Isaiah 25:1

To make my card I scanned Isaiah 25 & 26 from my Bible and printed it out on white cardstock to use as my background.  I used the Scripture Word Art from Word Art Wednesday 
I printed this out on my computer, trimming it close to the verse.  I then sponged black ink around all of the edges and attached it to my card with 3D foam dots.  I then sponged black ink around all of the edges of my card...added a black bow to the top center and then attached four black brads.

For You

Made this card using this adorable image from Artbymiran called Annabelle
I colored her in with Memento markers.  For the background of my card I embossed it with a flower pattern, I wanted the background color to match the main color of her dress...so I sponged on a pink background, then sponged some white over it.   I cut out Annabelle and attached her with 3D foam dots.  I added a blue bow to the one corner, and then added two flowers, adding clear gems to the centers.  I then used a 3D sticker of a jar with flowers that says For You.

Just A Note with Butterflies

I just found a new blog called CCEE STAMPERS
I like what I see on there :-)
Their challenge right now is to Repurpose Something.
I have a friend who sews onto cards, and a while back she sent me a card with a beautiful butterfly on it.   That is what I am "repurposing".
Here is the card I made:
I embossed a white card with a Sizzix Butterfly corner pattern embossing folder.  I colored in the butterflies and the patterns on there with Memento markers.  Then stamped on the Just a Note.
On the card from my friend, I cut the butterfly off, and attached it with 3D dots.

Isaiah 45:18

I made this card to display the Majestic-ness of our Lord God.
I cut out a large circle (earth) and used several colors of ink and paint on it.
I printed out Isaiah 45:18, cutting each sentence and separating them on to my card.
I then used a star punch, adding a star to each top corner.

Isaiah 45:18 
For this is what the LORD says— He who created the heavens, He is God; He who fashioned and made the earth, He founded it; He did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— He says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other."
