Don't you just love this new designer paper from Fancy Pants? I've had these images colored for a couple months now, so I really lucked out with how well it coordinates! It was super easy to fussy cut the lighthouse, adhere it to the oval then pop it up on foam. Violรก...easy peasy card!

I have one more card I want to share today. Rose Bowl bound, baby! That's right, the Oregon Ducks are going up against the Wisconsin Badgers in the Rose Bowl and guess who has front row seats...Gramps! But not in the stadium...oh, no...Gramps will be checking out the game from the luxury of his "man cave". You can almost hear him chanting..."Let's Go Ducks, Let's Go Ducks!". Oh...and how sweet is it for Gramps to have a portrait of his sweet thang on the wall! Gotta love it!

Confession time...Gramps isn't as big of a Duck fan as I've made him out to be. He actually has a number 1 on his shirt and I omitted stamping that part and drew in the O. Although there is a circle on his hat...I fudged that a bit too and made another O. The pennant on the wall was actually computer generated from a picture I took off the Internet of an actual Duck pennant. Clever, huh? *grin* The inside of the card was also computer generated. My mother-in-law has a birthday coming up and she's a huge Duck fan so I'll find a nice birthday sentiment and get this over to her. Here's the inside...

***Blogger is giving me fits and deleted the Copic colors that were used.  I'll see if I can figure out what happend and fix it later.  Grrr...***
