The True Beacon

Chicago Trip 609

When I visited Navy Pier in Chicago last week and I took the boat tour of Chicago, the lighthouse stood out.  It was a beacom of hope or I like to think potential.  What every the ship was carrying had some form of potential.  Whether it was cargo or people, it had value.  I like to think of every person has potential talent.  Maybe,  you just need encouragement. So I am inviting you to come explore stamping.

Let’s Play Tic-Tac-Toe

Stampin’ Up! birthday card made with Wilderness Awaits stamp set and designed by Demo Pamela Sadler. See more cards at #stampinpinkrose

Today’s card is from a Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge on Paper Players.  I love when they do this because you have some choices as long as you keep it across, up & down or diagonal.  So I chose texture, scene, and die cut. This is a perfect masculine birthday card.  It is a touch of fall.  Maybe, I am hoping it will cool me down. Our heat index is around 100 degrees.
