Today is part 2 of our GETTING READY series of posts that will provide ideas/samples as we get ready to begin our 2013 Scripture Sunday: 52 Weeks of Gratitude! If this is your first time here, be sure to head over to our first 2 posts that will explain more about the challenge we are starting.

Today I am showcasing the Artist Trading Card option. Artist Trading cards are 2.5" x 3.5" and you can use any type of card base for them. Many people just cut cardstock to the correct size, but you can purchase these. Here are a few samples I found (watercolor, bristol, kraft, off-white cardstock, white cardstock, canvas, etc):
We will be using Inspired Stamps for all the stamping and verses, but this is not a requirement for you to participate with us. You are welcome to use the verses we have for each week or use another verse or quote that you find more meaningful to you, or just print out your own typed verses. Here are the stamps and the verses we will use for the month of January. Each week this year will have a different Psalm verse:
Jan 6: Psalm 118:24
Jan 13 Psalm 92:4
Jan 20 Psalm 47:1
Jan 27 Psalm 28:7
You can find all these stamps for $3.99 each by clicking HERE or going to www.inspiredstamps.com
If you do ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), you can create the front (I used2 Cor 9:15 for this week's sample verse and the Snowman from our SNOWMEN set) and then briefly write what you are grateful for each day on the back (The word THANKFUL comes from the ART JOURNALING WORDS AND FACES set and the lines are from the JOURNAL SHAPES set).
Leave us a comment below if you are joining us for the 52 Weeks of Gratefulness challenge! Let us know if you plan to do ATCs!!
I'll be back tomorrow (Friday) for the CARD MAKERS sample!
