Divine Design: God Bless the USA

He has made everything beautiful in it’s time. ~ Ecc. 3:11

 It’s Divine Design time, and I’m finally ahead of the game. Long time coming, I know. :) I planned my verse and 6×6 page this month as a celebration of the country I love and my family’s favorite summer holiday, here in Midwest USA, the Fourth of July.You can see other Divine Design (scripture inspired projects) by visiting Angel Wilde, Jami Bova, Nancy Morgan and my moving-back-to-the-midwest friend, Taylor VanBruggen.  😉 I always look forward to seeing their beautiful work.

I have relocated every 3-5 years of my life, all my life. I’ve lived in the north, the midwest, Texas and the deep south.  I’ve never lived in an ugly part of our country, and actually, I’m not sure an ugly part exists. I love the Flint Hills of Kansas, the lakes of Minnesota, the tall pines of Georgia and the Caprock in Texas.  I love it all. Do I sound like Lee Greenwood? Does anyone even know who he is? At any rate, I’m grateful to live here in the beautiful United States of America.

 The scripture is from one of the anniversary sets at Our Daily Bread Designs.  All of the die-cut images are Sizzix (Decorative Label Set, Hello Kitty Flower Bouquet and Hello Kitty Ribbons). I ran the smaller die-cut pieces thru my Xyron and then dipped into glitter. Patterned paper is WeRMemory Keepers. Rhinestone bling is from KaiserCraft, available at eP.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Lori!! This is such a perfect scripture for this card!! I love all the red, white and blue sparkle on this too! Beautiful!

  2. I love, love, love, love, this. So gorgeous and perfect!

    (and totally brought back memories of seeing Lee Greenwood perform at the Cattle Baron’s ball in Goliad, TX long, long ago!)

  3. This is gorgeous!!! I love your colors and that verse is one of my very favorites. We msut be on the same wave length because I made a card with that same stamp today that I plan to post tomorrow. You did a gorgeous job with the red, white and blue and the sparkle details!!

  4. Beautiful is right! This is gorgeous!!

  5. Lee, he is proud to be an american!! And so am I! Love your card, especially the scripture you chose..LOL!! Such a happy card!

  6. Everything pops on this card…love the choice of background paper to use with that shade of blue…great card.

  7. Beautiful and divine, Miss Lori! You’re not going to believe this, but I’ve been wanting to glitter up some chipboard with red, but haven’t found the time to do it yet…could it be that we’re just {that} much alike?!
    I guess we’ll find out at CHA–booked my flight last week, baby! Ü

  8. Gorgeous…look at all the sprakle :) ! Our country is filled with God’s beauty, that’s for sure!! Great choice on your verse and the page just turned out beautful. It sounds like moving has given you lots of opportunity to see new places, how exciting!

  9. Well stated, thank you.
    I’ve lived all across the land, as well. Just finishing 15 wonderful years in the Kansas Flint Hills – great people, great opportunities. In retirement, we’ll be at our cabin near Table Rock Lake, in the Ozarks; with frequent family trips to Boulder Mountain near Capital Reef, in Utah, and to Austin, TX to see the grandkids – and lots of places from there!

    Positive mention of the Flint Hills always gets my attention! Thanks!
    So happy it brought me to your site. Hope you and your readers visit regularly.
