Lost and Found

Hello, Sweet Friends!! Today, I am sharing a few projects I created using the Sweet N Sassy Stamps new release The Shepherd's Voice.  This versatile set is perfect for bible journaling, mixed media, card making and more!

I adore the beautiful shepherd and sheep images of this set! Such a beautiful visual to remind us of the way our Heavenly Father cares for us.  I am so thankful for a God who pursues His lost sheep, who has given me opportunity after opportunity to come back to Him.  I am thankful for a God who came for me and took my debit.  I am thankful for a God who now tells me to follow Him, and is patient in my stumblings.  I am thankful for a relentless grace only Christ gives, because I am a relentless vagabond always seeking to jump ship. He is faithful when I am not; He is constant when I am not; He is everything when I am nothing; yet, He says I am His and that is EVERYTHING! (adapted from TB Laberge/She Rises)

My bible journaling (seen above) features The Shepherd's Voice along with Sunshine Girl and Bitty Minnie alphabets.  

My card, also features The Shepherd's Voice and the Stamp of the Month, Sentimental Wordfetti.  Jut a little dry embossing, a colored image and a sentiment--quick, simple and perfect for just about any occasion!

Thanks for stopping today; be blessed!

My project for today features the sets Thrill of Hope and Christmas Wishes.  Using water color paper, I started by stamping and embossing the deer images.  I created a circular mask using a piece of copy paper with a circle die cut window.  Next, I added the trees using Ranger distress ink. I sponged ink around the edges and then added the sentiment and some sequins to finish things off.

My second card uses Thrill of Hope along with Home for the Holidays. After stamping and embossing the lab image from Home for the Holidays, I added the trees and several layers of distress inks to create a antique-y look.  Once dry, I added some red glitter glue to sparkle up the trees and some snowflakes.

Freedom in Christ!

Happy Monday, Sweet Friends!! I'm thinking about freedom after a wonderful weekend that kicked off with July 4th last week!  Our fireworks got rained out, but that didn't stop us from celebration and
good old family time!

The bigger story, however, is the freedom we find in Christ.  As I've reflected on my last year....the places I've been, the freedom I've found...the peace I've is all because of Christ.  He is a chain breaker, the author of all freedom.  Seven short months ago, I was depleted from chemotherapy and recovering from mastectomy surgery, discovering life, God's mercy and grace and figuring out how to move forward.  At each turn, I've been met with the truth of God's word, I've seen His hands and feet and my life has been transformed.  This freedom is everything. To know I am His and He is mine.  I pray you know this freedom yourself!!

I love working in my hymnal and using stamps from Sweet N Sassy Stamps!  For this layout, I used Freedom in Christ, Typewriter Blocks Alpha and Texture Tiles 1.

Freedom in Christ is a powerful and versatile set!  Here I've combined it with Doodle Florals, Forever and Always and Thoughtful Words.
