MMSC51 Jer. 29:11


Hello everyone! Happy Tuesday! I am just getting settled back in after visiting family this weekend, and celebrating our Granddaughter's birthday. When I saw the Midnight Madness Sketch for this week I knew I had to play along.

This is a sneak peek at one of the new sets to be released May 1 by Our Daily Bread designs, "For the Graduate". Since this is one of my life verses, I had to use it and I know I will use it often! I also used the floral image from the "Mom" set to stamp lightly in VersaMark for the background, and then I rubbed with Sage Shadow chalk. I wanted this card to be more feminine, so I used these pretty designer papers from Websters Pages, a Spellbinder's Scalloped (made out of the backing from my pearls package), some pretty Sage ribbon woven through the frame, ZVA Creative Pearls, a Prima and bling. I also sewed a simple zig zag stitch around the card.

Jer. 29:11 is such a wonderful verse... great for the graduate, but also great for encouragement. God totally has our best interests in mind... He IS love, and His plans for us are good... and FOR our good. I hope you believe that today and find comfort in these words, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
