card for Grumpy

Just chilling with my daughter and she had some admin stuff to do so we got out the lap top so whilst it was fired up I thought I would share the card I have made for Grumpy's birthday that's coming up on Sunday.

He has no idea how to get on line so I am safe  ha ha ha

We do go to Fleetwood quite often and when the wee folk came out I just knew that the couple on the bench was Grumpy and me!!! So this is my homage to Fleetwood and us  - for those of you who don't know there is a burnt out light house out to sea - hence the blob in the middle (my badly drawn version of it )

Image result for fleetwood lighthouse Here's the real thing.

After reading Barbara Gray's blog the other day I decided on the sky and the words - what to say that was the thing! so eventually just decided on this.  I have several Claritystamp boats but none that were just right for the picture I had in mind so this is one I have as part of a Hobby art set from a long time ago.  I hand drew the promenade railing.

Thanks for popping by !

What a beautifully put together card with stamps from different companies all working so well with your personal drawings to make a perfect card. I love the couple from the Wee Folk on that bench, and I reckon that will be the most used part of that set. Thank you for your visit this week and your lovely comments on my box. It is being delivered tomorrow so I hope she will like it. Have a good week. xxx Maggie
