My first Box Card

So, I've been wanting to try out a box card and knew that I wanted to do one for my Sister-in-law, Laura. If anyone deserves this much die cutting and arranging, it's the mother of my 5 nephews and 1 niece and wife of my brother (oh boy) :)
I used three different Fun Stampers Journey stamp sets and die sets. Spring Filled stamp set, Spring Blooms Die set, Tattered Flowers stamp set and die set, and Flower Layers stamp set and die set. Lots of rhinestone bling centers and

Thanks for coming back for a look and I hope to not take such a long break again. If you need any of these sets to make your own (tons of tutorials on the process already done on You Tube) please go to my FSJ coach website and try a little shopping with me.

It's Good Friday!

What a very important day today is. It is like Valentine's Day/Weekend for all who believe. We were given the greatest gift of love...Jesus dying...God sacrificing His Son, all for us to have our unforgivable sins forgiven so that we might live eternally in Heaven when our time comes if we choose to ask forgiveness and give our lives to the Lord. May your Good Friday and Easter Sunday be most blessed. Thank you for stopping by.

Almost Easter!!

Well, it's already almost Easter. This month has flown busy with family matters that sometimes make you think you never even used a brain cell, just had to put it on autopilot. I so look forward to Easter, though.....Good Friday services at church, Easter services, ham dinner with family....they are all so special to me and make me focus on the true meaning of Easter. Not that I don't like bunnies and candy, but I love that Jesus died and rose again for me so that I may be eternally in His presence when I leave this earth. I hope you enjoy this card and I will be posting a couple more this week if all works out the way I would like it to.
