Multiple Blessings

When I stop long enough to really count my blessings, the list is literally endless.  I am so grateful for all the blessings in my life.  My family (husband, kids, extended family), my friends, my church/pastor, and all the things with which I have been blessed.  I really try not to take any of it for granted.  Take time today to count your multiple blessings.

This brings me to my next card.  The photos didn't really capture the folds in this card.  I am entering it in multiple challenges.  I hope you will take the time to stop by these exciting blogs to see the beautiful creations all the participants have entered.  It's also a lot of fun to visit new blogs, leave comments, and follow new blogs if you like what you see.  If any of you choose to "follow" my blog, please let me know, and I will do the same for you.  I'm very grateful for followers.
OK, so the first entry for this little card was the awesome weekly challenge at:  http://www.simonsaysstampblog.blogspot.com/ where the challenge was to make a multi-fold creation.  My card has a slanted fold in the front as well as a folded pocket where I stuffed in some vintage trinkets for my photo.  You can read all about this challenge and see the awesome entries by clicking here:  http://simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2011/09/thanks-for-all-your-fabulous-entries-to.html and don't forget to check out their store here:  http://www.simonsaysstamp.com/ where you can purchase all the hottest items for scrapbooking, stamping, card making and more.

The next challenge I entered this week was at http://mymumscraftshopchallenges.blogspot.com/ where the challenge was LAYERS.  This card has that and more.  I love layering papers and adding dimension to everything.

The other challenge I entered was Challenge #49 Vintage/Shabby Chic theme at the fun blog: http://anythingchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/09/challenge-49-vintageshabby-chic.html and there are so many beautiful creations.  Stop by and visit them all.  You won't be disappointed.
 
Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  I appreciate comments and followers, and will always do the same for you.  I hope you get a chance to check out these links for inspiration.

Counting my Multiple Blessings,

Karen
