 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:

Works of Art






This set is really good for stamping on the back of cards.

   The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:

Wise Men
                                                      






I printed Matthew 2:1-12 onto dp and then stamped the wisemen, the sentiment and the star. A very CAS card for me. I think it will be great when it comes time to mailing my Christmas cards. My cards are usually so bulky that I spend several dollars just mailing them.

I took the sentiments from this set plus two more from the sets released this month, to make a word block. I used the stencil I shared yesterday. I used white acrylic paint. My card also has drywall tape, rhinestone, a paper doily and a ribbon. This week has had me thinking about being a thankful person. I like doing things for my family. I look cooking and fixing them dinner. What I don't like is when they start taking me for granted, and just expect me to do it for them. It made me think about all the things that God does for me in my life, and how he must feel when I don't say thank you and just expect and even demand that he do them for me. God give me a thankful heart because you have blessed me beyond what I deserve. I know you do it because you love me,
