I'm a Christian, married to my wonderful husband, Adrian, since 1978 (where has the time gone?). We have two children, Michael and Elizabeth who are just the best children we could have wished for, we're so blessed, and proud of them. Michael and Aisling,our daughter in law, have a daughter Bronwyne Ann. Elizabeth is married to Martyn. I use my crafting to raise funds for various charities. The charity that I'm currently sponsoring is Save The Children

I love this stamp from Michael Powell. It reminds me of summer holidays taken in Scarborough with its lighthouse and quayside with the boats and the houses on the slope of old Scarborough town. Apart from that I love lighthouses anyway because of their design and the symbolism of the Light of the World
I'm entering this card into the following challenges
I chose the backing paper as it gives the impression of the sea
When I stamped the image I somehow managed to to make a black line by the spire of the church in the top right hand corner. Not to be put off by the mistake I turned it into the flag of St George!
I used a southwest corner punch on the backing cards of the picture and sentiment panels. I stamped the sentiment onto scrap paper first and used the second generation stamp as I thought that it blended in better with watercolour feel of the image
