Happy Fourth of July!

Yes, Happy 4th of July to you all!
Thanking God today for this great country I live in and the many freedoms we still enjoy. But the values and standards we live by have been eroding over the years and I am reminded that we all need to pray for the USA, it's leaders and it's people. Word Art Wednesday has chosen for their Bible verse this week
Psalm 33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance." ....very apt. Excellent reminder!
I did not use their artwork this time, instead I used I Peter 5:7, which tells us not to worry but trust God, also a wonderful reminder for uncertain times!


Ingredients:
Spellbinders dies - "Labels 15" & "Fleur de Lis Squares"
Stamps - ODBD "Scripture Series 3" & All Night Media "Classic Rose Frame"
colored with colored pencils and Memento markers
Red Ribbon & Twine - from my stash
Bling - EK Success
Thanks for stopping by today!
I hope you all have a happy, safe and blessed 4th!

I still have a little plaque Christopher brought home from Camp Galilee 35 years ago. I have used that scripture so much. Your car is perfect. The coloring, the image the ribbon, the yarn and the die cuts. It looks like you loved making it.
Thank you so much for dropping in and posting your lovely projects.
The BLESSING of the Lord be upon you,
