Encourage a Friend

I love using scripture verses on cards to friends.
 I did make this to tell a friend "Thank You" but I wanted to share it with you before I put it in the mail.  I love this verse and there is a song that goes with those words so I am finding myself singing that now that I have stamped it. The verse is from a new set of stamps by Layers of Color stamps. 
 The flower and leaves are stamps from PaperTrey, Ink. This just might be my most favorite flower stamp.  I colored that with Copic markers.  That great doily is from a set of doilies by Martha Stewart that I found at Joanns Craft store and those papers are new from Die Cuts With a View. The entire collection is soooo cool.
And for some photos...
 We stopped along the California coast - this view is at Fort Bragg.  I loved the color of the water. 
 Another view
 And, the reason we stopped at Fort Bragg is the wonderful and amazing Glass Beach.  Yes, the sand is more polished glass then sand.  The pieces are really small, but fun nonetheless.  The story goes it was an old dump or something.
And, how is this for a weathervane? LOVED it.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
