NEW STAMPS in the Etsy Shop NOW! Winners announced here...

Hello friends!
So much to share today!!  
First up, THIS SUNDAY I am starting a 31 Days of March: Beginning Bible Art Journaling and I hope you will join us over on the GodblessyourART blog !!  Nothing to buy or sign up for and my goal is to keep it so you can use what you currently have on hand to get started in this very fun and thoughtful way of going to Scripture! 

Today we have lots of stamps brand new to the etsy shop in stock and ready for you to purchase!
First up is one of our 2"x2" Single Scripture Stamps ($3.99) that is currently back in stock (it is one of our best sellers and a favorite verse of mine!):
I created this canvas panel using this stamp a while back:

 Next up is a BRAND NEW 2"x2" Single Scripture Stamp ($3.99) to Inspired Stamps:





There are 2 His Little Ones stamps ($4.49 each) that we are just now putting into the etsy shop:
 The first is His Little Ones: Boy Praying and the second I colored above next to him is His Little Ones: Girl Praying.  Here they each are on some card boxes I created a while back (the stitching and verse are from our BIND AND STITCH  stamp set, also in the store):

We have a BRAND NEW His Little Ones: Praying Girl 2 ($4.49) that is in the etsy shop now too:
I colored her in a few different color schemes so you could see her differently!


What fun!!  I'm so excited about all we have going on and hope you are too!

31 Days of March: Beginning Bible Art Journaling

Hello friends!
I'm so excited to share this year's 31 DAYS OF MARCH segment!  This year's is called 31 Days of March: Beginning Bible Art Journaling!  We will go through what Bible Art Journaling is, materials to use (you have all you require already at your home if you have a pen and a bible), how to carefully observe the bible text and understand it, and I will walk you step by step through Psalm 119 with lots of examples and free printables for you to use throughout the month.  I thoroughly enjoy this process and my prayer is that you will too!

This will begin on March 1st (THIS SUNDAY) over on my mixed-media blog: www.GodblessyourART.blogspot.com
This is absolutely free and there is nothing to even sign up for...the blog posts will stay up as in years past so you can refer to them as often as you like!

**Feel free to copy/paste the above photo to your facebook pages, groups, or blogs where you feel others would benefit and have interest!**

I'll be back Thursday evening with the Design Team's 2x2" Scripture artwork!!
Please leave a comment below or email me a note (inspiredstamps@gmail.com) if you plan to pop over to see the Beginning Bible Art Journaling segment!  It's always nice to know who is stopping by!!
Blessings,
Antoinette
