Hello my sweet stamp friends! I am so very excited and blessed today! My stamp friend Betty has shared my mission of helping others "SEEK HIM DAILY" and she was my first guest host/designer!  Her card was a beautiful Texas Howdy and I know it came from her heart as she has a great love of others, and knows the Lord, and goes to him often in prayer on others behalf! ( Often mine)  So be sure to scroll down and read past post so you can see all of the great stories that are being shared to glorify our Lord! And if you would like to be a host simply click on the word comment and send me  a post or and email to 

This card is called Bird Song! The sentiment says sing like no one is listening. I used a designer paper for the background that has some tree, leaves and flower, designs with some newsprint. I glued that to a chocolate brown card stock for the base of my card. ( Please remember that I sell Stampin' Up! let me know if you need anything) The brown dots are a strip of wash tape and it helped to give the card another color and layer. The bird is stamped and colored with Stampin' Up! markers. It was a gift from my stamp friend Nancy! I cut the bird out and fussy cut around the flower so that it would give the card a focal point and not another straight edge.  You could use any favorite stamp here, try to dig for a stamp that you have not used for a while as they get lonely! HA! There are so many lonely people that need us to share our love for the Lord and encourage them!  I tied some brown twine around the stamped image to add another texture to it. The two blue dots are some bling that comes in multiple colors that match our cards stock, I love to use them and they finish the card off in such a cute way! (order below) I know that sometime I think I am just a small little dot in this world and what difference can I make. Well, it is just like Betty said, a hello is so impactful as many people are on their phone rushing around and will not even make eye contact! It adds to the feeling of isolation and loneliness.  I am asking that you simply be more purposeful in your hello's from now on! Add to them,  and remember Jesus loves you very much!  Because he does! Your heart and theirs will be lifted, and  you will never know the encouragement that will get spread around.

HELLO TO MONICA from Germany she is going tot be a guest host/designer soon so keep watching daily to see what new things are to come.

Have compassion for everyone you meet, even if they don't want it.  What seems like conceit, bad manners, or cynicism, is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there, where the spirit meets the bone.
