30 Day #2 ~ a BIRTHDAY treat!

Hi sweet friends!

Happy Father's Day to all that are celebrating!
My dad passed away some years ago
and while he is greatly missed,
it's nice to have a husband, brother, son-in-law all close
to me that are some of the most wonderful dads I know!

It's POURING here in Miami ...
just coming down in buckets!
I decided to sit at the table a little bit ago
to create for Day 2 of The Daily Marker Challenge
and my mind drifted to our vacation in the Carribean.
White sandy beaches, crystal blue waters and the cutest little white stone
homes with brightly colored rooves, doors and shutters!
Just so sweet!


Since this week for The Daily Marker is all about Lawn Fawn 
(my son pulled out letter "L" from the 'what's it gonna be' jar!) 
I knew right away I would ink up Village Shops.
I've had this set for so long and it's never seen ink ....
which is what most of images will be during this 30 day journey :)

Here is the inside with the matching sentiment
and the image left uncolored - 
a little trick I learned years ago from the talented Frances!

While I won't make be making a card each day during The 30 Day,
I'm super tickled with how this one came out!  

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
