Hi, there! It's been a while since I played at My Craft Spot, so today I'm posting a Father's Day card for My Craft Spot's Monday Challenge!  The challenge is titled "King of the Grill" and it calls for Father's Day cards.  Here's my card:

I just love this stamp set (Gina K Designs 'By the Sea')! 
The DP is also GKD (Pool Side Paper Stack).


And then I decided to make a bookmark to go with it:

You'll notice I used the same lighthouse image than on the card, but the bottom is not quite the same.  Since the bookmark is a lot narrower than the stamp, I masked it to only show the lighthouse, not the sand around it.  I could have used a stamp marker but I thought it was easier to mask the stamp.

Ok, my friends, hope you enjoy my "flash" post today.  Thanks for stopping by!

Have a bright day!


  1. I love that sentiment inside and I can practically taste the salt air! Good job on the masking too-that is a seamless job!

  2. Pretty card, the inside sentiment is so sweet. Thanks for playing at My Craft Spot.

  3. Very pretty card. Love the soft colors.


  4. Beautiful card! I love the decorative mat and matching book mark! Thanks for playing at My Craft Spot!

  5. What a gorgeous set! The frame is just perfect with the image on your card - and how delightful to have a matching bookmark! I love the sentiment inside and it goes so perfectly with the image of the lighthouse.
    Thanks so much for playing along with us at My Craft Spot!
