Setting Sail!

Good Day!  Welcome to Rhapsody On Paper.  For today's post I have a birthday card for my hubby.  Besides being able to repair anything, he loves to fish.  He has had the boat for a long time.  Due to neglect at a storage place, he has completely re-wired and re-fitted the inside. Now it's time for the outside.  Just last weekend his 'crew' came and started the process of painting.  Da boat is looking marvelous.  Still not quite time for sea water yet but a lot closer than last year.

For his birthday I have made a card featuring the sea and a lighthouse.  Here are the lyrics...

~ScrappyDew Lighthouse files #2, 3 and 4
~Font Black Jack regular
~Recollections scraps
~DCWV Glitter stack
~K&C0. Sealife stack
~Silver Bullet 24" cutter
~Foil Master
~SureCutsALot v4

So the Lighthouse file is scaled down to fit on a 6x6 card base.  I do this before anything else.  This way I keep the proportions correct.  Then it's just a matter of putting the card together.  I had written down the phrase on the inside front cover a few months ago and used it.  Being able to foil the letters is awesome.  So here is the finished card.

I sure hope he enjoys this.  I have a filet mignon dinner planned with pumpkin pie. And I bought him the movie "American Sniper".  I'll let you know the results...

Next week, I have a Minion birthday card for Duane.  Duane is the shop manager and considered our son.  After that, who knows.  

Have a wonderful week!  Bright blessings, Jana
