I've been very busy this w/e getting ready for surgery tomorrow. I didn't even think I'd do a card today, but when I saw that Mary was the FS, I knew I had to play. I fell in love w/ her lighthouse card seen here. I also was inspired by all the lighthouses seen in yesterday's IC site, Limoges Box Collector. To give my Cape Hatteras light the Limoges look, I used 2 layers of UTEE. Things I changed on Mary's card are different dp & ef, I used a punched border instead of the ric-rac, and left off the circle sea-faring thing she had!
Congratulations Mary. Your gallery is devine, you leave the best comments & you are a wonderful CC hostess. Enjoy your time in the spotlight.
This is my last card for a while as tomorrow is my partial knee replacement surgery. I'll keep tabs on you all on my tablet & I can at least comment. I plan to do some counted cross stitch since all my stamping gear is upstairs.
Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

KHRH, this is a very sweet CASE of Mary's card! I love the ships sailing in the background and the waves in the foreground... very clever use of DP and embossing. Good luck with your surgery tomorrow... I'll be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
