sweet stems

Good morning everyone! Did you all get through your Monday okay? My day actually went better than I anticipated and I got a card made...yay!

This card is for my stamp club tomorrow night (so if you are coming...you know one thing you'll be making). One of the nice things about being a SU! demo is that the demo website has tons of ideas for cards, scrapbook pages and the like. It makes planning for an event pretty darn easy!

This card is made with the Sweet Stems set and Thank You single stamp. Add a little Raspberry Tart patterned paper along with Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, and Kiwi Kiss card stock and you have a pretty thank you card. I popped the flowers up with some dimensionals to give the card a little extra dimension and the paper piercing in the corners make it elegant. Easy schmesy!

Awhile back my friend, Sarah, sent me a fun daily calendar that has a Psalm each day along with a little comment. I've been wanting to share one with you guys for a little while so here goes...

God is for me. Psalm 56:9
Such breathtaking information in such a short sentence.

Isn't that something that we all need to remember when times get tough (and they are tough for some right now). God IS for me...good times, bad times, and all the time inbetween! Yay!

Anyway, I hope you all have a super Tuesday! I'll show you my final project for stamp club tomorrow.
