Simple Little Note Card

I was so blessed to receive a surprise package in the mail the other day from an on-line friend.  It was filled with all kinds of goodies including stamped images (one of which I used on this card), flowers, die-cut images, ribbons and laces, papers, and more.  What a blessing to get something so wonderful in the mail, and to be able to give all the praise and thanks to the Lord because of the goodness of someone else who simply wanted to be a blessing and encouragement.  God is SO GOOD, and I thank Him for all the dear people He has introduced me to in blogland.  You are all such a blessing in my life, and I am grateful for each of you.

 
I found out that the sentiment is from Our Daily Bread Stamps, so I am SUPER excited to be able to link up this card in their current challenge.  I used a snippet of vintage sheet music for the challenges at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, and Our Daily Bread Designs, some machine stitching, some flowers and leaves (for the challenge at Simon Says Stamp & Show, and a metal key charm.
 
Here is a list of the challenges I'm entering:

There's a special element on my card for each of these fun challenges.  It's fun combining challenges together.  Isn't it?
 
Hope you're all having a great day.  We enjoyed a good work-out at the YMCA, some lunch at Raisin' Canes, too much homeschooling to even talk about, and tonight. . . some family time.
 
Blessings,

Karen
