Thanks be to God!

Woo-Hoo!! It's Thursday, and time for another CCEE Stampers Sketch provided by Cindy Haffner!! We'd love to have you participate too. Click HERE to play along.

This card is pretty straight forward. No fancy techniques. Just a lot of diecuts, punches, sewing and flowers. I will tell you though, that the wonderful sentiment I used is a Plain Jane from last month's Verve Release. It's I Corinthians 15:57. And I want to remind you that Verve is Sneak Peeking this month's release today and tomorrow, with the release being Friday evening. There are also some fabulous challenges going on over at SCS, giving you an opportunity to win some Vervalicious images!! Click HERE to see what that's all about.

The weekend is almost here!! Woot!
Hope your week is a fantastic one!
Happy Stamping!

I see with the 48 posts before me that all of the perfect words have already been used in praise of this card. They say that immitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I know that YOU know I love to immitate you, case your work and follow in your footsteps (love you, Tosh). Thank you for sharing your work and allowing me to do my best to immitate one of the best! My stamping world is a happier place because of you.
