Lift Up Our Hands + a giveaway!

With all the craziness of last month, I never really got to show off the prayer set that I designed for Our Daily Bread designs...! I always seem to have a bit of a creative block anyway with my own designs. Anyway, here are 2 cards to showcase the versatility of Lift Up Our Hands. This card just sort of 'evolved'...I stamped the main image first on watercolor paper, then colored in the background/base with a black marker. The hands were colored in with markers, then I added shading and highlighting with Prismacolor pencils and a white gel pen. The flourishes on the corners are partial images from the Flourished Christian Symbols set, and I masked the sentiment to break it into 2 parts.

This card was super simple to put together. I chose some coordinating scraps from my stash, stamped the main image in a coordinating ink, and layered it all together. The ribbon was originally white, so I dyed it with the same ink to match. I found the charms in town for about 20 cents apiece - ! I added an adhesive copper pearl to pull things together.

If you've read this far...maybe you like this set so much that you'd like to have your own copy??!?!! I have one to give away! Leave a comment on this post telling me either something you're thankful for, or sharing something that's been on your heart to pray for lately. I'll draw a random winner Tuesday Feb. 10th at midnight EST.

  2. I have so much to be thankful for! It is on my heart to pray for our new president, Barack Obama. Although I didn't vote for him, he is now the president of these United States, and needs the direction only God can provide.

  3. This set is so beautiful...I think it is my favorite set of all at ODBD!

    I have it on my heart to pray for my Mom. She had major surgery on November 20, and is still trying to recover. This was the 4th, and largest, surgery she's had to correct the problem, and she has had multiple complications. I am giving thanks in advance for God's provision for her, and for allowing us to live together so that I am here 24/7.

    Thanks for the chance Dina!

  4. I'm thankful for my family that is so supportive of everything I do. My prayer concern is for our aging parents. Both my husband and I have a parent that is suffering from dementia which is hard on the caretakers.
    I am also thankful for all the wonderful bloggers (including you Dina) that brighten my day with their wonderful creations.

  10. I am thankful for electricity, and for friends who are comfortable enough to come and stay. I am also thankful for the ice, it is beautiful how God can take a broken branch and make it sparkle just like my heart.

  11. Love both cards Dini! I cannot believe you have trouble creating w/your own designs! I'm thankful for days I can physically take my dogs for a walk. We have so many blessings & take so much for granted.

    Wow! Where to start? This morning it was announced in church that we have a zero balance on the mortgage!! That was so exciting and I was very thankful.
    I'm thankful to have a family who I love and loves me.
    I'm thankful to have a home to live in and food to eat.
    I'm thankful that I am physically able to work at a job that I love. And even more blessed to have a boss who is a Christian man.
    I could go on and on but that's enough for now.
    Thanks for the chance to win!
    Have a wonderful day!!!

  15. Dina, this is such a great set. It's perfect to use for someone in y life. I have a friend who's been sick for over 5 years now. She's 24 years old and they still can't figure out what it is. She is in terrible pain with her skin. She used to have terrible yeast infections all over. Now she's been directed to go to a very strict diet hoping to flush toxins out and get to the bottom of it. But now she has some sort of fungus... well you get the point. She's so young and been in bed for years. My soul aches for her. :-(

  19. Thank you so much for a chance to win this lovely set. I am thankful to know Jesus Christ as my personal saviour, because I know that it's only through his love and mercy that I managed to cope when my Mother died and to get through all the troubled times in my life. I am also extremely thankful for having wonderful Godfearing parents too, what a true blessing a family is.

  20. Dina this set is beautiful! I would love to win it. I am presently praying that God would make a way for my daughter and grandbaby to come live with my husband and I. I am so grateful to my Savior for my salvation and His never ending love and forgiveness. Thank you for this opportunity!

  21. I have been praying for my 8 year old, who is autistic (high functioning - Asperger's). I've prayed for his healing, and it's working. We have been working for 4 years now to get him better, and I can finally say that he is almost there. I am SO SO thankful to God for answering our prayers. He is now the child I always knew he could be.
