Fairy's and Lightstation

Today I am sharing a card from my latest magazine subscription Cardmaking and Papercraft June 2019. They have stamps in this but they also had these great card toppers that are so pretty, I liked the coloring so I decided to go with them instead of the stamping.

The papers and butterfly tag was in this set also.  I just added a sheer ribbon and some gems from my stash. I added some wink of stella to the wings on the paper and card topper, but they didn't work well with the sheen that is one the card topper so I added some stickles to those wings.

Queen & co. - Petite Posies Green gems
wink of stella on wings on the paper
Stickles - Diamond for wings on the card topper

I am sharing the last of our pictures from our Michigan trip. This was the hottest day on our trip and I actually got a bit of a sunburn while we were at this lighthouse.

White River Light Station

There was a nice big side yard but to get a good picture of the front was hard since as you can see the chairs out front was at the edge of the property and then there is a lot of steps that lead you down to a walk along the river.

Here is a picture of it from down on the river walk. The sun was kind of harsh so hard to get a good picture.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you are enjoying a great weekend!

You sure have some cool lighthouses over there. This one's on a river? It looks like it was a very warm and sunny day. Your card sure is pretty! So lovely to have the paper and card topper together. Can't have fairies without sparkle! BTW, I meant to say on your previous post that I like your idea of using new and old together. I sure have a lot of new stuff lately, but I don't think I could make a card without using something old. Enjoy, Connie!

Connie, Oh I love lighthouses. That one is splendid! I imagine if walls could talk, that lighthouse would have many interesting stories to tell.

And I am a sucker for anything fairies! Love your card!!

I have that issue of the magazine and haven’t used the contents yet. It does make such a pretty card how you have done it.

Your photos are always fun to look at. What a lovely light house. So many wonderful ones you visited. I feel the heat in the photos, too. Thanks for sharing, Connie!

Such a cute card. It's nice to get free product from that magazine. I have stamps from them.

Very interesting photos. I've never seen a brick house/lighthouse before. It looks so quaint. Thanks for sharing all your beautiful photos.
