A Good Reminder

This card is for Flutterby Challenge #82 at Danni's Dreams and for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge #11.  Danni is letting us have an open week for Flutterby Challenge as long as our card has a Flutterby on it.  I hope Danni is feeling much better.  Danni and her kids have had the flu.  Last I heard the kids had bounced back, but Danni still wasn't feeling too well.

The verse for this Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge is Deuteronomy 31:8, "The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged." (NIV)  We were challenged to create something about when God is unseen.  Something that will remind us that God is with us.  This is subject is such a great reminder that God is always with us.  It was a real blessing to my heart as I worked on this card.  The verse on my card says, "He will never leave you or forsake you". The center of the silk flower is a glitterly faux brad to match the Stickles I put on the image flower centers.
 


Blessings
  • A friend who has been sick is doing much better.
  • It was so nice out today.  Cooler and breezy.  I had to spend some time outside just for the sheer joy of it.
  • The gift of laughter.  We've been chuckling over a humorous incident for two days.
  • A visit from my daughter today. 
Have a fabulous day!!!

Inky hugs!

An awsome card! I love the colors and the added sparkle of the faux brad and the stickles. I'm hoping to still get a card in for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. :)
