Joy in a Jar


Happy Saturday to you my stamping friends! Hope you all are having a great weekend so far. My weekend has been amazing so far. Today my husband and I are celebrating our Anniversary....yay! My two girls made us breakfast, made a huge word banner, well, more of a layout on the floor, as it was so big, that spelled Happy Anniversary. They even got us gifts......so sweet. My 8 y.o. drew a picture of mommy and daddy holding hands on a walk and put it in a frame.....love it! {sniff sniff, tearing up here}  Anyhow, life is good and I thank God for it.

But, you did not come here to here about my life, so let me share this card with you that I have made using the absolutely amazing stamps and dies from the January release over at Our Daily Bread Designs. You know being a Christian and knowing how God always has our back, it brings great joy to my heart. People will let you down, that is just our nature, but God, he is always right there, and that brings great joy to me. So for my card I have chosen the Joy in a Jar stamp set in combination with the Apothecary Bottles stamp and die set and this is what came out

Hi Sabrina, Happy Anniversary to you and your husband.What a lovely gift your daughters made for you for your special day. Looks as though they will be very creative just like their Mom. I hope that all of you are doing well and that your weather is good.

I absolutely love your card Sabrina. You are truly a very talented designer. I think the joys in the bottle is a fantastic stamp set. Thank you so much for sharing your card and your post. Have a great rest of the weekend Sabrina.
