There are just a few more days left in the month of March.  And that means a new release from Our Daily Bread Designs is just around the corner.  Today, I have a card full of luscious layers created with a few items from the March release including, Grace's StrengthLavish Layers Die and Filigree Frames Die.  I started with a basic white card stock base measuring 4.25 x 11 inches (scored and folded at 5.5 inches...)

And are there ever layers on this card?  It's almost a yummy as my Mama's German Chocolate Cake...

As I write this post, I am battling a terrible sinus infection...  fever, headaches, sneezing...  the whole nine yards!  It looks like the next few days, Easter included, may be a little less eventful than usual.  This particular sentiment couldn't have come at a more perfect time!  The fever, the aches, struggling to gain my breath...  God really does have it!  And when that day comes (hopefully many years down the road) that I am ushered into His presence...  He got me through it!  Jesus Christ sacrificed it all, down to His very own life so I can be with Him.  You see, if you draw your strength from our Lord and Savior, nothing can stop you!  Not even this old nasty bug!  Blessings...

Happy Easter!

Good morning!  Happy Easter!  Today I would like to share a slightly different card...  not a traditional Easter card...  I love this sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs' Superstar stamp set.  

We are created in His image.   Imagine if he loves his creation (in this case the stars) enough to name each one...  I can only imagine how much he loves us!  He suffered, bled and died for our sins!  But it didn't end there.  He arose from the grave 3 days later...  He defeated death once and for all so we can spend eternity with Him, if we accept Him as a personal Lord and Savior!  
Happy Easter!

It's the Little Things

Image
When you are feeling blue or suffering physical ailments, it is the little things that lift your spirits.  It's the text from a friend checking in on you, a note from your Sunday School class letting you know they missed you last week...  It really is the small stuff that makes a BIG difference.  It is times like those when it is important to listen for that still, small voice and KNOW that God is near.  Hopefully, this card will brighten someones day and remind them to stay close...
