Inspiration Destinaton #28 - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES / Near the sea

Wednesday April 8, 2015
Inspiration Destination #28 - ALWAYS ANYTHING GOES

Our sponsor for this card is Patties Creations Digital Images

I love living in the Pacific Northwest and being able to go out to the sound. I love water and we live by a river it runs along our property so I do get my water fix when I walk to the back pasture and look down to the river or taking the four legged kid down the dead end road that is along the river, it's beautiful. I had a dear friend who I had known for 35 years who grew up in Missouri and would come out to visit and she loved the pacific ocean and collecting shells. She moved to Washington state and then met her husband. They moved to Montana but they would come out yearly to stay on the ocean.  She passed away 6 years ago and this sentiment was one of the few stamps her husband knew she would of wanted me to have. I have to tell you I did shed a tear making this card. I miss her so much. She was also a card /sb maker.
 I love the ocean any time of the year. In a couple weeks we have a ladies church retreat and it's on the ocean and our hotel faces the water. Love the sound of waves and walking the beach along with the spiritual growth. It's a great time.  I thought of this as I made my card.
The image for this card is Seashell border 2  I loved coloring the shells and I wanted the sentiment to be on its side. I think it gives a great touch to the card. I have a sand dollar button that I added on top of the twine.   I hope you find time to head over to Inspiration Destination to play along this week. It's always ATG.

This is so awesome...I love the green tone you used here and the sideways sentiment. Really great! Thank you for joining our Challenge last week at Word Art Wednesday. The current challenge is midway and hope you join us again. Leaving you with God's Word to ponder on from Romans 15:4 and it says, "For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope." God bless always!
