Let Your Light Shine

Throw-Back Thursday

Hello fellow crafters! This is Grace from Grace Notes for Today and I have something to share with you that has been in hiding for a long time.

Back in 2009 when I was fairly new to blogging, I created this card. I just came across it again today... waaayyyy down in the list of cards. I think it needs to be shared again. It can be used for almost any occasion: Pastor's Day, encouragement, Get Well, Birthday, even Graduation.

The Inside is blank to allow for any personalized message or poem.

The Lighthouse

There is something about a lighthouse that is welcoming, yet by itself it seems forlorn. My card post will give you all the details on how I made it. More importantly, though, it gives you my reasons for making the card and exactly what the Lighthouse means.
Following are some pics from the original post. Click any pic to see it bigger.

The cartridge used for all cuts is "Live Is A Beach".

I invite you to enjoy the whole blog post from October 19, 2009.

Let Your Light Shine

By the way, I still have this card in my possession... waiting to give it to someone special for a particular occasion or reason. Have you ever made something and then had a hard time giving it away? This card speaks to me in so many ways, I may have to keep it forever as a reminder of God's love and grace towards me.

SHINE, all occasion card by Grace Baxter

Do any of you remember a little song called "This Little Light of Mine"? We sang it all the time in Sunday School, years ago. Join me in letting your light shine... for Him!

For all my cards and projects, drop by my blog and stay awhile!
