Digital Burlap Elegance


"Have you felt like the world lately seems to be overflowing with loud voices of discord and actions of violence. We can make a positive difference for our future...for our children's future...for our children's children's future. With God all things are possible and I will rejoice in Him. ---I stand in faith firmly--that
Throughout My Day, In Creativity, In my Walks Alone, As I share an Innocent Smile. I invite my Heavenly Father God & Creator to fill and overflow my being, encourage and strengthen my soul for his purpose...for My Hearts desire is to be used to make a difference..if it be just one at a time as a butterfly gently flutters to each flower, let it start with me. "

Hello Fellow Crafters,

Sharing with you today a fun and easy card I made using We Are 3 digital papers and sentiments available HERE in the Miss Daisy Stamps Shop which carries several fabulous Designers digital images. Pop on over and join the Facebook Page HERE.

                                Holiday Wishes Collection
                       
                            Thoughtful Sentiments Collection

Pastel Burlap Collection



It was fun making this card sometimes it is the easiest thing to do by adding multiple layers of borders using your border punches, dies or going old school using your fancy edged scissors to give your card an elegant look. I added a strip I cut with the musical notes design paper to give the fancy border a pop next to the beautiful sold color of the turquoise-Pale Burlap Collection wrapped the edge with ribbon.  Then as my main feature I merged* the We Are 3 Thoughtful Sentiment onto the turquoise burlap design paper. 
*Special Tidbit*
There is so much you can do with  digital images like sizing and merging sentiments/images onto design paper.  I use Microsoft Word to print and merge any paper, sentiment or images for my design styles. Here is one link that got me started...hope it helps you look into playing with digital images.



                           Items Used to make card:

Fun with Digital Burlap Paper and More...

Featuring We Are 3 Digital Papers -:
Pastel Burlap Collection, Miss Daisy Collection and
We Are 3 Sentiments -  Let Us Be Collection and Courage Collection

Hello Fellow Crafters,

"In these times lately...I  have been finding it is becoming hard to watch people not stay true to the morals our parents once taught us...it is all being lost...thrown and tossed about in this chaotic world of increasing division in opinions and cyber-bullying...sad as it tears apart people and breaks hearts.  I pray everyday to my Heavenly Father to have mercy on me/us as we learn to see he is God in the midst of the storms of life. "
Joshua 1:9
Be Strong and Courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Fun creating with Farm Life Collection Papers

Featuring We Are 3 Digital - Farm Life Collection Papers & Be Attitudes Sentiments 
*****
As I was creating my card with the Be Attitude sentiment " Stand firm in the faith" a short version of the scripture 1 Corinthians 16:13 - Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. It encouraged me as it soaked into my inner most being to be strong...dig my boots down deep into my faith with courage...as I have come to know God has always been at my side through my life's topsy turvy situations.  One day your as healthy as could be and the next your seeing the world in slow motion. I can honestly look back and see God has has been with me all along. Thank you Heavenly Father for loving me as I am.
*****************************
Being a Texas homegrown girl I had fun creating with the We Are 3 Digital  - Farm Life Collection papers and encouraging Be Attitudes Sentiments.

I used four of the sheets from this Collection.

Card Details:
5x5 size card
Spellbinder Dies: in'spire Cowgirl Stomp boots, D-Lites/Make a Wish, Labels 42 Decorative Elements, Back to Basics Tags

I Sing to the Lord in my Romantic Garden

I am standing in faith and reverence to God as he pours his loving-kindness into my life and caresses me with his unconditional love.  I sing to the Lord a new song as I sit and rest in Him in his romantic garden reminiscing on  his grace and mercies in my life journey.

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

********
My Blog Post and Card making seem to be few and far between lately. They are taking me longer to make but the joy and love in every detail is still there in my creative heart to share with you...I seem to be having such a hard time with my health issues adjusting my body to have enough energies left to craft and Blog Post with some of my new changes at home having my 80 year old Mom living with me. She does not drive so getting coordinated for two different lifestyles on store errands, doctor, prescription refills, household duties, cooking is slowly coming to some sort of order. I thank the Lord my sense of humor is growing as I share all this being able to giggle...I have been single for a long time so this is like moving in with a new partner learning each others habits and adjusting to our different character traits. I know it's my Mom but living together is not the same. We are coming to some new understandings and I thank the Lord that we start and end our days inviting God into our little home and world as we find humor and laughter. We are both growing and learning even more to lean, ask God for perseverance and invite the Lord, Savior, Jesus Christ to be at our side...some days I am slower learning the  hard way. I have been seeking him in prayer a lot lately from the deepest part of my soul for forgiveness for my words, actions and non-actions. We are both learning not to be so sensitive.
******************************

I am happy to share that I am blessed to be on the We Are 3 Digital Papers Design Team part-time. I absolutely love the Digital Papers, Sentiments and now Images and Precolored images. You can see and visit the We Are 3 Digital Shop in the Miss Daisy Stamps Store which has a variety of Designers making their beautiful, fun and fabulous digital products available.

The Lord Bless and Keep you...



Hello Fellow Crafters,

It has been 3 months since I have made a card, been on Facebook or posted on my Blog.  All is well...it is just I had to take some time away and get my 80 year old Mother settled into my home.  It was an all of a sudden decision and I had to do alot of rearranging and getting her settled as I tried to get my bodyaches to calm down with all the new movement. We thank the Lord she is in good mental and physical health. She does have her arthritis and heart issues but she is very blessed to be able to still take care of herself.  

I wanted to make my card with you all in mind...as I had the Scripture--Numbers 6:24-26 in heart to bless you. 
  May the Lord bless and protect you, may the Lord's face radiate with joy because of you; may he be gracious to you, show you his favor, and give you his peace.

I have been so blessed to have opened my heart and eyes to seek God and his tender loving-kindness when I was in my late 20's. He continues to show is grace and unconditional love as I live my imperfect sinful life in yearning to draw closer and be a shining light toward his Son, Jesus Christ.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I do want to share with you what dies, digital design paper, sentiments I used to make my card.  I used We Are 3 Digital Paper/Miss Daisy Collection  & Be-Attitudes Sentiments  these and more are available in the Miss Daisy Stamps Digital Store.

The dies I used are Spellbinders Nestabilities Radiant Rectangles and Die-namites Swirly Butterfly.

I would like to enter this card into Miss Daisy Stamps Create & Share Facebook Group Monthly Challenge - THEME: Spring is Coming.

It is good to be back playing in my craftroom. I hope to share alot more of my new card designs in time.

Until next time...May Gods Blessings of Health, Joy and Happiness overflow
