His Love for You!

His-Love-for-thee

Hello my blogging friends!  Today I am sharing a tri-fold card I made using several Our Daily Bread designs sets.  The ocean scene is from the Feb. release (to be released Feb. 1), The Mighty Sea, as are the sentiments. I made a belly band from twine attached to my sentiment tag. 

On the inside, I also used ODBD's very first set, Light of the World, and also Footprints SetI also used the ODBD Fence Die and some hemp twine.


His-Love-for-Thee-Inside

I used Gina K and SU! Kraft card stock, as well as Bazzill Sea Foam matting.  The card is 5" wide x 5.5" high.  I stamped all my images with Memento London Fog Ink, and then colored with my Pastels, which had long been neglected. I highlighted a few places with SU! Markers, and then  I spritzed everything with Pearl Glimmer Mist to set the chalks.  The dies I used are Spellbinders Grommet Tags, Labels Three and Labels Twelve. 



His-love-for-thee-verse

Be sure to visit the ODBD Blog on Feb. 1 to see the full release and participate in the hop, for lots of chances to WIN!  Hope to see you then!!!


I am playing along today with the Stampin Sisters in Christ, where Linda has chosen  Philippians 4:8 for the Scripture.


“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.." 
Be sure to stop by and read Linda's thoughts today.... you will be blessed!  I do think of  this verse so often.  It seems that when we are prone to get discouraged, upset, depressed.... often, we have to examine what we are dwelling on in our mind.  As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.  Have you ever noticed that if you dwell on a bad thought... perhaps you are upset with your spouse about something, or perhaps you are having a pity party... or whatever.... when you allow yourself to dwell on the wrong thoughts, soon your entire mood and emotions follow those thoughts!  So I find myself reminding myself of this verse when my thoughts are taking me down a wrong or unproductive path.  I also share this verse often with friends who are depressed or angry.  Isn't God's Word amazing... it has a solution for all our problems, if we only will really listen and apply it's truths!
I am entering this in the following challenges:
Chalk-Ah-Lot Cafe -Do chalk Direct to Paper, Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Your Style (I love combining sets, coloring, and lots of details), That Craft Place - Oh I do Like to be Beside the Seaside, The Hybrid Chick Card Caravan -Punches/Dies, Crazy 4 Challenges - Layer it on, Drunken Stampers -  Use Something New (stamp set), Marks Finest Papers -#92 Cards with at least 4 layers, My Sheri Crafts  - New Things, Stamp, Scrap and Doodle -  Anything Goes, Card Makin' Mamas -something Old (Footprints and Light of the World sets), Inspire Me Fridays – Link Up Party, Stampin With The Dragon - 2W, SIO – Week 2, Anything Goes, Crafting for all Seasons -  blue and white, I Brake For Challenges - fancy folds, Simon Says Stamp - anything goes, Stampavie and More - blue and white, Tandastamps -  scenic,  365 Cards - Nautical, Word Art Wednesday - Scripture or inspirational quote... one is offered each week or use what you are working on.
