ODBD Bread Basket

Thursday, August 11, 2016
Today I am sharing a personalized bookmark card I created with the August Release from Our Daily Bread Designs.  Making cards personal is what makes making cards even more special.  Have you ever noticed when you go to buy a card, you can't find the right one that says it all.  The Alphabet dies from ODBD has really assisted in making my cards even more personal. The bookmark on this card detaches.  The image on the bookmark is created with the Birdhouse stamp and masking to a narrow scene.  

The other products used on this card are the  new Trellis strip die, Vintage Borders dies, Bookmark dies, Pierced Ovals dies, Pierced Rectangles dies, Double Stitched Rectangles dies, Lavish Layers, and Pastel Paper Pack.

The verse on this card is one we often here but do we really pay attention to what it really means.

Think about how God's love is, even though we have sinned against Him.  He is so patient with us, and He isn't easily angered (Exodus 34:6). Instead of being so easily angered with us.  He sent His Son to die for us because God loves us so much. He made a sacrifice. He gave his only Son to the world (John 3:16).  Love is sacrificing and when you love someone, you put their needs before yours...even if they've hurt you or angered you, be patient with them because love is patient.

How are your relationships with others?  What love do you have for them?  Do you love them unconditionally and Biblically, or do you love them when you feel like it, depending on your circumstances or how they treat you?  Do you love without expecting anything else in return?  Always remember, God loves you even though you are a sinner. (Romans 5:8)

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your comments.  Have a blessed day!!
