Using my Favorite Colors

Digital Image by Sherri Baldy/My Besties - IMG693

Hello Fellow Crafters and Followers,
Sharing a fun card I colored with my favorite colors turquoise/sky blue with bronze/browns. The adorable image is one of Sherri Baldy's Big Eye Big Head Dolls Digital images you can find in her Etsy Shop HERE. This image is IMG693. She has a Flash-Sale of 50% off going on right now with CODE: YOURSPECIAL50. I am going to be using her images for my Christmas cards this year. So I am happy to have caught the 50% off right now.

I must share the majority of  my cards are inspired by the smiles that fill me inside out as I invite the awesomeness of the Lord God Jesus Christ and his works to come in and refill me with his grace and loving-kindness. There seems to be so many sad and terrible things happening in the world with families and health that can bring a person down and a lot of it has to do with attitude. I have to make it my choice not to let my surroundings drag me into a derogatory state.  And God is good company and listens very well as he fills me with encouragement. 
I had a fun array of craft supplies I used on my card.
