Carve Your Blessings in Stone

As summer is drawing to an end, some families and couples are making their way to the coast for one last visit before buckling down for the school year.  There is nothing quite like the calming peaceful feeling you can get when you simply stand in the edge of the ocean water and watch the sand change the surface around your feet with every wave that comes in and leaves out. 

Jan's Digital Shop has a beautiful digital called The Sandbox that has both the beach images for the kids and also the image below for the older cards or crafting projects.  

For today's card, I have pulled the image of the sand castle, standing in all it's glory and the sentiment wording which are so very powerful.

 'Write Your Worries in the Sand, Carve Your Blessings in Stone.'

What a beautiful verse that could be followed day after day, if we could just focus on our blessings and wash our worries away in the swift sands of the ocean.

After Copic coloring the image, I used the Memory Maker Matinee Edge die to cut the decorative edges.  Partial pieces were used for the corners of the matting behind the colored image.  Then the image and mats were secured to the A2 sized card base which I had previously covered in black card stock.  I finished the card by adding the small fish tail die from a scrap of coordinating paper.

I'd challenge you to make a card of encouragement and send to someone you know who might be sufferings during these trying days.
