DCRU #35 Earth Day / Tiddly Inks Challenge #1 / Quixotic #22 Splish Splash

Happy Earth Day To All !!!!!
Hope everyone is doing well.  I fell in love with this Digi the first time I saw it.  And to top it off it's a gift from Tiddly Inks just to get yours. I saw some of you have sign up to follow her.  Don't you just love her little cuties.
I collect LightHouses and I have two that look a lot like this one.  It kind of reminds me of
Dr. Suse. I wound up doing two of these. I couldn't part with the first one so I had to make another. Since the first one was for a birthday card for one of my nephew's Birthday in May.  I know some may be wondering about that. I have 3 nephews with Birthdays in May. The twins and then our baby boy who will turn 4.  His card is next.  I think that I will do the new Mo's Pirates. After seeing what Lori did with it.  I got to see her newest creations in person last night.  They were sooo cute.  We had a good time even if I had to cut my visit short due to a migraine.  Ok, I had better get to the details of my entery I know that you all are busy.
