Scripture Printables

Remember the post I did about "snail mail tuck-ins?"
One of the things I like to include in my cards is a small Scripture card.
 Instead of buying them, I look for pretty printables on-line and add my own appropriate verses to them.
The set above is made from some Mason Jar Freebies (now unavailable) from U Printables.
(I asked Rebecca if i could post them and she kindly gave permission)
I also made some using Mason Jars from Sweetly Scrapped

These are all for PERSONAL USE ONLY -
not be copied or sold in any form. 
If you'd like more you can check
 out my Scripture Freebies page.

Thinking of You!

Sharing a "Thinking of You" card I made using Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die (one of my favorites!!).

Love how fast and easy this was to whip up!
