B is for Blessings


Hello and welcome to Fabulous Friday with Sugar Creek Hollow. Be sure to drop by and pick up this week's Friday Freebie. This week I have another vintage letter flash card and more fun with digital images and papers. But before I tell you what went into making this card, let me just mention blessings. You probably would have expected my post to be entitled B is for Bicycle. But in my life, B is definitely for blessings. I am keenly aware of how blessed I am and of all the many blessings in my life. I thank God every day for sending Jesus to redeem me and lead me to Him. I thank Him for things as simple as having a clean, dry bed to sleep in and enough food to eat. And I try to give back, to share what I have and to call others to be mindful of their blessings and the need to share with our brothers and sisters who are struggling to have enough food and to have shelter. I believe that those who have been given much are called to give back just as much. Just something to reflect in this season of Lent.

But I guess you came here to find out about my card. Everything you see here, with the exception of the SU Basic Black and Creamy Caramel CS, started out as a digital image and was printed on my home printer. The DP is from Designer Digitals. I changed the brown hue a bit to better match up with the Creamy Caramel CS. The vintage word studies sheet is from The Graphics Fairy's free vintage images. I digitally imposed it into the background of the digital flash card. I made it more transparent so it wouldn't overpower the flash card. I printed it, trimmed it out and distressed it a bit. The edges of the DP were scissor distressed and sponged with Close to Cocoa ink. The DP was stamped in Basic Black with the A B & C from SU's Collage Alphabet. The embossing folder used here is from Stampin' Up and the border punch is Martha Stewart. Buttons from my stash and a little embroidery floss topped off this creation.

Hope you will take time to stop by Sugar Creek Hollow to pick up the Friday Freebie and then swing by the blogs of the rest of the design team to see their Fabulous Friday creations.
