I wanted to make a window card for stamp classes this week and thought this would be a good stamp set to use. It’s one I have used often so I’m sorry it’s retiring. The clear panel on the front of the card is a piece of window sheet. The adhesive shows on the inside where the window sheet is attached so to hide that, on the inside of the card, there are two more of the narrow line of flowers seen here on the top of the card. Just attach over the visible adhesive and viola’, it’s no longer visible. The larger piece of card stock is 7″ x 4 & 1/4″ scored at 1 & 1/2″. The window sheet is 2″ x 4 & 1/4″ and the bottom piece of card stock is 2 & 3/4″ x 4 & 1/4″.
Stamp Set: Bordering on Romance
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Black StazOn, Markers: Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Celery
Paper: Riding Hood Red, White
Misc: Window Sheet, Pearls, Dimensionals
Today was a great day to take a drive in the convertible so a friend and I went to Port Orange to have lunch at Aunt Catfish on the River. Good food, great location, yummy cinnamon rolls. In fact they are known for those rolls and every meal comes with a warm one. After that we drove over to A1A and down to the Ponce Lighthouse. I had been there before but probably about 25 or 30 years ago. The lighthouse is the tallest in Florida and one of the tallest in the country and dates back to 1824. Visitors can climb the circular staircase’s 203 steps to the top where the view is said to be amazing. No, we did not go up. There are also several of the original buildings on the grounds that house memorabilia, a short video about the lighthouse, and a very nice gift shop. The grounds are immaculate. All of this for just $5 admission.
