BFF Thanks

Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by. Today I have a card with lots of goodies made for a friend who gift ME a Simon says gift card! So, of course I just had to make her a card with the new goodies courtesy of her.

The flowers were heat embossed in gold, then watercolored. The back ground paper is from MME On Trend 2. The "thanks" die is actually from craftin' desert divas, then I heat embossed in the same gold tone as the flowers. Finished the card off by adding gold sequins!

I think the longest part of making this card was to cut the flowers!

I am entering into the following challenges:
Simon Says Anything Goes

and to top this off
Craftin Desert Divas In the Garden Linky Party

Have a blessed day!

Born Again Bible Journaling

Hi!  I am playing around today with the new set released this month called Born Again. This is a lovely set with wording that can be used is many ways.
The reading of my day ended up in Romans 3: 21-25, I just had to create something to visually remind me of what I had read. However, I had no ideas as to what. I went on to our every trustful Pinterest to find some inspiration. Long and behold I fell in love with the this color inspiration.
That was all I needed!
Prayer words.cthompson
'Those who have faith in Jesus will find renewing mercy and grace."

Romans 3:21-25
21 But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it— 22 the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins.

The concept of a continuance of mercy and grace is a gift of God to us, given through faith in Jesus Christ. 

How cool is it that law cannot withstand the righteousness of God! That we are forgiven our sins by the belief and faith in Jesus Christ. My favorite word here is renewing. The reading of this passage reminds me of flowers in bloom, hence the inspiration.
My flowers are drawn by me and used the words from the Born Again set to make my sentence. I am pretty happy of the way this turned out.

Mother's Day with Crystal Thompson

Hi there! Crystal Thompson here! I am here with one of Joy Clair's new April stamp set called Mother's Day.

This is such a funny and witty set. I wanted to make something simple.

First I die cut a piece of water color paper. Then I sprayed it with some color spritz and set aside to dry. Then I stamped in navy blue ink the cow, trimmed it. Once the watercolor paper was dry, I stamped the sentiment in the same color. I adhered everything together and placed 3D foam on the cow.

This was such a simple card to make, and it super easy. Be sure to stop by on our social media accounts and tell us what you would like to see and anything you absolutely loved on the site.
