Hey There! CPS Anniversary Day 7 card & TPE

Hello Delightful Friends and family!
Hope this day is finding you well.  I'm learning to be thankful for God's divine interventions (aka interruptions!).  I'm sure you all can relate to interruptions (big and small) but how many of us really want to be thankful and accept them as part of God's divine plan for our lives?  Just a little thought for the day for you!!  There is a study by Priscilla Shirer that is titled "Jonah, Navigating A Life Interrupted" and I just finished day one, so we will see what other tidbits I can share with you all as I do this weekly study and homework! 

Here is the sketch for day 7 of the anniversary celebration at Card Positioning Systems and I'm sneaking in another color challenge (to use pink) at The Pink Elephant #134 which is also celebrating their 3rd birthday (Congrats to Lori Boyd of By Lori Designs!). 


As you can see (at least I hope you can!) I've flipped the sketch, I was having a real challenge with this one for some reason!  But here it is:

Digi stamp Gretchen (how cute is she!) from the Bug & Roo Collection by Hannah Boyd (By Lori Designs) the sentiment is Taylored Expressions from the Labels of Love set.
I'm still so new to coloring with Copic markers and hair is such a challenge for me to get highlights just right and subtle cheek color!  I really need to take a class but I know a lot of it is practice and there are a lot of great YouTube tutorials available, I just need to find time to do both!

Here are the Copics I've used.

Other ingredients:  Designer Paper: Echo Park (Yours Truly); Card Stock: Bazzill and Neenah.  Spellbinders Nestabilities Deckled Rectangle, Cuttlebug (ProvoCraft); Heart punch (unknown); Hinge Clip (Tim Holtz idea-ology line); Ribbon, American Crafts; Memento Tuxedo black ink; HP printer.

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Matthew 6:33-34

Thanks again for visiting and leaving a delightful comment, it always is a blessing!
