Merry Christmas!

I decided to try this blog thing. Ü I'm not sure where I will go with this, but thought it could be a place where family and friends could keep up with what is going on in our family as well as my stamping adventures.

I won't be able to post every day, but will try to check in often.

Here is a gift I made for our Pastor and his wife. They have been such a blessing to us and we appreciate so much all their prayers for us over the past two years as we have gone through some tough times.

I framed it in black, but my scanner blurred the image when I scanned it, so took it out to scan.
To make I typed the verse sections on MSWord and printed on ivory naturals cardstock by SU! I then stamped Canvas background stamp with caramel ink and sponged with carmel. Then I stamped the flowers from Roses in Winter & Watercolor Garden ll in burgundy, caramel & artichoke. I mounted the verse sections twice on coordinating cardstock. I cut the A-S-K from the Cricut "Stamped" cartridge. I cut 2 from cardstock and one from patterned paper (Diane's Daughters) to give a chipboard look. I mounted the letters on the verse sections, added ribbon and metal accents from SU!'s modgepodge hardware and then centered them onto a piece of patterned paper that fit my frame (purchased from Dollar General).


PS On a sad note, my dear friend Kim passed away today. I want to thank those of you who have been praying for her and her family.


  1. This is beautiful Debbie! I'm sure they loved it!

    I'm so sorry about Kim. I was keeping up with her on her Caring Bridge site and was so sad to hear the news when I checked in today. Todd and Logan sound like amazing people.

  2. Merry Christmas, Debbie! I think your blog is AWESOME! I bookmarked it so I will be checking in! Your pastor's gift is beautiful. I bet it is hanging in a special place right now!
