What a great scripture! Come BOLDLY to the Lord! Yes!

I don't know why I didn't just sponge green on the edge of the folded hands image; the card front is a bit too thick as the patterned cardstock is thick.

There's nothing precisely wrong with this card, but I didn't actually translate this scripture before stamping it. In my English version, the end reads "and the time of the singing of birds has come." However, this Spanish translation has only "the time of singing has come." I know enough Spanish to figure this out, but if I were fluent, I think as I was mounting the stamp and looking right at it, I would have noticed the difference. Oh well!

More Graduation Mice

I had some extra mouse images .... I tend to stamp more images than I need so that if I make a coloring error, etc, I have more already to use. I had discovered they looked really cute sitting on top of a mortarboard (here), but I didn't want to waste these first images. :-)

Super Simple Birthday Cards!

It doesn't get much easier than this! I had these cuttled birthday backgrounds made when visiting a friend, before I owned my own cuttlebug. I simple brayered a darker shade over the panels, and the rest is obvious. :-)

Horse card

Friends of ours have a recycling business, and at there annual sale, I picked up a roll of super thin wood laminate. It's easy to cut with scissors, and will run through a cuttlebug (though is rather fragile, so pieces of the laminate will sometimes break.

Give thanks!

I've had this cute paper for a few years, but never used it until this card. This scripture is repeated all throughout the Old Testament. I always know a person is not familiar with the Old Testament when they say that it's all about the law, and not about grace. In fact, grace, love, and the goodness of God are all over it!

Korean Thank You

I have been unable to find a Korean to translate phrases or scriptures from English to Korean for me, but I finally have decided that I've found enough evidence that this is the correct way to say thank you. :-)

I found it interesting that the alternating of blues and yellows really made a difference in the overall look of this design!

I'm not sure why I bother posting such simple journals, but perhaps it will inspire someone to create their own! Even if without a bind-it-all, wallpaper is great stuff to cover any notebook with. It's easy to work with, and protects the covers from "stuff" that can get on them when placed carelessly on a table or wherever. :-)
I am getting ready to order paper from a local printshop. I'm not sure it's worth the expense, but I have them use 24 wt. paper which is thicker than copy paper, and means the writing doesn't show through on the other side, which I really like.

Ordination cards

Someone expressed interest in purchasing an ordination card today, and I realized I hadn't posted these last two cards. They are identical in design to a couple of others I have made, just a change in cardstock used.

Graduation card

I'm don't know what company to credit for the bicycle; it was in a handful of stamped images from a friend. I thought it fit well with a graduation theme!
Edit: Thank you, Mary Frances, for your encouragement and for the company credit on the bicycle! Art Impressions created the image!

Poor Charlie Brown!

I needed a humor break tonight, so here are a couple of Charlie Brown cards. It's a design I've made before; since I have two stores in which I sell cards, I decided to make some for the second place.
