Cow are You?

So Cow are you? I often know that this is a generic saying.....that people don't really wait or care about the answer.  I'm not one of those people.... if I ask, then I want to know.
Today I have a card to share with you using the Cow are you set by Clearly Digi Stamps and I think it's just so fun. I used the pre-coloured version, cut it out and layered it over some Recollections paper I have.  I added some washi tape (my very first!) and then a felt daisy with some bling swirls. are you? I'd love to hear from you! I hope you're all having a great day....even if the only great part about it is cowting your blessings.
If you have a chance to pop over to the Clearly iStamp blog and see some wonderful inspiration!

There's Music in My Soul Today

There is music in my soul today since the Saviour set me free.....
I just love to hear the birds singing, especially when I open the windows first thing in the morning!  I just love how God has created the birds to sing and it always makes me feel happy to hear them!
Today I have a card to share with you that I've created for the Card Crafter's Circle challenge Thank you for the music.
This week we have Mel Jen's as our wonderful sponsor and this image that I've used is called Little Bird's Song and can be found HERE at the Mel Jen's store.

I used papers from Marianne Designs and some Doodle Bug twine and buttons from my collection.  The sentiment is from Tina Wenke as well.
I often think of this hymn as I listen to the birds Sunshine in my Soul and find myself singing along with the birds.  Strange perhaps.....but that's just me.  You can find the hymn HERE or HERE if you'd like to have a listen and read the lyrics.  That is if you aren't already singing this to yourself now! hehehe
I do hope you have a Happy Day today and if you have time I'd love for you to join us at the Card Crafter's Circle with something musical!

On the front I added some crochet flowers with brad centres and die cut leaves and the image is framed with an edge cut with decorative scissors.  The inside highlights this sentiment from the set and I thought it would be just perfect for my card!

Card Crafter's Circle Sketch

Today is the beginning of a new challenge at the Card Crafter's Circle! It's sketch time and I encourage you to try it out! 

Praise God he knows more than I do! I have so many times struggled with no knowing the future or understanding why certain things are allowed to happen.  Then I look at God's Word and verses like this just pop out at me!  God knows, and I need to rest in His wisdom and understanding which are far greater than my own.
During our family Bible time today we were reading through Genesis and the account of God's covenant that he made with Noah.  God in his wisdom and knowledge of all things future makes this covenant with Noah and mankind.  To not flood the earth entirely ever again.  To prosper Noah and mankind again.  Every time I see a rainbow, that covenant, that promise is declared!  God is Faithful!  and as He is faithful in his promise to never flood the entire earth again, he is faithful in His promise in His New Covenant; of his blood that pays the price for all sin.  By believing on the finished work of Christ Jesus on the cross, repenting of our sin and turning to him we can be forgiven and receive eternal life!  What an incredible gracious God!  In his great understanding and wisdom from before the world and time, He made a way to save my soul!  How can I not trust in Him for my everyday struggles?  How can I not run to Him in my times of need?  He is there! As I rest in Him and learn of Him I am also learning how his thoughts and ways are so unlike all of the ones I see around me.  May I always grow in grace and knowledge of my Saviour Jesus Christ that I may understand his thoughts and ways and not my own or the ones of this fallen world we live in.  Looking forward to being in His presence forevermore!

For my card I have used this beautiful image called Butterfly and Sunflowers by our sponsor Eureka Stamps and a scripture passage word art created by Karen from Papercraft Memories.  The papers are from Marianne Designs and I added some great iridescent pearls.
Do pop over to the Card Crafter's Circle and see the wonderful inspiration from the design team!
I would like to share this card with Word Art Wednesday.

Leaving a Legacy

Hi Everyone, it's midway time for the Scribbles Designs Challenge for Mothers or a special woman.  I'd like to encourage you to join in the fun and pop over to the Scribbles Challenge blog to see some wonderful inspiration as well! For my part I've created this card using Sandy's wonderful rose image found HERE at the Scribbles Designs Store.

I used some wonderful paper from the Dollar Store and some lace I had in my stash. I added some bling and a sentiment from Portafolia.  As I was making this card I was thinking of the wonderful legacy that some ladies have left behind them.  Legacies of trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation and sharing it with others, of caring for their families unselfishly and being true solid friends.  These women inspire me to follow in their footsteps as a woman and to follow after the Lord Jesus Christ they followed, learning from Him.
"Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ." -1 Corinthians 11:1
I would like to share this card with Word Art Wednesday this week and I encourage you to drop by there to.  
Have a beautiful day!
