Blessed!!!


I truly feel God has blessed me in so many ways, and count my blessings regularly. We just got back from a 3 day camping trip, which always reminds me of God's creativity and power. We were surrounded by gorgeous red-headed woodpeckers, wild turkeys, and mule deer. We had a fabulous rain storm one day, and gorgeous blue skies another. Wild flowers were everywhere, and we had just the right amount of relaxation.

This Verse, I John 3:1, from the Our Daily Bread Children of God set, just spoke to me when I got home. I'm always amazed that God chose me to be one of His. Always!! So I got right to work in making a card.
I love Memory Box papers. So I thought I'd pair these soft colors from the Sweetbay set with this I John 3:1 sentiment. The edges were all ink distressed with Frayed Burlap (Ranger Distress Ink), and I sewed around them too. The button is from My Mind's Eye, and the swirls are Stampin' UP! diecuts. The cross charm is from Blue Moon that I purchased at Michaels, the ribbon is Papertrey, and the border is from a Martha Stewart Punch.

I hope you all are having a wonderful week, and that you have a Blessed Easter Holiday.
Happy Stamping!!
Tosh
