Hi Blog Friends, I'm back.
I bought this set of Kanban stamps a couple of months ago - and then promptly misplaced them!! They weren't lost - I just didn't know where they were!! Anyway as you can see I did find them so decided to use them for my brother in law's birthday card.

The blue plaid paper was a freebie from Jak Heath, matted onto blue card then added to white cardstock. The lighthouse, anchor and seagull were stamped in Encore Ultimate Metallic Blue pigment ink. A very simple card but suitable for a man. The stamp is quite detailed so I decided not to do any colouring. Perhaps nextt time I use it I will do it in black or grey and add some colour.
Lighthouses always remind me of a hymn my mum used to sing as a solo in church when she was younger
called the Night Watch, and which we sang at her funeral.
Bright stars are watching the world as it sleeps,
Shepherds watch over the little white sheep,
The lighthouse is shining for ships far at sea,
As God keeps the night watch for you and for me.
So sleep, sleep in peace and rest,
Don't be afraid of the darkness,
Alls well for over the land and the sea,
God's keeping the night watch for you and for me.
I think the words of this hymn are very comforting.
Well that's it for today. Hopefully I will be back tomorrow with another card.
With love from Christine xx
