A New Year

I can't believe it has been over a month since I last posted. The Christmas season is always so busy, but full of joy and hope as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior. We were fortunate to have all of our kids and grandkids here for Christmas. We had a wonderful time. God has been so good to us and has blessed us with a very loving family.
God's Amazing Grace! This is one of my favorite hymns and I was so excited to see Our Daily Bread Designs come out with this beautiful stamp. This is my attempt to share His beauty

I made this for the monthly ODBD challenge. We were to use brown and any punches or die cuts. I love very vanilla and chocolate chip together so this was a happy challenge for me. The very vanilla has been Cuttlebugged with the Victorian folder. I used the Nestibilities labels for the book. The very vanilla page has been touched all around the edges with a gold metallic pen and all set up on dimensionals. I got to use my new Bow Easy and I love it. Added ribbon, flowers and Basic Grey Opaline Pearls. I love how this turned out. Thanks for spending some time with me.

Paper: chocolate chip and very vanilla cardstock
Ink: chocolate chip
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Victorian folder, Nestibilities labels, gold metallic pen, dimensionals, Basic Grey Opaline Pearls, ribbon, Bow Easy
