Bountiful Blessing and Blog Goodies

Bountiful blessings- this is truly how I see my life. I am primarily a glass half full kind of gal but with the hectic pace of my life I rarely sit down and consider my blessings. My faith, my family, my friends, my health, my home, the list could go on and on. One of my many blessings is the friendships that I have formed through this ever growing world of paper craft blogs. I recently passed my 20,000th hit to my humble little A Stampin' Good Time and it truly boggles my mind ! You folks are awesome and to say Thank You , I have some yummies below for a random drawing. But first, a few quick details about my card (of course, you can always scroll down to the candy part first *wink*!


Today's card features the Artful Inkables set, Olive You. This is one of the 4 sets released last Thursday and like the rest is so versatile. I thought the little dove holding the olive branch was perfect for this Websters Pages rub-on "Beautiful Blessings." I teamed them up with BG, Periphery paper which I ran through my new Cuttlebug embossing folder, Leafy Branch. I love the way this new folder coordinates with the Olive set! My ribbon is May Arts and the brad is DCWV from Michaels.

Okay, now for the fun part!!!
I've been collecting some of the goodies for a little while waiting until I have what I thought was a worthy prize. For a chance to win the following: a My Favorite Things "Be Mine" stamp set, a Technique Tuesday mini stamp set, 2 bottles of Adirondack Tim Holtz's Alcohol Inks, a package of Making Memory summer themed felt embellishments, 1 piece of Tim Holtz Grunge Board and some May Art Ribbon, please, leave a comment on this post regarding at least one of your own blessings. I will draw a winner via Random Generator on Friday, August 22nd! So there you go! Hope everyone has a super week! It's AWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!

Hmmm...just one is hard because I am so incredibly blessed. I guess mine would be the amazing group of people I have surrounding me to encourage and support me.

Mary Elizabeth must be getting more and more excited everyday as Jonas Brothers concert gets closer. I'm sure she will have so much fun! :]

Just name one blessing? But I have so many... ;) Hmmm, I guess I will say my family. Having a loving family makes life so much more joyful!
By the way I think your card is beautiful!

40lbs of peaches and turn it into salsa with me last night!!

One of my blessings is my husband. He is a very hard worker but also loves to be goofy and have fun. Just a great guy, all around. :)

Bethany Paull said...

Yay! Congrats on all those blog visitors. Your card is so lovely. I'm thankful that my mom is a fighter. She just passed the one year mark of fighting cancer. Things are still up in the air, but she has not once complained. She does everything the doctors tell her and simply believes in the best. I can't believe the things she still accomplishes on a daily basis, despite all she is going through.

What a gorgeous card, Beth! I'm blessed with my 3 wonderful grandsons! (At least I can say that until they become teenagers!! Then I'll have to get back to you!)

MaryBeth said...

I am thankful that I have pulled through a major neurological trauma and through lots of hard work and love from my family, I am definitely on the road to recovery. Stamping and scrapbooking are my passions so I hope to be back doing those things before too long. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

wonderful blog, I'm happy to have stumbled upon it.

My blessing will probably make most women a bit envious, but I was blessed with the world's easiest pregnancy TWICE and have two perfect little girls to remember it by.

My blessings are my children and grandchildren. Is that one blessing or several?

Stampin Cats said...

My blessing is my health. I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 21. I am now 46 and cancer free, for now.

Jennifer Scull said...

Congratulations on so many postings! your card is beautiful! Periphery is probably my most favorite of the BG collections and the one I turn to the most. (well, other than the Christmas ones of course!)

my greatest blessing at first thought would be my wonderful family, but the more I think about it, I have to say that I am blessed that every day God still loves me just the way I am - scars, screw-ups, and all. He sees through all of that and still smiles when He looks at me. He still sees hope when He looks at my past, my present, and my future. And for that I am most truly blessed. :)

thank you!
Jennifer
