Hello, Friends!! I hope you are all enjoying the summer.  I am not sure if you are experiencing the heat we are, but boy is it every hot and humid here in Virginia!!

The summer seems to be flying by.  This coming weekend is Father's Day already!!  Today I am sharing a card I made for the ODBD Shining the Light Inspiration challenge.  I plan to send it to my father in law.

For my creation, I used the Good Man and Hello Sunshine stamp sets and the Sunburst Background and Clouds and Raindrops dies.

Hello, Friends!! I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the summer!! We went on our first camping trip in almost two years since we were unable to camp last year because of my injuries and accident.  It was wet and rainy but none the less great to be together as a family in the RV!!! I had some challenges since I continue to have pain and still have to recover more from the accident, but I am none the less very blessed at the progress I have made and to still be alive.  Each day I see God's nature, wake up in the morning, see and interact with my children, I thank God for sparing my life!!  God is so good!!

Soon it is Father's Day and since I will be away on a Mission Trip with my girls prior and for Father's day, I thought I better make my hubby and Dads cards before I left.  My hubby loves this ODBD ship from The Waves on the Sea set, so I decided to combine it with the Good Man sentiment, Sunburst Background Die, Vintage Ephemera Collection paper, Vintage Labels die (for framing the sentiment), Layered Lacey Squares, Beautiful Borders die, Pennants dies.  I used this week's Shining the Light sketch at Our Daily Bread Designs.
