Prayers & Praises Journal

Made this Prayers & Praises journal using my Cricut machine to cut out the different shaped pieces inside of the journal - and also the Cross, Dove and words (prayers & praises).   The Scripture verse is stamped on.
I get together every other week with three other ladies and we have a little Bible Study, do praying and praises to the Lord.
I made three of these to give to them at our next meeting...to start out our new year together.
They all look the same.

This week's challenge at Twist of Faith  is Favorites.
Share something using your favorite image or your favorite technique.  It can be about your favorite event that happened in 2013 or about your favorite food or person.  It could represent your favorite toy as a child or your favorite color.  It can even include your favorite verse.

One of my favorite things to do is to make things for people!
(one of the reasons I love to make cards is to give them out to people...just to lighten/brighten their day, encourage them, put a smile on their face, etc.)

Made this Christmas card using stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs...Poinsettia & the Christmas Blessings is from the Cardinal Ornament set.
