I host a Stamp Club every year as part of my stamping business. Each year, I try to make different gifts for them for Christmas and for participating in the Club at the end of the year. I made these 2 years ago as gifts for my friends. This is pretty simple, but as I was looking through
my photograph files, I found this and thought I would share it here on my Blog.
This gift is a cd holder and I included the lyrics and burned cds of music I downloaded off the internet so people could plug them in and sing along if they wanted too.
The Stampin' Up! stamps I used for this project was AYC3, Lovely as a Tree, and BIG Circles (I think that is the name of it!)
Here are a few more details:
Cardstock and Ink: Ballet Blue, Real Red, Glorious Green, Whisper White
Accessories: Lg. & Small Oval punch, Computer, 2 way glue pen, dazzling diamonds.
Now, for my weight loss... I have to say that is has been put on HOLD. I have not gained nor have lost, but have been struggling with having to "THINK" about planning my food. The LORD is giving our family MORE Character Building Opportunities, and it is taking my extra energy just focusing on HIM and getting through the days with a SMILE.
It would be easy for me to fall apart and fall into my old habits of forming bitterness and anger AND eating! But the LORD continually is reminding me that I am in a process of refinement. “The enemy (Satan) comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I (Jesus) have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10 Our family is coming against some great trials right now, I could choose to allow it to destroy us, make us grow further apart...but that would allow the enemy to win, right?
“That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.” 2 Timothy 1:12 (NIV)
I KNOW as I said 2 days ago - Isaiah 43:2-3, WHEN (not if!) you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. WHEN you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.For I am the LORD your God, The Holy One of Israel (Chris or put your name here), your Savior.
I praise GOD that as I walk through these valleys, HE is with me. HE gives me the strength each day and I seek wisdom each moment from Him. I pray that as you face various trials, you will feel His strength, comfort and peace as well.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a blessed day!
