Biloxi Lighthouse

Although the only watercraft I pilot are kayaks and canoes, I still can't resist the charm of anchors, lighthouses, and other such seaworthy symbols. To my delight, both are included with the Land Ho cut file set, as well as a few jolly good phrases. How perfect is that lighthouse on the page below!

Erected in 1858, this lighthouse has the distinction of being tended by female lightkeepers for more years than any other lighthouse in the U. S. One such keeper assumed the role after her husband died, tending the light for 53 years! Having survived scores of hurricanes, the Biloxi Lighthouse today is a Mississippi landmark and tourist attraction. 

Take a look at the Land Ho cut file set, new to The Cut Shoppe's Etsy store:

Cut from a grey print paper, my lighthouse was inked for dimension: black ink for shadows, white for highlights. A washi tape banner picks up the yellow, red, and navy of my papers:

Layers of patterned paper, an anchor-print string envelope, postcard journal card, anchor pin, and coordinating enamel dots highlight the actual lighthouse photo:

Thanks for stopping by the blog today; we've enjoyed having you!
