Summer Themed Cards

They are finally finished...why does it take me weeks to create what I can teach others to do in just over 2 hours? There is a nice soft couch in an office somewhere with my name on it...and I thought paper crafting was supposed to be my therapy!

Anyhoo, onward and they are:

The focus of this class is mixing and matching patterned papers. I used papers from the Summer Fresh Collection by Simple Stories. 

All supplies are linked below. 
For my buddies here in the OC you can find all of these products at Stamp Fever
For those not enjoying our lovely breeze today, please click on the thumbnail and it will take to Simon Says Stamp, the premier online craft store where you can conveniently add the item to your cart or wish list.

There is such a wealth of wisdom in AW Tozer's writings. My first experience with Tozer came about 35 years ago when I read "The Pursuit of God".  Next to the Bible, this book has had a great impact on my faith and has opened my eyes to the wonderful relationship that God desires to have with each of us.
