One of my favorite places to visit, "Stampin' Sisters in Christ" has a challenge this week to make a red, white, and blue card that is a thank you! The scripture verse is :

My card uses a new Flourishes Set, "Country Charm labels" which also coordinates with the spellbinder dies. I used a small flower image to make the patterned paper under the label...it almost reminds me of fireworks! The sentiment on this set is one I was particularly drawn to...I do believe that the power of our words to speak gratitude makes such a difference to us, and to those we live with...or should I say those who have to live with us.
I am so grateful to live in my country, the good ol' U.S.A.!! This past few months we had the opportunity to travel to many other countries, and one of the most thrilling sights is seeing all the flags flown over a government building....and yet the red, white, and blue always stands out to me!
I am thankful for the many comforts I have, the daily dishes, laundry, and sweeping and dusting all made more convenient for me by these little maids called vacuums, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers. I am thankful for a warm soft bed to fall into at night, for covers to pull up to my nose and for the knowledge that an all Sovereign God is tucking me in and watching me sleep. He who never slumbers is more than able to watch over me. I am thankful for so many things...my faith, my family, my freedom that extends so many privileges and freedom to worship being one of the most important. I am thankful to the men and women who have fought to keep these rights for all Americans.
And I am thankful for my friends and stampers who stop by here! God bless you ! Have a wonderful Fourth of July! Ours will be spent in our mountain town home with family in and out. We will take the boat out on the water for a couple of days and maybe watch the fireworks if my husband can stay up that late!! What are your plans?
