Great is Thy Faithfulness

I recently got a new stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs. One of the stamps in the set is a verse from the song Great is Thy Faithfulness which is one of my favorite songs. The verse on the stamp is

Summer and winter, springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
join with all nature in manifold witness
to Thy great faithfulness,mercy & love.

I have already been playing around with the stamp set and have made the following monochromatic card...............

supplies used -
green cardstock - Stampin' Up
patterned cardstock - Graphic 45, Botanicabella collection
background stamp and sentiment - Our Daily Bread Designs, Randi's Song

I am entering this card in the Our Daily Bread Designs Anything Goes challenge and also Word Art Wednesday's challenge #60 - Faith/Anything Goes.

The Christmas holiday is over and a new year ready to start so.............go get your craft on!

A Baby Card for a Special Friend

My friend Lydia is pregnant with her fourth!  Her baby shower was last weekend but I didn't get to attend as I was out of town on an annual "shopping" trip with three friends (I hope to blog about that soon). 

Anyhoo, I wanted to post the card that I made for Lydia.  I used gender-neutral colors since the baby's sex is not known.  I pulled out some papers from two of my favorite paper companies, Graphic 45 and Webster's Pages, and here is what I came up with..........

A very simple (but elegant!) card. 
Supplies used:
yellow cardstock and ribbon - Stampin' Up (Summer Starfruit)
The card size is 5" x 5".  The Graphic 45 paper was attached using foam dimensionals and the bow was attached using (another of my faves) Glue Dots!
I am also submitting this card for the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #56 - God's Goodness.  One of the ways that God's goodness is manifested is through the giving of physical life.  When we look at newborn babies, our first thought is "how sweet"; however, beause of sin, that newborn is at enmity with God and will continue to be as he/she grows unless God opens their spiritual eyes and heart to the Truth. 
"Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good."  - Psalm 107:1
