I am so happy to greet my two new followers and those of you who always stop by just to check out my cards. My Blogger stats show that I am getting more visitors every day and I just wanted to say THANKS for stopping by!!
Today's card is ANOTHER GIVE AWAY!! Same rules as yesterday - just leave a comment and/or sign up to follow my blog. This GIVE AWAY ends on Sunday June 17th.
My card is based on CPS Card Sketch 269 - Part 1 and I've also submitted it to the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
All Sorts of Challenge - Ice Cream Colors
The card stock is by Recollections, the sentiment is by Studio G, and the die cut by my all time favorite vendor Spellbinders! As you can see I made a matching envelope for this card as well. I also enhanced the borders of the interior pages by stamping them with my Martha Stewart punch. I dedicate this card to online friendships - yes that's to YOU who is reading this. This card is for you!
Before I log off I wanted to share 2 things with you. Those of you who read my blog yesterday may be encouraged by something I read shortly after I posted that blog. It's something written by one of my favorite Card Makers Becca from Amazing Paper Grace. Click here for her story which was suprisingly similar to mine i.e. the thoughts and the feelings. However I absolutely love her attitude of believing that "something better is along the way"
Secondly I wanted to share this song by Bishop Hezekiah Walker called Faithful is Our God. I listen to it all the time on Pandora (internet radio) but today when I heard the words "I'm reaping the harvest God's promised me, take back what the devil stole from me", I realized that I had allowed the devil to steal my joy, my hope, my faith, my trust - almost my everything really because of what I went through these past 18 months. I love the idea that I can take it back(!!) "I rejoice today, for I shall recover it ALL!"
