Once you gather all of the words, you will have another special Scripture to inspire you to create while leaving His legacy. Then send us an email at listing each of the staff members who participated in today's hop and the completed Scripture. It's that easy.

Thanks for stopping by and your next stop you will go to Jennifer's blog. Happy Hopping!! :)

My Project

Now for my project that you see above: I did a card for a friend who been going through a difficult time and when I was asked to use the verse of Isaiah 40:31, I thought I have the perfect LO but then my camera broke (which will be here Thurs. of next week) ...then the printer went out a while back and my new one will not be here till Friday and so I knew I have to pull the picture on the cell and the card was born...I use my Eagle stamp that I had and stamped on the cardstock and then color with my water pencils and then stickle it a bit (mountain caps and the water) and use a round puncher on the corner of the cardstock.....then I taped it on the beige Suede paper then a brown cardstock...then I use another stamp for the Title (God is our Refuge and Strength)...which I love and put those double sided adhesives to it to lift it and give dimension to the card as well and add an ornament to the corner of that. Then inside I also decorated it with a saying along with a little ornament...too bad you really can't see the details up close but next time...hope you like it.

Valentine's Day Cards

I made some more Valentine's Day cards with my card making buddies today but I can't post them currently due to cam died...not a good thing and then my cell is not taking good pics...think something is telling me that I need to go I will but I have to wait a few days cause the weather is if I can take a better pic later I will post them. Also made a card for Stampin Shorty Creations challenge. Hope to show that but I have to let Rosie do it first on her site and then I will post it here later. It has been a busy day and bad weather and it looks like we will get more snow in the next few more chance to create and I will be really posting a lot...hehe... once I get the cam situation straighten out. Be blessed and thanks for stopping by.
