Have you ever wondered how on earth bloggers decide what to share and show in their posts! I did and I still do! LOL! First it's easier if I'm actually working on something and have something to share! As I looked over my photos of projects, I found what represented what is in my heart today! Of course, tomorrow is Thanksgiving, but I have learned over the past year (and am still learning) that gratitude affects my life in such a profound way that I must practice being grateful everyday. . . even when I don't feel like it! That's actually when it's most important! I highly recommend reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. It was a life changer for me!
As I sit to write today, my heart is full of gratitude . . and the list is long . . .my faith and relationship with my Lord and Saviour Jesus, my family, friends, freedom, provision . . . breath! What's on your list today?
The project that was my inspiration today was created by one of my Impressive In Ink team of demonstrators, Tammy Henderson. She shared this project with us at our last gathering.
Tammy's HINTS: Find a quote or verse in a script that you like and size it to fit your frame. (If you're good at freehanding, go for it!) Slide the printout under the glass and trace with your White Stampin' Chalk Marker. (#132133, $3.50) If you goof, no worries, you can scrub it off with an alcohol wipe or baby wipe and start again! It wipes off the glass even after it's dry with a little more scrubbing so you can actually use your frame for different seasons or occasions!
Tammy also used the Autumn Accents Die to cut out her leaf embellishments!
I have yet another "Gratitude" card to share with you! This sweet and simple card was given to me by Glenda Travelstad at Founder's Retreat. I nearly copied it exactly, only added a bit more color to the tie around the wheat!
