I'm Back and Ready to Get My Craft On!

Hello, Remember Me?

My last post was mid-August but I do have a valid excuse for being away.  The last part of August was spent preparing for vacation.  Then vacation happened from 8/30-9/15.  The last 10 days have been spent getting things back to normal.  It was so nice to get away on vacation but we came home with a pile of laundry in the suitcases and a pile of snail mail in the mailbox.....not to mention the PILE of emails. 

I will be blogging about the trip at some point and posting some pics.  But, for right now, I'm posting a photo of the card that I am entering in the WordArtWednesday challenge this week.

The Bible verse on the card (1 Peter 5:7) is a great verse for consoling those who are grieving or going thru a serious illness.  In fact, it is a verse that we should all take great comfort in not only when things are "bad" but in any situation.  Any care that I have, no matter how great or small, should be cast upon Christ because He does care for me.  He has promised to never leave nor forsake me.
supplies used:
white & red cardstock - from my "stash"
butterfly paper - Red/Black Line Extension II from Jenni Bowlin (JBS Mercantile)
butterflies - Beautiful Wings Embosslits from Stampin' Up


  1. Well, you most certainly got your craft on, girl! This is just BEAUTIFUL, and I love the floating butterflies. When I see a gorgeous creation like this, I immediately PRAISE the precious Lord who inspired you to make it. Our deepest desire at Word Art Wednesday is to encourage you in the Lord to build your daily walk and grow your personal relationship with Him. I praise Him for the art you have shared, and I'd especially like to see you share any, and all, other art He lays on your heart to create this (and every) week. We want to draw our Christian brothers and sisters in Christ closer to Him in their daily walks, and we encourage you to link up ALL the art He inspires you to create so that we have more opportunities to stop by and pray for you. We give God ALL the praise and ALL the glory for the art shared, and we simply want our words and our fellowship to glorify Him and draw you closer to Him in your daily walk. So NOTHING goes unnoticed, and we thank you for all the art that you share with us. Please know that you are a blessing to our ministry, and we strongly encourage you to link ALL the projects you post each week so that we can pray for you, encourage you to draw close to Him, and to bring glory to His precious name. Keep it coming! It's absolutely GORGEOUS and means the world to us to be able to fellowship with you and to encourage you to draw your life closer to Him through crafting. Your art is lovely, Donna, and it enhances our challenges as a ministry to encourage others to reflect on the gifts He has given each of us. Thanks SO MUCH, and always know that as we praise our Lord, we are praying for you - that you will be drawn into a closer relationship with Him through the art He lays on your heart to create. May He bless you as you create and share your projects with us, Donna. To God be the glory....ALWAYS! He is just SO GOOD.
    Blessings and prayers to you my friend, and my sister in the Lord Jesus Christ.
