Half Way Point of 52 Weeks of Gratitude!

Can you believe we are halfway through the year and halfway through Inspired Stamps 52 Weeks of Gratitude?!  I can't either!!!  I have thoroughly enjoyed these Sunday posts.

This week's scripture is the wellspring of a Christian's gratitude to Christ.  Without His grace, we would be lost for an eternity but through His grace we can be redeemed for eternity.  The scripture stamp is Ephesians 2:5.

Week 25 of 52 Weeks of Gratitude

Thanks for stopping by to see my weekly card for the Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude! We are featuring Acts 5:29 Single Stamp this week.
I can't say it enough, I love how clearly these acrylic stamps stamp!  I also love always having a great scripture in stamp form ready to create a card for a friend.

I hope you are joining us in this weekly journey!  I also pray your summer is off to a great start!

Quirky Wedding Card

This is a card that came together by using the clutter on my desk!  I know you know what I mean.  All those little leftovers from past projects.  Items you are considering throwing away because it's such pain to  put them away.  I have been hanging onto this 7Gypsies book cover forever, just waiting on the "right " project.  I decided this little vintage "snapshot" from Crafty Secrets would look cute on it with the sentiment below.

When I had that part done, it reminded me of some friends who are getting married soon so I decided then that it was meant to be a wedding card.  I used a premade card base from MAMBI and then added the flower sticker and a few paper buds.  The stained seam binding ribbon tied it all together!

Week 24 of 52 Weeks of Gratitude

This card was born out of my desire to stray from my "usual" colors.  I actually love this color combo now!  It was created for Inspired Stamps using the Psalm 139:23 stamp.

I am thankful on this Father's Day that my 88 year old Dad is still with us and that God chose to make me his daughter.  He has had a difficult time adjusting to being dependent on his kids the last year because of diminishing health but he always comes back to how much he loves and appreciates his 5 children.  Thank you Daddy for raising us to love the Lord and to be strong individuals!

Gratitude for 50 Years

Welcome to Week 23 of 52 weeks of Gratitude with Inspired Stamps.This week's scripture really speaks to me as today is my half century birthday!  I was blessed and privileged to be raised in a home by deeply faithful Christian parents.  I have seen Him perform His Word throughout the years. No matter the trials I have gone through in my 50 years,  God truly has watched over the words spoken into my life and has performed His promises in my life and will continue to do so throughout the years I have left in this world.

I really girly-ed up this card since it's my day and I love all the elements in this card. The scripture stamp is a $3.99 single scripture stampJeremiah 1:12
