A Friendly Light

Today's card is for this week's My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club sketch (MFTWSC61). I used the My Favorite Things Inspired by Lighthouses stamp set. I masked the image and then used the Cloud Border CutUps from The Cat's Pajamas as a pattern, inking around the edges in order to give the illusion of clouds in the sky. The sentiment is from the same set; however, I broke it up so it would fit on two banners. The paper is all from the My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side One pad. I kept the patterns and embellishments simple for a more masculine feel.

And a Sunday driveby:
  • this has not been a great week
  • Don had a friend pass away
  • one of our vehicles needed $700 in repairs
  • same vehicle needs even more work to the tune of about $900
  • Don had an MRI on his shoulder that revealed a rotator cuff tear
  • watched a Hoarders episode which prompted me to clean my fridge
  • it positively sparkles now
  • hoping for better days ahead
