Refuge and Contraband

Hi Stamping Friends!

Today's card was designed for a friend who will be going on a 2 week mission trip to Fiji.  She wanted to send out some cards asking for friends and family to pray for her.  So I quickly whipped up 15 of these yesterday.

I was in such a hurry to take this pic that I didn't even bother to straighten the ribbon.  It's all wonky!  The cross stamp is from the set called Refuge and Strength.  The green flowers and leaves comes from Thoughts and Prayers.  And the sentiment is from Verve.  That is not the name of the set, that's they name of the (whispers very quietly) "other" stamp company I bought it from.  Did I just hear you GASP?!  I know!  I have to confess.  I do have two other stamp companies that I have purchased from... Verve and Our Daily Bread.  They just have such wonderful Bible verse stamps.  I just couldn't help myself!  Everything else on the card is from SU!  This is the first time I've used my Elegant Bouquet Impressions Folder.  I don't know why I waited so long to purchase it, because it's wonderful!

And since I'm confessing and showing my contraband stamps, I thought I would show you the bookmark I made for all the ladies I went with on my mission trip to the Dominican Republic.

I think I made about 26 of these.  Again the Refuge and Strength cross.  This time paired with the flourish stamp from Friends 24-7.  This verse stamp is also from Verve.  Can you tell I LOVE my Beautiful Wings Embosslit die?  It's hard not to use those adorable butterflies on every card.  They are just the perfect size!  It was so cute, after I had given the each lady their bookmark, some of them asked me to sign the back.  I felt like such an artist.  :)
