Hello Friends!! I hope this post finds you all well!!  It seems like time just keeps on flying by.  It has been busy here which I am sure makes the time fly even faster but just the same it is flying by.  We are already in the 5th month of the year!  How can it be?

Today I am popping in to share a card I created for this month's Shining the Light challenge ODBDSLC286 Just Say Thanks.  It seems like such an appropriate month as we thank our teachers at the end of the year or Thank our mothers on Mother's Day.  A simple thank you goes a long way and brightening up the day of the recipient.

Here is a card I created using the stamp set Beauty:

ODBD Stamps Used: Beauty

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Julie, Robin, and Diana or the ODBD Blog here.

Being thankful isn't just for the Thanksgiving holiday. Scripture tells us to be "thankful in everything, in all circumstances" (1 Thessalonians 5:18). When we find ourselves overwhelmed with burdens and worried about tomorrow, we can praise God for who he is and his promise to never leave us or forsake us. We have been blessed with the free gift of salvation and eternal life!

Thanks for stopping by and for all your kind comments!! They are so appreciated!!

Hello Friends!!  I hope this post finds you all well!  I can't believe it is now May!  Time is flying!!  It appears Virginia is skipping spring right into summer with its very warm temperatures.  It is beautiful, however, with the green grass, budding trees, and growing flowers (daylilies, irises...and etc.).

Today I am popping in to share this month's Shining the Light challenge at ODBD, "Just Say Thanks"  As the school year comes to a close, I decided to make a thank you card for a teacher using this month's new release stamps and dies: Notebook Paper, Clipboard, Seeds of Knowledge, and A+ Apples.

ODBD Stamps Used: Seeds of Knowledge

While it is a more CAS card for me, I do like how it turned out.  The new dies and stamps were so fun to use.

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Julie, Robin and Diana. If you would like to join us for the challenge, please see challenge details and a linky for adding your creation here.

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