Inspired Stamps 52 weeks of Gratitude

This week Inspired Stamps scripture verse is Deuteronomy 31:8. I choose blues and blacks for my colors to fit my mood. I am having a hard time not being dismayed or depressed. I found out that my foot has a condition that basically the nerves are gone crazy and it could be months before it is even semi normal. The only "cure" is physical therapy. I am trying really hard to see God's plan in all of this. It has been a very long 3 months since this all started. I do know that if I will just trust in God all will be well in his time. Sending hugs & prayers to everyone.

52 weeks of Gratitude

Hi All Welcome to another week of 52 weeks of Gratitude with Inspired Stamps. This week we are using  1Cor 13:4-8. I had fun making the ATC for this week. I almost laughed when I saw this weeks scripture because this is sooooo not me right now. Especially the patient part. I am still dealing with a foot that won't heal so life is more challenging. I am learning sympathy for those that will have to stay in a wheel chair and how hard it is to do things that I took for granted before. I hope you can play along with us.

52 weeks of Gratitude

Welcome to 52 weeks of Gratitude with Inspired Stamps. This week we are focusing on Ephesians 5:20. This verse is very fitting for me this week. I am still dealing with my bad food and trying really hard to give thanks to the Lord for all that he has given me. My ATC is inside a ATC frame card that you can at your local hobby store. I started with stamping the scripture verse than clear embossing it. I then clear embossed the swirls and used different distress inks on it. For the frame I first sparayed with inks than stamped the swilrs. The last touch is the ribbon held by Helmar 450 which is great glue and doesn't show through the ribbon once dry. This veiw show the sparkle and above is a better view of the front.
