Light house card


Inspired by our recent trip, I have been wanting to use my light house and shell stamps. I saw this beautiful card on Splitcoast and just had to case it. The top of the card is cut out as a frame and placed on with pop-dots to raise it up. The bottom layer is stamped and colored and then "framed". It was not easy but I really love it! It is a mix of three stamp sets and fortunately I had all three. I am ready to go back to the beach, it was so nice this year.

I am excited to be able to go back to the beach this year though! I am taking my little one next week for an one day camp called "Surfer's Healing". It is a non-profit organization that travels the country's coasts in the Summer to teach Autistic children to learn to surf. It is a very special program and even though my son is PDD-NOS he is on the spectrum so he gets to go! I am so grateful because he loves the swim team and loves the ocean so much, this is a rare opportunity and I know he will love it. It will test me though, it is 2 1/2 hour drive there and then back and I have to do it all in one day since he is in school (year round). It is worth it. I am sure I will blog about it as I expect it to be amazing :)

Love the card! Turned out fabulous!

and what a wonderful opportunity for your son to experience the surf camp...I bet he's going to LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Can't wait to hear how it goes...

As for the drive...just turn up the music! (or get one of those audio books that could entertain both of you!)
