I have 2 more Inspirational cards to share.  This first one was a set of 4 for Penny.  She gave me a great compliment on all the cards I made for her.

I decided to make these 4 a bit more masculine.

The pattern paper is retired.  I have so much of it!  But we have some GREAT papers that would work wonderfully with this layout.
Stamp Set:  Through the Storm
Card stocks: Lemon Grass, Pool Play, and Whip Cream
Dies: Border Details
Banner is hand cut as is the little border at its top.
Ink: Black Licorice

This card is one I REALLY like!  It turned out exactly as I had pictured in my mind.

The Text is from my stock.  I thought it was perfect for  the light houses. I've had it for years and it may be by Stampendous.

The light houses are from the set Anchor Me which was in the Summer Mini and is NOT in the catalog or website.  Darn.  It's a fabulous set! The pattern paper is also from the Summer Mini and not available.
I used some jute from my stash, Vellum paper, some mini light blue eyelets, Candy Apple & Whip Cream card stocks.   Guess this card is 1/2 FSJ and 1/2 other....  

I have a bunch of Scripture and "religious" stamps that I love going back to use and have had them for many years.  So many of the companies that made them have gone by the wayside which is so sad.  I remember when I started stamping about 20 years ago the stamps were all wood mounted.  Then came the Hook & Loop with acrylic blocks that had grooves that had the Loop.  Next it was unmounted on red rubber that we painted with Aleene's Tack It Over and Over.  Now it's cling.  Stamps have come a LONG way.  I have to admit that I do not like the clear stamps and have not had the best stamping with them.  What do you use? I love our American made red rubber with the cling!

Both your cards are super cute. I love the lighthouse card and inscription. So appropriate for many things!
