Prayer Journal

I take pleasure in making gifts for my friends and family. Probably a little too much, because I rarely make anything for myself. haha. I had started on a "just because" gift for a friend of mine. We recently had been planning a craft for the girls in a ministry that our husband's take part in. It's a ministry geared towards Native American college students who love the Lord or are seeking. I've made many journals in the past and thought it would be a perfect craft for the girls to do. I showed her my journal and she loved it. Thats when I made up my mind that I was going to make her her very own. I emailed her husband to assist me in her likes...her favorite colors, her favorite verse.  Little did I know, as I was scrolling Facebook I learned it was her birthday today. What great timing! I got on it right away, finished it up, and made a card to go with it.

I have clear washi stamps that I've been eager to use, but was disappointed when I stamped the image on the card.  It was not a crisp clean picture that I had hoped for. Once again, clear stamps have not lived up to my expectations. I have yet to find good quality clear stamps.  Instead of the washi tape stamps, I used paper, just like I did in my file folder birthday card (A few posts below). 

I'm very happy with it and I know she'll love it.  I'm very blessed that God placed her in my life when He did.  We haven't known each other that long but as soon as we met her and her husband, we knew it was all God.  I look forward to seeing our friendship blossom.

(sorry for the poor picture quality)
