Hello Friends!! I am finally here after having my sister here for a five day stay from Boston,  celebrating both of my daughter's birthdays and celebrating the July 4th holiday!!  Although being layed up after my accident, and not being able to take a normal vacation like most has changed our summer, God has truly blessed me with beautiful weather and a wonderful time with my family.  I have no complaints.  My pain does limit me somewhat but with each day I feel like I am able to do increasingly more.  God is so good!!!

Today I want to share a more masculine card I created.  I had so much fun combining stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs to make a scene!!  I used the last sketch from Splitcoast Stampers (SC495).

Stamps used: ODBD Fishing Net Background, The Mighty Sea, Waves on the Sea, Patriotic Pennants
Dies Used: ODBD Pennants dies, Spellbinders Circle and Scalloped Circles die
Embossing folders: Tim Holtz Crack embossing folder

I hope everyone in the USA had a wonderful holiday weekend!!  We have so much to be thankful for here with all our freedoms, especially our religious freedoms! 

Have a blessed day all!!!


challenges I am entering my creation in:
DRS Designs: Banners, Pennants and Flags
Word Art Wednesday- Anything goes (this site offers free digi scripture each week!!)
