Sodus Point Light

I have some pictures to share of our trip out east this past October but first I will share another Autumn card I made using the coloring calendar images.

Have you noticed I have been using more of my ribbons lately :)  I forget to use some of my goodies when I am making my cards, if it isn't right in front of me it tends to be forgotten.  I added one of my die cut leaves to it and a tag, with a pattern paper background.

On our way out to see our daughter in Connecticut we decided to take the upper New York route and we stopped in Sodus Point New York to check out the light house there.  It wasn't open when we came we were a bit early but we did get to check out the grounds of the lighthouse,

They did a beautiful job of landscaping the yard here.

Above is the view you would see from the water.

This light was out farther in the water and just as we were looking out over the water a sailboat was leaving the harbor. It is a little grainy I had my lens zoomed as far as it could go.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today, hope you enjoy your weekend.

I too forget all the pretties I have stored away. I seem to need a visual to remember to use them. =) This is a pretty card, Connie. The touch of the ribbon is lovely. It seems that the road you drove along on the way to Connecticut is a lovely one. Oh to be sailing on the blue, blue sea on that pretty sailboat.

What a cute and fun flower, Connie! I love how you've used it on a patterned paper background and added the ribbon. It's easy to forget these things. I have to do something about my ribbon situation. I'm so glad you shared your trip pictures, too. What a beautiful lighthouse that is!
