I'm "Sew" Appreciative

This is a card that could, quite literally, be sent to one of dozens of people.  I have been SO blessed by the support and generosity of all my friends, family, and on-line friends during this ordeal with my shoulder.  God is just SO GOOD to provide me with so many wonderful people in my life who are willing to lend a helping hand.  So, next time you are going through a difficult time, I hope that you receive the same outpouring of love and support that I've been shown through my difficulty.  Praise God for sending those special angels into our lives when we need them the most.  I am so grateful for you all.  Thank you so much to those of you who offered up prayers on my behalf.  My cup runneth over!

This card started with a Lunch Bag Kraft Notecard  to which I added a piece of October Afternoon patterned paper and a scrap of Simple Stories patterned paper that I machine stitched together.  Next, I printed the Vintage Button Card image in brown from the wonderful Diane's Daydream Designs onto a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock.  I also stamped the button card using the Button Boutique Stamp Set from Papertrey Ink and, using this same sweet set, stamped thread spool which I wrapped in DMC floss.  I used a Kaiser Craft wooden dress form from our sponsor, The Scrapping Center, covered with some lace and ribbon around the middle.  I sewed on some Heidi Swapp chipboard letters (SEW) with my sewing machine.  The rub-on (appreciative) is from Melissa Frances, and there's a little decorative cream pearl from Zva Creative.  Other than some Tim Holtz ink, and I think that's about it.

I'm sharing my first card here:

Daydream Designs is one of this week's sponsors at Word Art Wednesday, and I knew I wanted to use the Vintage Button Card to create this sewing related card.  The set, which you can find by clicking on this link: Vintage Button Cards Set, includes several different button cards in both brown and black, and can be sized to meet the needs of your specific project.  They're absolutely DARLING!  You can also find additional scripture sets at Daydream Designs right here in the Dream Team Scripture Sets section. I encourage you to check out all of Diane's adorable images.  The other sponsor this week at Word Art Wednesday Challenge Blog is the Scrapping Center and they're offering a $15 gift certificate.  They offer SO MANY wonderful crafting products that you will LOVE.  I used their Kaisercraft Wooden Dress Form on my first card (above).  So let me just tell's yet another great week to play along at Word Art Wednesday, and I really hope you will join us.  These prizes are AMAZING!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today to take a peek at my projects and say hello.  It's always a blessing to have you visit, and I hope you each have a wonderful week of crafting, sharing, enjoying your families, and just rejoicing in the MANY wonderful blessings God has given to each of us.  We are all SO BLESSED, and it ALL comes from our precious Savior, Jesus Christ.  He gave us the greatest gift ever when He provided a way for us to spend eternity in Heaven  with Him by sacrificing Himself for our sins and paying the price for us to receive eternal life.  For more information on how to know FOR SURE that you're going to Heaven when you die, please check out this link:  You Can Know FOR SURE!
