Happy Tuesday!! I hope all is well with you all!!  Life has been busy but great!!  My parents have been visiting for the past week and we have been having a great time together.  Unfortunately they leave today.  I will truly miss having them here!!!!  I am so blessed to have such special parents and I thank God for the time we have had together. Now...I get to look forward to the next time.

Today I am popping in to share a sneak peek of two stamp sets: Fishing and The Waves on the Sea, to be released tomorrow at Our Daily Bread Designs, and this week's Shining the Light challenge which is to Needle it!!!

The dp I used is some new My Mind's Eye paper I bought from Michaels. The borders on my image/sentiment panel is cut with the Spellbinders On the Edge dies.  Instead of sewing I decided to pierce...making it more masculine.
