Touches of Texture

Steve and I led a mission trip to our Bible camp in Okoboji this week during our Spring Break. It was a combination of Family Camp style Bible study, worship, and doing work projects to help the camp get ready for the summer camp season. My three youngest kids were “camp counselors” for the other kids on the trip ages 6-14.  It warmed my heart to watch my kids showing Christ’s love in their counselor role.

There was a large group of quilting gals at our camp while we were there.  After we got around 10 inches of snow on Sunday, one of the quilting ladies asked Keegan if she could pay him to clean the snow off her car.  He told her he wouldn’t take money, but he would clear the car off. He gathered up some other kids and made it “fun” to clear off all the couple dozen cars in the parking lot.  Needless to say, the quilting gals were very happy with the Mission Okoboji kids!

When I got home I had the most beautiful card in my mailbox from my friend, Ruth Sollberger, who lives in Australia.  Ruth is a Stampin’ Up demo and Bible Study Fellowship leader there, so you should look her up if you live in Australia.

I love this card for so many reasons!  First of all it’s made by my sweet friend and I was thrilled to find it in my mailbox!  The main color is Bermuda Bay which is my all time favorite color.  It is so bright and happy with a touch of Daffodil Delight and the beautiful Sale-A-Bration free silver ribbon.  Do you have this yet?  I think you should get some.  The DSP Ruth used is the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack.  It is gorgeous paper!  Hope you don’t mind Ruth, but I’m going to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) your card.  Thank you so much Ruth!  I think I’ll make a set of three and put it in a box made with the Envelope Punch Board, like the box I made last week.

Let me know if you would like me to write up the directions to make this box.  It’s the perfect size for about three or four cards with envelopes.  This would make a great hostess gift.  I also have a Notecard size Envelope Punch Board Box.

As I was thinking about how blessed I am to have friends around the world, especially Ruth, it reminded me that I’m also blessed with awesome friends that are part of my Stamping Mom’s team.  At our last team meeting, Lynn Tague showed up with this gift for me.

Did you notice this awesome covered notebook is also Bermuda Bay?  My friends know me well!  The Dragonflies are stunning made with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Are you curious what’s inside the box?
