Trust and Prayer

Happy Saturday!

I'm having a relaxing weekend and finally got to play with my stamps! YAY!I love this verse...sometimes life gets a little overwhelming and I think He's crazy, but, I go back to this verse and really hear it and it just sort of keeps me going!

I have to tell you that one of my favorite things about this challenge is just how different each little piece of art can be...I got some new Papertrey stamps--LOVE THEM--and this one just totally came out completely opposite of the 'homey' shabby look of my Trust card. So cool!

Here it is:These are great verses! AMEN! Thank you, Jesus...such great promises He made to us.

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend...I don't have alot of plans, just hanging out and going to eat with family tonight. Tomorrow will be clean up day and then I get ready to go to Tucson for work next week. Never been there--anyone have any suggestions about what to do??

Take care,

Here's one of the reasons why I'm behind on my posts and Scripture Challenge--can you guess where we are??I decided to pull out some Jenni Bowlin paper and crepe paper ribbon that I had never used, even though I bought it WAY back in September. Lately, I've been really feeling like I need to USE what I ever look around your room/scrap area and feel like that?? Well, anyway, I used that stuff and one of the new Edger punches they have at Michael's...ugh, I have an edge/border punch obsession...stop me now!!I used the verses Matthew 5:12 and 2 Cor 12:9. Both verses really jumped at me...God is good!

I'm going to leave you with the final post of my ATC came in the mail and I know it only has the two cards, but I can see it filled up and looking so AWESOME! :)

Scripture Challenge 2009

EDITED: I posted that I was doing the His Holy Name, where actually I'm doing the Scripture Challenge 2009...I didn't understand there was a difference, but am now on the right track I think! :) Enjoy...

Well, I definitely, have NOT had time to keep up my blog...shame on me! It's so time consuming and I guess with the holidays and everything, it's been a while since I've shared anything. I am participating in the Scripture Challenge 2009 on Splitcoaststampers, so I figured, if nothing else, I'd share my weekly challenge entry on here.

I'm excited about doing this--as a Catholic, I know that alot of us, including myself, aren't as good at 'quoting' His word, but I want to try and open my heart to really knowing it, as opposed to just knowing 'the gist' of it, that I get from the weekly gospel. This really was put upon my heart, and I'm thankful that I get to do it.

I'm using an ATC format--never really done these, but have ordered the 7 Gypsies ATC holder and think it'll be awesome once I finish. I *LOVE* this size...I'm going to definitely start using these as starting points for some new cards, it's fast and easy, and I love it, really, I do!

Here's my entry for this week; the word we reflected on was PEACE.

It's pretty self explanatory; I used MM Sabrina product line, with a binder clip thrown on the top (ribbon is MM Sabrina, too). The chipboard piece was a Michael's $1 find (awesome!) and the jewels were from Hobby Lobby.

I think I'm off on my weeks, but hopefully this week I'll figure out what I'm doing wrong! ;)

Have a GREAT week...
