Hi Everyone! I hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day!! When you read this post. I will have left to go camping with the family for 5 days. My hubby thought it would be fun to take me away with the family to celebrate Mother's Day. I have scheduled a few posts for while I was gone so if anyone stopped by, there was something to see.

If you have not seen the post about the Inspiration Blog Prize, click here. I really want you all to have the opportunity to win 2 DP pads of paper from SU (your choice up to a $9.95 value for each).

The card I have to share with you today is using the new releases from Our Daily Bread Designs- God Bless America and In God We Trust for the WT217 Challenge to use kraft paper on your card whether it be a neutral, border, or for your backdrop and SC227. I saw this distressed looking dp with stars at Michael's from My Mind's Eye and I knew I had to make a distressed card with these patriotic sets! I love this saying from George Washington. I think so often we forgot that our founding father's relied on God and the Bible for guiding our nation. With all the war, economic depression, etc. are we still trusting or are we pushing God out? So many of our religious liberties such as prayers in School, In God We Trust on money (I was amazed that some of our new coins no longer have this printed on them), and etc. is being removed. I sometimes fear the outcome.
Card Recipe:
Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs- In God We Trust, God Bless America
Paper: My Mind's Eye 29th Market St, Bitter Chocolate, Kraft, Watercolor paper
Accessories: Lone Star Buttons by Jesse James Co. craft hemp, distresser, oval nestabilities, cuttlebug embossing template, MS stars Border punch
Thanks for stopping by and for leaving your sweet comments. Don't forget that Tuesday, May 12 is the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. There is some awesome prizes too be had!!!!! What a fun challenge!!
I look forward to visiting your blogs when I return!! Have a great day!!
