Winter Birthday

Here is another stamp I purchased at the LSS yard sale.  I love getting these stamps at discount prices :) It is a big stamp, this card measures 5x7.

This girlfriend is in my Daniel plan group and my ladies craft night group and she saves all my cards.


Northwoods rubber stamps-- 2009, colored w/markers
Stickles -- frosted lace (on top of bird houses for sparkle in the snow)
Colorbok -- Rosewood paper
Spellbinders -- Labels 29 and Exquiste Labels 11
Enamel accents -- white
Recollections -- wooden bird, colored w/ weathered wood distress stain
Offray ribbon

I am sure you have probably heard on the news that the decision came down from the grand jury that the officer is not being charged in the Michael Brown case.  There is such turmoil now in the St. Louis area, so many people are now out of jobs because of the looting and burning of business's.  Will you join me in praying that the people doing this damage will stop and find another way of peacefully getting their message across.  So far in our area all seems to be ok, all protest have been peaceful.

Wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving, I am very Thankful for all the blessings God has poured onto me, wonderful family, great friends and I am thankful for those of you that I have met through this blog and feel I have come to know, such a great way to make new friends.

Thanks for stopping by,

Connie

It's adorable Connie, your friend will love it! A very fun and adorable stamp! My heart goes out to all those business owners that have lost their livelihood . . . I can't begin to imagine living through that and having to rebuild.

Yes indeed that is very terrible what is going on there. I do believe the grand jury did the right thing, Praise the Name of Jesus.
I feel for this young man and his family and their safety. May God watch over and Bless them and keep them safe.
Everyday officers put their lives in harms way. And if this is the way we are going to treat our officers who will want the job?
May your Thanksgiving have been a blessed one. Hugs to you and your family and your city may their peace. Hugs Kat
