Be Strong!

Happy and a chilled Sunday to you all,

Yesterday I got some new stamps from Fresh Squeezed Stamps and was so excited to get playing! But Saturday hubby and I have a ritual of a chilled morning in our local cafe. So after we had our fill of caffeine and gossip we both came back to a respective hobbies.....me getting inky with my new stamps while he produced his music on the other side of our creative space (our spare bedroom!!).

My card today was inspired firstly by the picture below at For Your Inspiration. I had lots of ideas for this but the grey stones kept popping into my head and the strength of the lighthouse against the environmental elements, so this is what I went with. Then I saw the sketch below at CAS(E) this Sketch, loved it and wanted to create something for it. And what to you know, my new stamps provided the final piece of inspiration I needed to combine these challenges. I am also going to enter this into the CAS challenge at Sweet Stampin'

And here is what I came up with:





             

Enjoy your Sunday my friends x
