Hello friends!
Lots to share with you today!  First of all our new APRIL Gratitude Set is in the online store at a discount.  These are limited in number and while supplies last:
We are also having a sale on all our Easter Stamp Sets from now through Easter (also while supplies last!).  Many of these sets are in the Easter Category because they are universal images or verses, and can be used year round so be sure to go take a look.  No coupon code needed; they are already marked down:

Don't forget to join us for our Gratitude CHALLENGE!  The winner this month will get a prize package with stamps and Spellbinders die cuts.  You can find all the info by CLICKING HERE.

I found these great wooden plaques for under a dollar each at Michaels!  I decided to make sure Scripture plaques with them and had so much fun, I seriously could not stop!  I will be going to buy out my local Michaels of these amazing finds to make as gifts for friends!

Here's what I did to make them:
 The one on the right above is how they come in a very pale wood.  I used Distress Ink in Tea Die directly to the wood below:
 Then I used the Walnut Stain with my sponge dauber around the edges, on the top and bottom edges below:
 Then I took my paint brush and used water to blend it in to give me the color I wanted on the wood: 
 The finished products came out really well (the tag is the Vintage Tag die cut from Magnolia) I got at my local Scrapbook store and the verse is from the Inspired Stampers Favorite Collection #1:
Here are more that I did (I told you I couldn't stop!  Wouldn't these make great wedding, new home or even Mothers/Fathers day presents?!  And under a dollar!) and yes, you can use Momento black in to stamp directly onto the wood as I did in the crosses from the ELEGANT EASTER STAMP SET here:

 The colored flowers I used from the THINKING OF YOU stamp sets flowers in these tags.  The verse is from FALL GRATITUDE:

 The number 2013 is from our LABELMAKER ALPHABET and the verse is one of our $3.99 single verse sets 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 the Gospel
 I hope you enjoyed this mini-tutorial I shared with the wooden plaques!  Be sure to post your creations on our FACEBOOK wall if you go out and make some yourself.  We'd love to see what you come up with!

Sunday is another GRATITUDE CHALLENGE, so be sure to stop by and see what we've created for you this week!
