ODBD Bread Basket

Thursday, June 12, 2014
Hello Friends!!  I hope you are all enjoying your week.  The week seems to be so much longer when you are confined to the couch with only my daily Physical Therapy and exercises to occupy my time.  I have to say, however, that I have been so blessed to have my parents staying with me to help me as well as my girls.  While creating takes much more time with all the pain and inconvenience of being on the couch, I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to create to help pass the time and give me a feeling of purpose.

Here is one I created using Our Daily Bread Designs- Rose Bouquet and Cherry Blossom as well as the ODBD Decorative Vase die.

 After die cutting the vase and raising the raised portion of the die, I embossed it in silver. The designer paper is My Mind's Eye-Happy Day. The embossing folder is Anna Griffin-Poppies. The border along the bottom is Spellbinders Curved Borders one.  The oval at the top is Imperial Gold Labels 4.

I want to thank my loving daughters again for helping me get everything I need and bringing it to me on the couch. I am so thankful for the patience and helpfulness!! I am so blessed!!

Ephesians 5:20
Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; Ephesians 5:20

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

I have so much to be thankful for, we all do!  We have so many things we take for granted...each step...each breath...waking up to a new day...Thank you for another day, Lord!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a blessed evening!!
