Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Being the beginning of the month it is time to introduce our challenge hostess for July which is Joanne Grzelak.

Joanne tells us that ....  One of her favorite places on Earth is Nubble Light, a beautiful lighthouse in York, Maine.  She could sit there for hours looking at and listening to the ocean.  This week, let’s honor lighthouses on our cards.  If for some reason you do not have a lighthouse image, then create an ocean scene.

For my card this week I created an accordion card using the Fancy Label Accordion Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

To decorate my card I used a new Lighthouse die set I purchased recently along with a Seagulls die set. The sentiment in the centre page of my card is from the Ahoy Sentiments Clear Stamp set designed by Joset Designs for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Here is my card when it is closed ready to be placed in an envelope.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
