Delight yourself in the Lord!
Ok...first of all, I have to give my supportive readers a ((big cyber hug)) and say "Thank you!" You have all been amazing! Last night was the lowest I had felt in a long time but I am happy to report that God has renewed my spirit and I am feeling 100% better! I have come to realize that I care too much about creating cards that are appeasing to others more than they are to me! Anyway, I have decided from now on, I am going to create a card without (hopefully) worrying about what someone else may think about it. Now, obviously I still want you all to like my cards, but I think it is more important that I be myself! Hehe! So...you may see some changes or you may not! Most of my cards have my style put into them but, from now on, I have decided that all of them will! I hope that makes sense.
Anyway, today's card was a refreshing one for me. I decided to make it using some of my favorite things! If you notice, there is a ton of pink. Did you know that pink is my favorite color? Well it is! :D Also, I used bling. I LOVE bling. I think it's fabulous! Now, I don't think that bling would look great on every card but it definately does on a pink one! Hehe! The third thing, and most important thing, I used on this card is one of my favorite Bible verses! The stamps I used were both Verve. The verse is a Plane Jane and the flower is from the Meditations set. The paper I used was BasicGrey Bittersweet and the ribbon is from Stampin' Up! Also, this sketch is from last Friday's Viva la Verve sketch challenge with a twist. This week's twist was to create a monochromatic card!
I have been talking with Nick and we both agree that I could really use my talents to minister to others so we are going to try and start a card ministry at our church! I am so thrilled that the Lord will be able to use my stamping abilities for His glory! It is just such a wonderful feeling! :D
So...again, thank you. You have helped me out considerably! I feel like a brand new girl! Hehe!
