Take Time to Pray

I'm finally back with a new project to share.  For ODBDSLC64, we were challenged to make a ribbon bookmark.  For SNTODBD36, we were challenged to make a project using our favorite ODBD stamp set.  I decided to combine the two challenges and made a ribbon bookmark using one of my current favorite ODBD stamps.

I used the sentiment from the ODBD set "Time" that just came out in the June release.  I just thought it would be very fitting for a Bible bookmark, just a gentle reminder to take time to pray.  I tied the bow using my Bow Easy and sponged the edges with SU! Old Olive ink.

I used some olive satin ribbon and attached some trim to the top using 1/4" scor-tape. 

The clock charm is from The Girls Paperie "Whimsy" collection, and then I just added some Recollection roses. 

Here's a last look at the whole bookmark.

I'm hoping to get back into more regular cardmaking.  I've been working on sorting through Mom's things, and that leaves me tired in a lot of different ways.  Sometimes it is physically tiring, and at other times, it's more of an emotional experience.  To those of you who left notes of thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers, thank you so much!  I truly appreciate your kindness.

Thanks for stopping by!

ETA:  I'm so blessed that my entry was chosen as one of the Shining the Light Award recipients for this challenge!  Thank you ODBD!
