Handle with Prayer...

Good morning all!  I hope everyone's day is starting off well!  Mine didn't...woke up with a migraine, but I'm good now...well, headache gone, sicky feeling still there.  I'll be alright though! 

I started working on this card last night and got a little frustrated, bc I couldn't figure out how I wanted it all to fit together.  I was dealing with some other stressful stuff as well, so I'm sure that had a little bit to do with it.  So, I layed it aside and decided to finish it this morning.  I'm glad I did, bc I love how it turned out!  I wanted to tell you a little bit about where I found the stamps.  It's from a company called Raisin Boat.  I'm not sure if you all have heard of them or not.  However, I like them, bc you can rent stamps from them...yes, I said RENT!  It's sort of like Netflix or Gamefly.  You make your pick list and they send them to you based on the amount you want to pay per month.  For instance, I decided to go for the trial and paid $5.99 and I am allowed to rent 2 sets.  If I like them I can by them for a discounted price (but they send you a brand new set, not a used one).  It's pretty cool! 

The stamp set I used today is called Handle With Prayer.  I am not sure if I'll be purchasing this one or not.  It's really cute, but I'm not sure how much use I would actually get out of it.  Still considering though!  :)

I'm also entering this into the CPS Challenge #258.

Lovely card! I love the embossing folder you used and I have never heard of renting stamps. I am going to check it out. Thanks for sharing.
