A Touch From Heaven by Neal Pylant & Christopher Pylant

I have decided to start sharing a few things in my life on here.  One of my loves is reading .  I used to be a librarian along with some other careers.  

I just read an amazing book called "A Touch From Heaven"  It is about a couple who wanted a boy to pass on their name for the next generation. They were blessed to have a beautiful baby boy named Christopher (the co-author of this book) . It tells the story of the trials they went through when Christopher was diagnosed with a brain tumor at a very young age.  
This is a book that once you start you will not be able to put it down.  They share their innermost heart and emotions and how they see a miracle happen.  So if you like a book that keeps your attention then this is the book for you.  Amazon & Barnes and Noble carry this book if you are interested. Thank you for allowing me to share . Hugs, Cathy

It's Summer Card

I made this card for a summer swap.  I made it a 3D card.  I almost quit and threw it away.  But I am stubborn and decided that no card was going to defeat me LOL  Everything on here is a Meljen's digi except the beach bum digi.  There is a lot of glitter on here but it doesn't show up very much.

The cat is Meljen's Beach Kitten

The Sand Castle is called just that~ Sand Castle
The Sun is Meljen's Summer Sun

I would love to tell you where I got the beach bum digi but I don't remember. All the shells were cut out from the Beach Kitten.  And as usual I have to have a butterfly someplace on my cards. I love butterflies.  I hope your summer is going great.  It is between 104 and 110 here, yes we are back in Arizona and I love it. The temps are going to be going higher so I am very grateful for air conditioning though I spend my mornings until about 1 or 2 p.m.on the patio. Thank you for looking and Happy Stamping.  Hugs, Cathy
