Great Strength!

How very true it is that Strength comes from God.  I know that right now my children are sick and struggling. I am tired from lack of sleep (my little boy woke up every 45 to 60 minutes needing his nose wiped!) and I feel a bit drained.  Thankfully the Lord Jesus is there for me using my frame for His service to my family.  I love knowing I can rest in Him for He is always there for me.  Praise God for His faithfulness!
I am entering this card in Word Art Wednesday's challenge.  For this card, I used the Word Art from a wonderful Christian lady and fellow sister in Christ Jesus - Karen at Papercraft Memories. I am truly blessed by what she shares, I highly recommend you visit her! For the rest of the card, I used some Tim Holtz distress in in sage to soften the edges of the quote, matted it to some misc cardstock and tied a rope around it.  I popped this up on some great paper from K&Company and some handmade paper from my collection. The edges I've distressed and added a bit more ink to darken them.  The buttons to are from my collection and I just unravelled some of the rope that was left over and tied it onto the buttons and adhered them to the card.
Thank you so much for dropping by! I love being able to share with you!

You've been busy again girl! LOL I'm so sorry I'm so far behind on commenting. I usually do it at night and last night I had a bad headache and hit the sack early. All of your card posts are wonderful. Such a great variety of styles. It's always a joy to view them. Hope you're getting some rest and your little ones are feeling better. Be blessed!
