As For Me and My House...

I am really enjoying the versatility of the Reversed Banner die set.  Here, I flipped it upside down and used it to make a house, and what a cute little house it is!  I think it makes the perfect setting for this verse from the God Is Light stamp set.  This card could be used for encouragement or as a welcome card for a new church member.
The items listed below are available on my Fun Stamper's Journey site at
