Sucker For You

Well, I thought I’d share one last Valentine’s Day graphic with you… since it is Valentine’s Day. “I’m a sucker for you” is the message of this graphic, and the one I passed along to my wonderful husband today. :) You can download it below in a half-sheet (8.5 x 5.5) size for a 2-up flyer or PowerPoint (1024 x 768). There’s plenty of room for you to add your own personal message and text. Enjoy and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love With Your Whole Heart

Approaching Valentine’s Day the stores are covered in hearts, flowers and candy. I thought it might be nice to have a simple Valentine’s bulletin cover or flyer that wasn’t pink and red, which could also be used for a “Love” sermon series. These paper hearts are handmade (well, inside of Photoshop) with love. Enjoy!

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:37-39 (NIV)

DIY Chalkboard Quotes and Notes

With so many attribution-free resources available online, it’s easier to make your own chalkboard typography for Facebook or Pinterest quotes and notes than you might think. One of the best places to pick up completely free photos in a hurry is Pixabay.com. As they explain on Pixabay, ” You can use any Pixabay image without attribution in digital and printed form, even for commercial applications.” Great news, right? Once you create a free account, do a quick search for “chalkboard” and you’ll see a good selection of options like the one I used in my examples below. Next, all you need is a good chalkboard font or two. The fonts I’ve used below are chalk-hand-lettering-shaded and Chalk it up; both are available from one of my favorite font websites, dafont.com. Install the fonts and drop your background and your personalized text into any kind of image-editing software. I prefer Adobe Photoshop, but there are also a dozen free Photoshop-like alternatives to choose from that you can find online. Feel free to use the high resolution chalkboard quotes below, or even better, make your own. Enjoy!

Do Something Great Today

Ten years ago today, my husband proposed. After a half-hour of speechlessness (rare for me), I finally said “yes!” That was a per-ret-ty great day. Every day holds new hope, new creativity, new potential. Here is free inspirational graphic, “Do Something Great Today” in a few different colors, powerpoint size but still 300 dpi (high resolution). Enjoy!

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.” Lamentations 3:22-24 (NIV)

A Mom’s Promise

I recently came across the below quote (author unknown) and really liked it until about halfway through:

My promise to my children: For as long as I live, I will always be your parent first, and your friend second. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare, and hunt you down like a bloodhound when I have to, because I love you. When you understand that, I will know you have become a responsible adult. You will never find anyone else in your life who loves, prays, cares, and worries about you more than I do. If you don’t mutter under your breath ”I hate you” at least once in your life, I am not doing my job properly.

There is at least one person who prays for my three children as much as I do (probably more), their Grandma. So, this is my modified version. Enjoy!

A Mom’s Promise: For as long as I live I will always be your parent first and your friend second. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare and hunt you down like a bloodhound when I have to, because I love you. When you understand that, I will know you have become a responsible adult. No one loves, prays, cares and worries about you more than I do (accept for Grandma).
