Point Iroquois Lighthouse

Point Iroqouis

This lighthouse is about 20 miles west of our house on Whitefish Bay in Lake Superior.  We take all of our company here.  

Today was a much quieter day weather wise.  Just some snow flurries.  The winds were calm. 

Tomorrow Jim and I are headed to Petoskey to do some shopping.  Joann's has Cricut cartridges on sale for $39.99.  Our Joann's here in Sault Ste. Marie won't carry them.  Also need to stock up on some makings for simple meals. 

We went into town this afternoon to take back some carpet samples and to see how much it would cost for new dining room and hallway carpeting.  It wasn't as bad as we thought so after the new year we will order it.  Our carpet in the dining room has been down 30 years (ever since we have lived here).  While it looks good on the surface, it was rubberbacked and glued down and now is all rumply. 

Now about my card.  All materials are CTMH except for the stamp and that is Hardware Stampin' in Fremont Mi.  They make a lot of lighthouse stamps.  CS is Bamboo, White and New England Ivy.  Stripped paper is Basic Grey's Wassail Mantle.   Oh the red ribbon is from Joann's, but the photo hanger is from CTMH. 

Better go finish making my list.

Beautiful card! I love lighthouses although it's been 30+ years since I've seen a real one near Duluth! Have fun on your shopping trip!
