Customer Card of the Day - Natalie Houston!!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!! One more day until Thanksgiving....I can smell the turkey and pumpkin pie now, can't you?! Though the Thanksgiving feast is always fantastic, I look forward most to the pre-dinner prayer, my entire family hand in hand, giving thanks to God for his countless blessings and the gift of his Son, Jesus.

Speaking of giving thanks, we at Our Daily Bread designs would like to thank each and every one of you for your love, friendship, and all mean so much to us! One way that we like to show our gratitude is to feature one customer at a time, every Wednesday, for Customer Card of the Day. This week's amazing card belongs to Natalie Houston....yay, Natalie!

Natalie has been a customer for nearly two years, has played frequently in our challenges, and has been a winner several times! Personally, I don't know how she has the time to create so many beautiful cards and layouts....Natalie is a pastor's wife, organizes church events and bible studies, she is a busy mother and grandmother, works part time at her local scrapbook store, writes a Bible study lesson for the ODBD Forum (previously Christian Paper Crafts), and much more! Being on the DT with Natalie at Christian Paper Crafts has been a total blessing to me and to others....she is an amazing role model and mentor and a wonderful, caring friend!

The moment I saw this card, which was submitted last week for the Shining the Light Challenge, I knew it was the next Customer Card of the Day! The stunning color combination really caught my eye.....the K & Co designer paper is perfect against the teal, plus the gold embossed scripture verse from "Christmas Verses" is the icing on the cake!! Gorgeous work, Natalie dear!!!

Please stop by Natalie's blog, Delightful Details, or her Splitcoast gallery, NanH, to see more of her beautiful cards, layouts, and altered items. She will be thrilled that you stopped by for a visit!!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a very blessed Thanksgiving Day tomorrow! If you don't feel like fighting the Black Friday crowd, you can always shop at Our Daily Bread have until Saturday night at midnight EST to take advantage of the Super Special Sale, which was mentioned earlier this week at the end of the Product Review post....check it out HERE!

See you Friday for another Flashback Friday Favorites post! God Bless!

Congrats Natalie - a well deserved honor! Your card is just gorgeous!

Natalie said...

Thank you so much, this is a real honor. I see so many gorgeous cards here at ODBD that I honestly feel just a tad bit intimidated when I enter a card in a challenge. However, the stamps are so wonderful to work with, I especially love the Scripture verses and it reminds me that it's not about me it's about Jesus! To God be the glory. Thanks again, Angie for such a sweet write up.
PS I don't smell turkey yet, but it will be the smell of homemade bread shortly that will be permeating my home(that's my contribution to the dinner!)
Happy Thanksgiving!
