And Now For Something Completely Different

Well, it is still a card so it is not that completely different. So for something slightly different here is a lighthouse card. Specifically the Trevose Head lighthouse in Cornwall – I wanted a Cornish lighthouse as the person this card is for has a strong connection to Cornwall, I just hope they like lighthouses 🙂


Edit: Thanks Diane for reminding me to enter this to the BasicGrey challenge this week which is for the boys! Bless me, I had checked out the challenges at the beginning of the week but was so obsessed with getting the commission done (well, I had been mulling them over for a few weeks now and deadline was today!), it just dropped out of my head!
