I will finish sharing my other challenges from my group but I wanted to get this sketch challenge that I did over at Our Daily Bread Designs posted today. You have until Sunday evening if you want to play along.

This card is going out to my brother for his birthday, He is going through some health issues and I am hoping that this sentiment is good for both birthday and what he is going through.

Our daily bread designs -- Surging Sea and All occasions sentiment stamp sets, image colored with distress inks and water and watercolor paper
Stickles -- waterfall added to the water
October Afternoon -- Seaside papers
Fiskars -- Upper crest border punch with added gold ink
Brad on compass

I have not been feeling well ever since Sunday it gets better and worse depending on what I am doing. I have started some new medicine so I am wondering if that is what is causing it but my hubby and best friend had a touch of it too, just not as bad as I have it so I really don't know what is going on, so hard when you want to do things but your body is telling you no.

Hope you all are well and thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and sharing your thoughts,

Oh, Connie, I'm so sorry that you aren't feel well. That sure isn't fun, and I pray that God will restore you to health again, along with your hubby and best friend. What a wonderful card for your brother. I agree that it is a handsome card with this ship, and what a precious sentiment for him as he celebrates his birthday but also as a reminder that God is always there to care for us in all the little ways. Hugs, sweet friend, and take it easy! Hugs!
