Ever Present Help




I made this card for the Stampin Sister's in Christ Challenge this week and I used the Mojo 111 sketch. The Scripture for this week was 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."

Pamela Young's challenge was to create something about when God is "unseen"; that reminds us that God is always with us; a card to encourage a friend and remind them that God is with them; or perhaps something to hang on your wall as a reminder.

I chose this wonderful set from Our Daily Bread designs, Keep My Lamp Burning.  It is a go to set for me, especially when I need a more masculine card.  I also find that I love to use K&CO Blue Awning designer paper with this set!  Today I paired it with a caramel textured card stock and a creamy textured cs, both from my stash.  I stamped the image and sentiment with Archival Ink and sponged with Creamy Caramel.  I rolled the sentiment panel up like a map or scroll, added some hemp and a little brass anchor charm along with a few brass brads.  The image is popped up on dimensionals.  Simple and quick but I like how it came out.

I hope you have a blessed weekend!  I have family coming in today through Wed. so I'm looking forward to that, and may not have much to post for a few days.  Thank you as always for stopping by and for taking the time to let me know you've been here!

Wow Grace, you have been busy since the last time I visited! Beautiful works, as always. I think my favorite of the new additions is the "Blessed Christmas" card, and the gift card ornament (an idea I am totally going to CASE!). Obviously, with 160 comments, other people felt the same way ")
