Timeless Tuesday/ Father's Day...and some news

Well guess what?  I am so excited, I will be joining the Timeless Tuesday team at Flourishes.  I am honored to be among such talent.  The girls are so sweet over at Flourishes, no matter what team, they are all amazing!

So on to the challenge for this week.  Silke is challenging us to make a Father's Day card.  I used the set called A Guiding Light.  My father is retired Navy.  He served for 21 years starting off on a submarine then on to big ships.  When I saw this set I knew I had to have it....it is perfect!


I used papers from Websters Pages (Yacht Club) which is now available in a wonderful 123 kit in the store HERE.  I used Spellbinders standard Ovals and lightly colored the image then sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink.  I also added a little twine and tag.


I used the wonderful sentiment that is in this set for the inside of the card.  Let me tell you how much I LOVE this set.  See the faint rope that I stamped to the left?





This is the ship my father was on.  The USS Mount Whitney.  He retired when we lived in Virgina Beach.  I remember watching him come in on this ship many times over the 7 years we lived there.  I told him the other day that I wanted to travel the world and see a lot of different countries.  He told me to join the Navy.  I laughed.  He always told me when I was younger that I needed to join the military because I needed discipline.  Ha!  I think I am pretty darn disciplined.
