The Exalting Christ Award is a specialized award started by the Devotional and Inspirational Blog "Women to Women Sharing Jesus". Diane began this blog to give women the opportunity to grow in their faith and share with others. It is very uplifting and inspirational for me. The award is given to bloggers who are an example of honoring and exalting Jesus Christ to others. I was given this award by Kim. Kim is the sweetest and I have really enjoyed getting to know her on the Our Daily Bread Design Team where she is currently a guest dt member. She always knows how to make you smile, lift your spirits up and share her love of Jesus in all she does! Thanks for being such a special friend Kim! The rules of this award is to pass this award on with the rules posted.

1. Name 5 people to whom you would like to offer this award with the posts to their blogs.

2. Contact the above people and let them know you have left them the award so they can post it on their blogs.

3. Invite them to permanently display the Women Sharing Jesus Blog Badge (found on my sidebar) on their blogs with the Women to Women sharing Jesus link..

For this award I would like to personally award this badge to Kelley the owner of Our Daily Bread Designs (My Boss Lady and Friend) who began to make stamps to sell as a ministry and a way of sharing her love of Jesus. She tirelessly serves others and has a heart made of gold! Her love for God shows in the stamps she creates and her everyday generous and kind spirit. Thanks for being you and being such an example for me Kelley!!

I would also like to pass it on to the entire Our Daily Bread Designs team (Bread Basket), Angella, Jane, Lorelie, Amy, Judy, Angie, Angel, Betty, Becca, Tosh, Kim, Sandee, Dina, Sita, and Laurie with whom I laugh with, cry with, share prayer concerns with, and share my love of stamping and Jesus.

If you have a chance, please visit their blogs. They are all amazing people and crafters. You will be so glad you did!!

And now....for my Spiral Whisper New Release Card! The image is a new release available TODAY at Spiral Whisper. It is such a fun set with so many neat images that would even work for masculine cards!

The dp I used is from My Mind's Eye. The dry embossing is using and argyle template from Sizziz. I used prisma color and gamsol for the coloring. The candle border was created using an EK Success Punch. I typed the sentiment on the computer using Microsoft Word. The tag is from the Spellbinders Ribbon Trio die set.

Thanks so much for stopping by and bearing with what was suppose to be short post and ending up to be very long. I so appreciate you all! Thanks for your comments. I so appreciate them! Have a great weekend!

What a fabulous card - love the layout and the look on the pooch's face is priceless!!! Love the embossed BG behind him too!!! Congratulations on all the awards and it sounds like you are one very blessed girl!!!

Spyder said...

THis is such a comical card, I love it! The dog looks as if he would like to keep the gift for himself, rather than give it to someone else! Which, when you think about it, we usually do buy gifts we'd like ourselves! (although when I wrap up dog chews at Christmas, I'm quite happy to let them go!) Lovely Card!
(Thank you for stopping by Spyder's Corner!)

The weather looking better!

You are well deserving of the awards! Congratulations. This card is so cute and yet sophisticated -- if that can be in one card. There are lots of layers and textures there to enjoy. Martha Kay

Spyder said...

Pop over to Spyder's Corner. To thank all my followers for their kind support I'm awarding them all a little something for their blogs. No rules with this one, except paste it to your sidebar (if you want!!)
