Counting My Blessings

DRS Designs just came out with some great images designed for Bible Journaling, but they also work really well on cards and other projects.  One of the images is this Open Bible.  Some girls in my Bible Journaling class wanted an open Bible image to be able to write verse references in and  I passed that on to DRS.  This is great image they came up with.  I have used it on a number of Bible Journaling pages, but this weekend I was playing with it at a crop and this card came to mind..


I stamped the image twice and then trimmed around one of them so I could add pages to the Bible and make it look even more like an open Bible.  I used the Script Font Background to do the main panel and to stamp over the open Bible.  I finished off the card with the Count Your Blessings Greeting.

Fun to make and look at.

By the way, I just want to say that I am definitely blessed and have millions of blessings.  Even when life is tough, we have sooooo much.  God is good!

  3. Wonderfully done! Yes, blessings abound even when you don't think there are any. Love Ann Voskamp's book 1000 Gifts - write 3 things you are grateful for every day and at the end of a year you have 1000 gifts :)
