Rejoicing Through...

He was there all along...
Digital Image- Misteri-My Guitar, Created by JenLee - DigiStamps4Joy

Sharing with you this special card I made with one of my favorite of many Misteri images called 'My Guitar' created by JenLee at DigiStamps4Joy. I slowly put it together as I working my way to healthy restoration. I had a really tough battle with a combination of Crohns attacks and a severe upper resperitory infection which made it hard to keep my energies up for long periods. I am so grateful that during those rough and tough times I can lean on God and see that he longs to encourage and bring sunshine into my days.  And one of his blessings is during those times my creativity is  tickled.   In this life journey I am having fun using an array of sorts of pretty shades of yellow on my designs. My heart is happy God is the bright light that overwhelms the darkness that tries to come in and take over my life sometimes so this card is for myself and I plan to frame because it has a special place in my heart as God was my strength when I was at my weakest. 
 I am rejoicing. I am finally doing a lot better.

I had fun making my handmade flowers with old blue jeans and inter-mingling with Martha Stewart Aster flower punch, Recollections flower punches, Spellbinders Shapebilities Rose Creations Shape and pre-made flowers.  I used Anna Griffins dies I bought last year sometime through  She has really been delivering us crafters some marvelous new dies and embossing folders amongst other goodies.

I used Spectrum Noir to color my fun and precious image, Misteri 'My Guitar' as I put lots of pretty layers of dies to showcase her.
