KLM - Alex Bay Lighthouse

Hi folks, sorry I haven't posted lately. Don't know about you, but I find this time of year exceptionally busy. It feels like I'm doing about a hundred things at once and getting nothing done... I hate that feeling! So I decided to take a break and did some creating last night. Finishing a card and getting it uploaded to my blog always gives me a great feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment. Plus what could be more fun than playing with some new toys!
This KLM Designs image is called Alex Bay Lighthouse. And yes, there really is an Alex Bay Lighthouse... It's also known as 'Sunken Rock Lighthouse' because it marks a submerged rock formation just off Alexandria Bay, New York. You may want to take a peek at one of the many sites I found when I googled Alex Bay Lighthouse... click here.
What a great image to create masculine cards. I kept my design simple, but the card needed something... turns out my new Tim Holtz EF was the perfect solution. I'm please with how this turned out!
Have a great day and enjoy the upcoming weekend.
Supplies: Stamps - Alex Bay Lighthouse by KLM Designs, PTI - Father Knows Best sentiment; Paper - SU! Bermuda Bay, gray from my stash (manufacturer unknown), GP white; Ink - Versafine smokey gray, Copics and pencils with gamsol, Memento summer sky; Accessories - Spellbinder dies, Tim Holtz EF, dimensionals, jewelery spacers from Mike's.
