Inspire and be Inspired!

We are back from our trip to Arkansas. The car didn't really break down but we couldn't drive it once we got to Springfield, Missouri, because it leaked antifreeze and would overheat if we didn't get that taken care of. We were blessed that Dan noticed the leak and that we knew a friend there who could suggest where to take our car to be looked at. Otherwise we could be stuck in the middle of nowhere and really be in a fix. Anyhow, we got the car kinda fixed enough to drive there and back. Dan, who prides himself at fixing our Hondas, did a minor fix and adjustment on the car on the way back from Horseshoe Bend, AR. However, more work still needs to be done on it and also on our other car. I remember once a preacher said, "Automobile, the thief will break in and steal and rust will destroy." I just have to keep reminding myself to look to the One who is in total control and enjoy the other abundance of life like stamping and stay happy even when the cars aren't cooperating!!!

Ty camped out for the first time in my friend's backyard. He had a blast! He also went fishing with Dad. As far as Dan is concerned, he didn't sleep too bad either. Me? I had a great time hanging and talking and figuring out how to use different stamping tools that I do not own and learned new things from my stamping friends in Arkansas.

On the way back, we stopped at Fantastic Caverns. It was a little too pricey for the itty bitty ride thru the cave. I thought there would be more to it. But all in all, it was a fun and somewhat adventurous trip for all of us. Great time was had by all! Although, we are definitely happy to be back without having to rent a car and without being stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Now to post a card for today.

This card was published in VSN. Background was done using Simple Sumi technique found in TJ Newsletter, October 2005. The stamped image is by Innovative Stamp Creation. It was done on a frozen juice can lid. I swiped some VersaMark on the lid and embossed with Tim Holtz's distressed EP. Then stamped the image using StazOn ink. There is definitely lots of texture going on here. Fun card to make!

Have I inspired you today?!? Thanks for stopping by! Until next time!
