Summer HeatWave small Pictures, Images and Photos

We are in the midst of some brutally hot weather here in the Northwest- 105*....Too hot for this old lady :) Thank God for air conditioning! Normally when it's hot here it at least cools off in the evenings, and it doesn't last for too long...but this time we're setting some new records- highs and lows...I'll be glad when it's over :) and just as an FYI- Heart & Soul Rubber Stamp Co. is going to be closed for most of the month of August...but the good news is- that when it 'starts up' again in September there will be some new images to show. It's time for a vacation- and to take my 'baby girl' off to college...she's raring to go :) God Bless & Stay Cool <><

Birthday Journal

So I have the sweetest niece who is just crazy over lime green. anything. lime green. So for her upcoming birthday I made her this fun notebook/journal/whatever. I 'cheated' a little by buying one already made at Michaels ( for $1.00!!! ) then I just added my own background papers and stamps. That's a SU circle stamp, and I also stamped it on all of the inside lower corner pages. I think she'll like it- along with her lime green beach chair & beach towel! happy birthday (soon) miss megan :)

God Bless America ?

One of my favorite scriptures is : "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14....and one of my favorite Heart & Soul stamps is: "God has already blessed America...how about if America blesses God?" Strangely NOT one of my best sellers :) I guess it's hard to think about how to bless God- He already has everything He needs! This concept was foreign to me until a few years back when one of my former pastors explained it like this: "we bless God by living in His will, by loving our neighbors as ourselves, and by loving Him with our whole heart, soul & mind." Sounds right to me! So thank you, Lord, for all the awesome blessings You shower on the United States of America- let us never grow Independent from You! <><
