Always Give Yourselves Fully




In today's card I took a Martha Stewart Lattice Punch and modified it (on the card it is actually two pieces) to make it look like a real piece of lattice. I added a touch of plant like ribbon to add to the effect. I also tried my hand at using some of those popular flower punches to create faux hydrangea... I had a blast putting this one together! And isn't that what it is about?

Speaking of having fun... the scripture set I used today is from a recent release by ODBD, Serve the Lord. I have always found it hard to find appropriate stamps to use as encouragement for all those who help in the church. This set is perfect for that and I know this one will get plenty of use creating thank you cards for all of my VBS helpers! Thanks as always for reading! Blessings...
