When you stop to think of all the blessings you have, what do you come up with?  I know how often do we do this?  We're so busy with our to-do list, kids, work, etc.  I got a chance to stop today to think about my many blessings.  One of them is my son Ben.  I've been following his blog and I can't believe what he writes.  I'm truly in awe sometimes in his ability to put into words his thoughts.  He has me thinking a lot about my walk with the Lord. 
Here is a link to his site again, I know, but check out the video he posted.
I have another card to post today.  It was for the color challenge today.  It was a second card.
 This is a retired SU set called Best Blossoms but is one of my favorite retired sets. I just had to stamp with it today. It was calling me......LOL

I stamped with razzleberry then used scallop circle punch on the flowers. Then I used a sponge to add the pacific point color. I stamped the base with olive leaves in the corners. The flowers were added with dimensionals. I added a blue flower with a pearl then the thanks stamp. I loved the look of this Victoria lace from SU. The design paper is retired SU called Cottage Wall. This paper is perfect for this challenge.  Did you notice that the current design paper called Sunny Garden has the same types of designs but new colors?
Anyway here's my card.
So I'm wondering if you've come up with some things that are blessings for you?  Ponder it a while, I'm sure you'll have a long list of them.  Everything we do, everything we are and will be is because of God.  If it weren't for Him we wouldn't be here.  I love knowing I'lm his daughter and He loves me more than anyone here on earth.  Something to think about.............
Blessings to you,

I, too, love that stamp set. I'll have to dust my set off and ink it up soon. Did you ever notice that the leaves stamp matches the little leaves sizzlet die?

Yes, I praise God for my blessings especially for my four energetic children (Two will be returning to school next week and one will be starting kindergarten.) There are so many people less fortunate than we are.

I am in Western PA. Someday I'd like to take a road trip and stamp with you.
