Photo Christmas Card

I just read a blog that went on and on about proper blog etiquette, not fun. Sounds like this person has a concern about her work being posted on other sites without permission. While I can understand it is reasonable and proper to ask permission....several lengthy paragraphs on the subject was a bit much.

So, instead of reading all of that....I decided to post a newly made Christmas card that utilizes a photo I snapped this summer. Easy peasy to make, fast, fun, and wonderful. My inspiration came from a card class I attended at Archiver's in Castleton. The stamps are from Hero Arts.
The husband Mark, and grandsons Elias and Ezera. That is Elias, the inquisitive one looking back.
Blessings and don't forget to ask for permission instead of forgiveness.

Thanksgiving Blessing


It has been a long time....sorry.
I wanted to share this with you...
O God, when I have food,
help me to remember the hungry;
When I have work,
help me to remember the jobless:
When I have a home,
help me to remember those who have no home at all;
When I am without pain,
help me to remember those who suffer.
And remembering;
help me to destroy my complacency;
bestir my compassion,
and be concerned enough to help;
By work and deed,
those who cry out for what we take for granted.
by Samuel F. Pugh, A Thanksgiving Prayer
