Footprints in the Sand

It was a beautiful day on the Oregon Coast and we took a quick trip out to the beach (it's a 10 minutes drive). Muffin had a blast, really likes the sand and she burnt up a ton of puppy energy! I came home and got inspired to make some Footprints in the Sand cards with this beautiful new set from Our Daily Bread Designs! This set, along with 4 others will be released on October 1st. I'll have a few more sneak peeks to show you soon :)
I love this Footsteps stamp...and the story it tells. Such a beautiful reminder of God's never ending, always present love & faithfulness. If you double click on any of the cards today, you can get a close look at the poem (is it just me or are those tiny little letters on the computer screen getting harder to see everyday, lol!). Here's the inside of the first card ...
This card started out for today's color challenge at SCS, but it just really "needed" chocolate chip, so I had to put the color challenge on hold (rats...I hate it when that happens!). I do like how the Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze & Very Vanilla look together. Very "beachy' ;)
And here's my 3rd card...using Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla ...

and the inside ...

And here is Meg & Muffin at the beach : ) ... and yes, Muffin is wearing a visor, pink with a purple flower! It protects her little nose from getting sunburned , and it looks super cute!
