LAZY, HAZY DAYS OF SUMMER


Hello! Have you ever been in a season where you know life is going to change in a few weeks? I am there right now. Preparing for our fall schedule. It has been such a busy summer with having to work to help make ends meet and our school season starting next week too. We have had a lot of fun this summer too. With the hot, humid weather and my work schedule, I did not get to the beach as often as I intended but I enjoyed some good books and lots of quiet time mingled in. I hope you enjoy EACH MOMENT of your remaining summer too!!!

My card today uses QKR STAMPEDE images - Cute and Quirky! As I made this card, I threw in a few challenges as well... they are...

Stampin' Sisters in Christ: Challenge: create a card of apology or one reaching out to someone and encouraging them to put the past behind them and move forward. Based on this beautiful Scripture Philippians 3:13-14 "Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."  (my card signifies the hope of forgiveness!)
