Today's Featured Stamper is Debbie (swldebbie) - what a fun gallery full of beautiful creations...I chose this card and kept the theme of relaxing in the sun, using a Sweet 'n Sassy image I got recently for my birthday. The umbrella has been paper pieced and the sky is sponged using a Papertrey Ink cloud die cut. I also kept the general layout but changed the flowers to a bright yellow sun and moved the sentiment up.
Enjoy your time as Featured Stamper, Debbie, and congratulations!

Brigit I can feel the sand between my toes. Aaah, the stress melts away when you're at the beach. Why do you suppose?
But... it was the sentiment that I needed tonight. I need to rest in His grace and mercy. I've been so emotional the past few days. Thank you for this gentle reminder through your beautiful and serene card.

Hi Bridget, love your sunshine and the yellow circle matting to match it! Beautiful serene scene using great colors and a cute little umbrella! When we lived in Virginia Beach, I remember looking out at the ocean many times to rest in Him, think on His promises and just feel His peace and presence. So relaxing.....

Bridget, this is not only Beautiful, but peaceful and restful as your title says! There's nothing like the beach for me, to take all your troubles away! At the beach, it is as if you can be one with him!!
