Where's the Pig Roast??

Oh boy, is this baby ever late.  I was supposed to have posted this last week, but stuff happens and well, it's finally here in all it's crazy beachy glory.
The theme over at Top Tip Tuesday this round is Masculine and ummmm, I'm not sure I set sail too clearly with this card. However, in my defense, I did think of my dad wearing his crazy Hawaiian shirts and the process grew from there. I've included everything I could find except for the pig roast.  Thank you so much to Birdie Brown for offering up this cute little lighthouse that I've paper pieced for the center focal point.  Our sponsors this week are Birdie Brown and  Sweet Stamp Store, so hurry on over to submit your masculine themed cards and you'll be in the running for a wonderful prize and don't forget, if you leave a tip, you'll be eligible for two prizes!!
Also, I'd like to think Pia for her wonderful inspiration that gave me the motivation for this project as well. I was going to CASE her card, but like I said, I went nuts on this one.  Here's her card anyway because I wanted to give her credit and thanks for helping me out of a slump. :)

Hugs n' Happy Stamping to you,
Lisa xx

Oh wow Lisa this is awesome with a wonderful summery masculine feeling. Love all the layers and I had a good chuckle at you incorporating your dad's hawaiian shirt.

So, where's the pig? I feel like one of those little old ladies standing in the fast food joint saying "Where's the beef?" Your card is definitely beechy. But I am definitely not eating "no bird" at a pig pickin"!

Kitchen sink--pig roast...hey whatever gets the job done Twang. :-) I think all those layers look fantastic. Glad to know I'm not the only one so busy she's running around like a chicken with her head cut off. Hope you're enjoying your summer. Hugs!

WOW, fabulous card!!. Wonderful dimension and colors, so many things to admire here!. Hugs.

Buttons said...

Not sure there's any such thing as a 'masculine card' myself Lisa. This fits the bill perfectly in my eyes, not least as it doesn't feature the usual 'male' stuff. Superb layering - love the sun rays and then the arrow lighthouse is really clever. Thanks for the inspiration here. Hugs, Jenny x

Kelly Neis said...

Wonderful card!!
Hugs from the Gulf, hehe

Can you believe I finally made it here.. I'm so behind but working my way back to you babe (just had to say that).. I think I'm getting tired, been working on comments all day. Love your inspiration your Dads Hawaiian shirt. Great job with the 3D look of the sun, water, sky, lighthouse and the awesome bird. The more I look at your card the more things I see, great job...
Hugs, Patricia

Totally a work of art Lisa! I would put this in a shadow box and put it out every summer! A day dream! I could stare for days!

Pia S said...

This is so cheerful and bright and FUN! I was quite surprised (and honored) to see that I had given you some sort of inspiration for this card. If it had been a CASE I must honestly say that the original card would be quite a little shadow compared to this one. Love it, Lisa!

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

Wow. There is a lot going on here but it all works so well together. Pia's work is always wonderful, isn't it?! Love the bright colours and the cool lighthouse. I can definitely see the influence of a Hawaiian shirt or two!

Hugs,
Original
