These are a couple of cards that I wanted to
show you really quickly. The first one
is a card I made for a friend who is in
the hospital. I LOVE that particular verse from Jeremiah.
It does give us hope to know that the Lord does have

Today I want to show you a card I made for Christian Paper Crafts (a link is in my sidebar). It is such a wonderful site. I encourage you all to visit there. It is filled with many VERY talented papercrafters and devoted sisters in Christ. The fact that I am the journal challenge hostess there has NOTHING to do with my love for the place! lol One thing is for sure - I have met so many friends who have helped me through this rough period dealing with my fibrogarbage and waiting to hear about my disability. Their prayers on my behalf, along with the prayers of so many other dear friends both off and online, have definitely been heard and answered by the Lord. He has been so awesome.

I can't believe it has been so long since I have posted here! I was doing so well about posting on a fairly regular basis. My fibro-garbage has been flaring up, and somehow I am busy even though being busy somehow involved sitting on the couch.....Oh well, enough about that. I do have so many challenges that I meant to do and haven't been able to keep up with. I did manage to make this Mother's Day Card. A friend loved it and bought it which was good for my ego! lol I happen to like it myself and I hope you do.
The base card is a soft pink (which I love). I took a darker piece of pink cs, distressed it quite a bit with my CTMH edge distresser, and sponged the edges with some Tea Dye Distress Ink. Yes, I love pink! The butterflies and large flowers were made by fussy cutting from some lovely SEI paper. Some of the pieces already had some glitter, and I added various colors of Stickles to the others. The sentiment is from MSE, which I stamped and heat embossed on a scalloped white cardstock circle I made using a Paper Shapers Punch. I chalked the background with green. You will notice that I also colored in some of the leaves (using Copics) with green. Needed a little break from all that pink! : ) I even added a little green flower and brad at the lower left corner of the card, over the white lace. Added 3 green pearls from my stash in the upper left corner, and some white Prima pearls in a swirl. Adhered everything with 3-D Dots and folded up the butterfly wings for some dimension. Think that about covers that!
I'm sending this in to 2 challenges. The first is Cupcake Craft Challenges. Their challenge this week is to make a card that is not square shaped. They are giving a wonderful prize from The Stamping Boutique, so stop by! The other challenge I am entering is at A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge Blog. Their challenge is to do any kind of 3D card. They also have a wonderful prize by Bunny Zoe's Crafts - a stamp called Mimosa's Birthday and a sentiment stamp that says Hugs and Kisses. So you need to stop by their blog also and have a look. If for any reason these links don't work, they are in my sidebar!
Hope you have a blessed day, and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
