Comfort in God's Word


Friday is here!  I know several folk who are glad that this week is over!  Life is full of problems and heartaches and trials.  BUT we can have comfort!!  God knows all and cares for all and has a plan for all, and if we trust Him, He WILL bring us through every problem and heartache and trial!  He promises that in His Word!!!

This has been a rough week for several of my friends and I have made some cards to send.  Here is one of them...



This sentiment and image are from Doodle Pantry's Daily Devotion.  This is a beautiful set!  You'll see more cards with this soon.  The DP is the last few pages of MME Lost & Found Two "Sunshine" and I'm going to miss this pad!  The brown is embossed (I put my paper in upside down so it's actually debossed!) with CB Teresa Collins Timeless EF.  The brown pearls are Recollections.

Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #194 - anything goes/family friendly
Kraftin' Kimmie's Wonderful Wednesday - anything goes
Sister Act #117 - anything goes
Creative Knockouts #10 - dry embossing  **my first time playing with this challenge, but when I saw "dry embossing" (the BEST technique EVER), I HAD to play along!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!  If you are going through a deep trial now, know that there is true comfort in Jesus Christ and that relationship is found in God's Word!!

Summer "hi"!


Happy Wednesday to you!  I don't even want to think about how quickly summer is going!!  We have enjoyed our activities and plan to continue to keep it up!  Earlier this month, some of my family was able to spend some time at my parents cottage... just about the best place on earth, in my opinion.  We relaxed, swam, rode the paddle boat, and got some sunburn.  So much fun! :)   Here at home, the filter is not working, so our pool is green, so we can't do this, but it is great fun to just float on lake or in pool and enjoy the warmth! 

Birdbrain is doing just that...




I made this card for several challenges...
From the Heart Stamps FREE Stamp of the Month - July (must use Inner Tube Birdbrain)
Die Cuttin Divas #226 - "The Great Outdoors" (I used Spellbinders Matting Basics A dies)
Tuesday Throwdown #255 - Summer Fun
Simon Says Wednesday - Anything goes

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

With appreci-ocean!


Today I've got another card (like my previous post) that has a play on words...



My image and sentiment are from Doodle Pantry.  The set is Seahorse Habitat COLOR Plus.  I've had the plaid paper on the red matte on my desk for weeks.  I just kept moving it out of my way until I printed this image and realized it would work well with it.  :)  
My image and sentiment are off-set and I like the effect, but it was kind of an accident... I meant them to be aligned vertically, but forgot to do that before printing, so... this is what you get! 

Challenges...
Word Art Wednesday #193 - anyhing goes/family friendly
Sister Act #115 - anything goes
Fussy and Fancy Challenge 143 - beach fun 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!!

Happy Bear-day!


Happy Tuesday evening to you!!  (I guess it's late enough that it's almost Wednesday!)  It's been quite awhile since I've posted more than once in a day, but I had some time to play this evening and have a birthday card to share with you...



Isn't this little guy adorable??  He's from the Beary Cute COLOR Plus set from Doodle Pantry.  The digi paper is also from that set.  My image is cut out with Spellbinders Standard Circles and the mat is Petite Scalloped Circles.  The flowers are Flora Doodles.  The punched border is a Martha Stewart punch. 

Challenges...
Papertake Weekly - Build It Up
Seize the Birthday - Anything goes (must be birthday)
613 Avenue Create #133 - Anything goes w/ optional twist (I didn't do the twist)
Through the Craft Room Door 7/21 - Anything goes

A flower basket - TMS #310


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  Another week, another challenge, and another sketch.  :) 

Here is my card for this week...

 
My image is "Cute Girl with Flower Basket" from our sponsor for this week... SLS Lines.  It's an Etsy shop full of "digital stamps and papers with a fun and quirky vibe."   I colored my image with Spectrum Noir markers.  All of my DP was from my scrap pile.  My flourish is from Spellbinders Doodle Parts and it is topped with a Prima flower.  

The sketch we're playing with is one that I created...



Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to go check out the creations from the TMS DT...  They all made my sketch look great!! :)

Thank you, friend - TMS #309


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  My card this week is a sweet thank you for a friend...




I've been traveling (expected and unexpected) quite a bit in the past month, so I took a short cut and used a colored image.  Maybe my life will be normal for a few weeks, and I'll have more time for crafting.  [Ha!  Who am I kidding?!?]  Oh well, one can always hope! :)  
At least my most recent trip means I have a good stash of Lay's Ketchup Chips and All-dressed Ruffles and Mint Aero and Crunchies and more! ;) 

Here's a glimpse of the wonderful place where I was able to be last week... 


Our sponsor for this week is Deedee's Digis!  This adorable image and sentiment are from Love One Another, a really sweet set!! 



Our wonderful sketch for this challenge is designed by Jessi...



Challenges...
Crafting From the Heart #68 - anything goes
Through the Craft Room Door July 14-20 - anything goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #114 - anything goes
Simon Monday Challenge - anything goes
{PIN}spiration Challenge #144 - photo (I was inspired by animal friends)

I'd pick you! -TMS #308


Happy Tuesday to you!  It's time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!  

My card this week has a sweet image and sentiment!  I know you can read this for yourself, but I really like it so I'm going to quote it, too! :)  "If  friends were flowers, I would pick you"  It's just such a sweet sentiment!!  Here's my card...


My DP is Paper Studio "Sweet Pea" and is actually a baby mat stack.  The soft shades were perfect for the image.  The image is "Pick You" from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, who is our sponsor for this week.  A big thank you to Stitchy Bear for providing images for the DT!!  I used my Spectrum Noir markers and then cut and embossed the image with Spellbinders Large and Small Labels





Here's our great sketch by Melissa...
