I am still away in San Francisco taking care of my granddaughter. We will celebrate Father's Day here on Wednesday when my son and daughter-in-law return from their little getaway. Then I will celebrate with my hubby when I return from San Francisco.
While I was getting Phoenix Daisy ready for bed tonight she lost her 2nd baby tooth. She was so excited. We went through the process of putting it under her pillow and wait for the tooth fairy. It's been a few years since I went through this with her Daddy. It was exciting for me as well. I will post the photo I took of her tomorrow. It's on my cell phone and I am typing this post late and want to get it finished to get to bed. I will have a busy day with her tomorrow and she does wear me out.
So let's move onto my card for today. This one I made for my son in Pittsburgh for Father's Day. I used the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #579. I was the hostess and I chose lost lagoon, hello honey and basic gray for my color palette. Optional was to make it masculine.
I started by stenciling a sun in hello honey ink for my background. For my water, I used a stamp from PaperTrey Ink- the "ombre builders" set. It reminds me of waves. My Misti tool came in handy for placement and repeat stamping. The sentiment is a set from Waltzingmouse "man of the hour" also stamped in lost lagoon.
Now for my die cut images. The lighthouse, sailboat and birds are dies from CottageCutz. They are part of the Nautical Release.
For my sand, I used the Lawn Fawn hillside die and cut with whisper white cardstock. Sponged with crumb cake and soft suede ink and then for the sand granules, I used a stamp from Just For Fun but just inked up the sand grains with crumb cake ink.
Well, that's it for me for today. Time to get myself into bed and rest this body for tomorrow's full day with Phoenix Daisy. So until next time........God bless.
