Today's challenge was a real challenge as I don't have any maps and only 2 pieces of dp with maps on it all my stash!! It seems impossible with all the paper I have!!
I chose to showcase a quote that I have really grown to understand this summer. "Life's roughest storms prove the strength of our anchors." This summer has been especially challenging to me with my limited abilities and all my pain after my accident this past May. It is during the tough times of life that we realize how strong our faith is. I am so thankful for a God who is much stronger than I to carry me through the tough times. Hope is my anchor!!
This quote is from the Anchor the Soul stamp set at ODBD to be released tomorrow, August 1.
Although this card is more CAS, I had so much fun joining Linda's challenge. Thanks for looking!!

It's when we are at our lowest that there is only one way to go, and that's up, Chris! So sorry that your summer hasn't been what you expected it to be, but just remember that God is with you through even the toughest times you will ever face! Draw closer to Him and he will draw closer to you. Beautiful collage type card! Gorgeous sponging and nice texture too!
