The Lighthouse -- for DigiStamps4Joy
It's Sunday, so time for more new releases at DigiStamps4Joy. This week, one of the digi stamps we were given to work with was a wonderful lighthouse image, drawn by DigiStamps4Joy owner, Margy. Margy is from S. Africa, where there is a lot of ocean, but lighthouses have significance for me, too. My favorite place on earth is Lake Superior. My husband and I love to kayak to as many lighthouses as we can. That was the inspiration behind today's card:
The lighthouse poem is a stamp that I obtained on one of our many kayak trips to Lake Superior. I snatch up anything lighthouse or lake-like I can find. I even have an ore boat stamp! The digi stamp by Margy is beautiful:
I colored the lighthouse image with Copic markers. This is Memorial Day weekend -- a time to honor fallen Veteran's in the USA, so I went with Patriotic colors on my card. My father, who was a veteran, recently died. I put a flag on his grave a couple days ago to pay my respects for serving his country.
I'm giving this card to my husband, as he is my lighthouse -- my beacon.
There will be many other beautiful examples of this new release and others on the DigiStamps4Joy blog today. Please take a look!
