Lighting the way

I'd love to say I didn't post this week because I had heard about Blogger "having a fit" and dumping posts, but really I was just being a little slacker this week. LOL!  I was kinda productive in other ways though...
I made these Father's Day cards (no worries, none of these are going to my DFIL. hee-hee!)  I used Papertrey Ink dies to cut the edged kraft circles and Papertrey Ink stamps for the lantern and sentiment.  I'm a little fuzzy on if the background stamping I did with chalk ink was from a Technique Tuesday stamp or Hero Arts.  I took my cling stamps out of their packaging and put them in CD cases.  As a result, I'm in a pickle when it comes to figuring out the manufacturers.  Yikes!
I'm pretty sure the paper is old BG paper, but I tossed out all my "garbage" before I stopped to look at the label!!!  The bakers twine is Jillybean and I, of course, used Copics and memento ink for all the stamping and coloring. 

I'm lighting the way with these cards here:
colourQ- Challenge 84 yellow, olive, navy, kraft, white
My Mum's Craft Shop- To Die For
The Spotted Chick- Kraft
Stamp Something- Anything Goes
The Shabby Nest- Frugal Friday

Hope the water will begin to recede for all the folks who have been suffering from the Mississippi floods.  My fingers are crossed and my prayers go out for all our farmers who may have to be flooded to protect Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

On a lighter note, may you all have a weekend of family, friends, and fun!
