It's the last week of August! How can this be? Did your summer fly by too?
The grandkids started the new school year this week, my goodness they are getting so big.
First day of school (Jake, Tucker, Riley & Addy)
I hope that this weeks Scripture art will bless you as it has me. It's Psalm 143:10 (see the end of the post) and I've made a card for our challenge over at the Word Art Wednesday blog (family friendly - anything goes). This weeks sponsors are Newton's Nook ($20 gift card) AND Polly's Paper Studio (digital). Hope you will link up your creations with us!
I've used an embossing folder with autumn leaves on the top layer (5.25 x 4") not sure of the manufacturer of the folder (sorry!) it's not marked and the packaging is long gone!
I diecut using the Cottage Cutz cross-stitched squares for the two top pieces. The pattern paper is from Carta Bella (Fall Break 6x6 paper pad), the orange ribbon is from my "stash" I've collected over the years from a Taylor Expressions kit. The natural hemp is from Darice. The Distress Inks used were Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany and Crushed Olive. My card base is a natural 80# Neenah card stock. I've used a solid rust to cover the base front, also from the Carta Bella paper pad. This card design was really quick to put together and there are a lot of options if you were to make a gift set. I usually make sets of cards for my sisters who have birthdays in November. This may be one of the designs!
This weeks Scripture is a plea from David to the Lord. What a powerful chapter (be sure to read it all), it truly shows the frailty and humanity of David (just like us!) and we all go through trials no matter how long we've been serving Christ. But David knew who to turn to and who to trust for deliverance. Sometimes we may think that God has forsaken us when we don't see the answers to prayer that we desire or the trial may be lasting much longer than we anticipated, whatever the situation might be... we need to cry out to the Lord to teach us and lead us because He is good and desires only the best for us. His righteousness insures us He will be faithful and it's His faithfulness that insures He will be righteous. We can trust the Living God for He is compassionate and gracious and completely faithful to you! Great is His love for us. Be encouraged today - Jesus loves you so very much.
