"Rough STORMS"

Hello friends, visitors, followers and viewers.
Guess how many days you have before your long weekend or long week.  Most jobs will let you off for the week of JULY 4th.  Yes, that's correct!  I know of some people that will work tomorrow and will not return to their job until July 11th.  Is that awesome or not?
In the mean time, let's see what I've been up to this morning.

 How rough are the storms you've been having?  Are the winds so rough that trees are falling down?  Is the rain so heavy that you're having a flood in your community? Is your health storm  keeping you in and out of the hospital or on your bed of affliction?   Is the storm  another family member passing away in less than a month.  Last year this happened in our family, but a family just this week in my neighborhood, is going through another sister passing away.  They had just had a funeral for one of the sisters in May and now they are planning another one.
Storms are and can be rough...therefore we need to know where our anchor(s) are.
When the wind blow 60 or more miles per hour, do you pray or coward in fear?
When the waters start rising, do you pray or coward in fear?
When you are in the hospital or on your sick bed, do you pray or coward in fear?
When your family members are leaving you behind , do you pray or coward in fear?
You may be one who have not had a rough storm to go through....keep living my friend...there is one out there for you:

Enabler's List for this card
cardstock: Recollection blue and black
specialty paper: Ranger watercolor paper and a sheet of vellum
inks: water colors (yellow, pink, dark blue and light blue) and Hero Arts black pigment
embellishments: silver brads
stamp: Prima, Seashore clear stamp and ART C stamp and cut
Technique: I colored the background to look like the open sea on the water colored paper. Next I stamped the boats in various places.  The sentiment was printed on the vellum, cut down to fit over the top of the Ranger water colored cardstock and then adhered together using the silver brads.  I  cut out two silver anchors and adhered them to the vellum using a sliver brad. This layer was adhered to the black cardstock before adhering it to the blue card base.
