Truly Grateful for today

Happy 4th my dear friends,
Today I simply reflect in how blessed we are (I am) to live in the USA, to be part of this nation (thou not born in the continental US), truly grateful for the opportunities I've found here. I am really blessed. So I stop to meditate, give thanks to God for His immesurable grace and for the freedom we have in Him. Enjoy life, do what is good and seek God. Without Him there is no peace and without peace there is no power.

Enjoy my July 4th card... not a traditional one for sure, but bringing reflection to our hearts today.
See another sample and quick picture tutorial on my previous post HERE!

Feliz 4 de julio a todas mis amigas aca en los Estados,
Es un dia hermoso para reflexionar y dar gracias por todo lo que hemos recibido. Vivir en los EU es una bendicion y la libertad que gozamos un privilegio dado por Dios a esta nacion. Vivo agradecida y hoy simplemente me detengo a dar gracias y disfrutar la vida plena que he recibido. Hacer el bien, vivir a plenmitud y buscar a Dios. Sin El no hay paz y sin paz no hay poder.
Mi tarjetita del 4 de julio no es tradicional...mas trae reflexion al corazon.

The technique I used is the one shown at Technique Twist Challenge this week. Give it a try, is simple but the results are so much fun. On my twist today I did my Rolled Quartz technique on sandpaper (of all things), instead of the traditional Window Sheet. Another Twist was NOT using White Ink refill, I only used Island Indigo and fine glimmer. My CS is Bermuda Bay.
La tecnica que use es la que se muestra en el reto de Technique Twist esta semana. Vaya a intentarla, es simple mas los resultados son tremendos. En mi cambio de hoy (mi 'twist') hice la tecnica Rolled Quartz en papel de lijar (sandpaper), en vez de en la tradicional transparencia. Otro cambio que hice fue no usar la tinta blanca, solo la azul color Island Indigo y escarcha fina en dorado. My Cartulina es Bermuda Bay.

Stamp set: Trust God/Confia en Dios
Big Shot and Apothecary Labels Framelits used to cut the opening.

I linked my sample today at Less is More Challenge. The key word is "SAND" and my colors turned out great to remind me of the beach. Thanks for your constant inspiration! Il be playing more often after I move. :P

Thanks for stopping by and many blessings!
