I have create two samples for today's hop.....my first sample features "Bless This Home". I love this cottage image and the scriptures and sentiment are fantastic too!
This is a card I made for my niece and her family, who have just moved in to their first house.....very exciting!!!

My second sample features an all time fave set of mine for masculine cards, "Keep My Lamp Burning"! I never get tired of this image....it can be used in sooooo many different ways!! I love the scripture verses which fit perfectly within the skyline....very powerful and strengthening verses!
This card I created for a very dear friend, who has been in and out of the hospital for a year. The scripture I chose is to remind him that he can lean on the Lord for strength and protection. I did not use any embellishments, but stamped the lighthouse an extra time in order to cut it out and pop it up. Everything but the compass was colored with ink pads and sponge daubers.
