Hello Friends!! I hope you are all enjoying the last bits of summer!! It is hard to believe how time is flying.  While my kids began their home school curriculum on Monday, all the kids in this area go back to school next week.  Wow!! Summer is over already...

Today I want to share a summer time image.  Since I can't go on vacation, I have decided to bring the ocean to me through stamps.

I had such fun coloring up the Mighty Sea and Waves on the Sea images from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The sentiment is from the newly released Anchor the Soul.

The window is created with a circle and square die.  The Cuttlebug tiny bubbles embossing folder is sponged on a soft aqua background.  The image is colored with copics, acrylic white and chalk.

I made this for a dear male friend of my husband and I's from church who recently lost his mother.  I hope this card brings him comfort.  In times of trouble, it is such a comfort to know God is our anchor.

This card incorporates several challenges at Splitcoast Stampers for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges.  If you are not a fan club member, this may a good time to join.  It is so much fun to join in for these challenges and there are so much inspiration to see.

I hope you enjoy my creation!!
