CASology #239

Welcome to Week 239 of CASology!  Take a look at the cue word for this week:

There are plenty of different kinds of landmarks in the world but living on an island, just down the road from one of our two lighthouses, I figured I had to go with this image.  Also it was an NBUS Paper Smooches die so I was happy to have a chance to put it to work.  The sentiment is from a really old Paper Smooches set, from their first or second release I think.  The glow of the lamp was created with a Lil' Inkers Designs die.  

Looking forward to seeing what direction the cue word takes you.  Check out the gorgeousness from the rest of the design team then play along!

I love lighthouses so this cute card makes me happy! Lucky you to live close to two of them!!

At first I was like "I wish I lived down the street from a lighthouse" but then I thought about how much I love dark rooms and hate the streetlights outside my bedroom, so I'm not sure I'm so in love with the idea anymore. What I am in love with is your quaint little card. Love the die cut halo behind the lighthouse.

I would never have thought of this as an idea, it was a total 'light bulb' moment for sure lol. What a fab and fun card Jen!

Living surrounded by the Great Lakes, we have plenty of lighthouses. Yours is a cute one, Jen, and definitely what I'd consider a landmark.

Love your lighthouse Jen, genius touch with the yellow circle as the 'glow' love it. Cx

So goood!! I am always in awe of lighthouses - how they are built and the amazingly important function they serve. One of my favourite lighthouses is at at Cape Leeuwin, Augusta, where the Indian Ocean and Southern Oceans meet. A particularly wild, precarious, rocky stretch of coastline - at least it seems that way every time we go there! :-) Love this take on 'landmark', and as usual, your paper-piecing rocks!
