Happy Friday! I can not believe another week has simply flown by! Does it seem like the weeks are just passing by? It does to me. Has anyone used the Romans Road this week? Is anyone still clicking on the Breast Cancer Site? Remember, when you click on the button, the advertisers donate money for free mammograms who need it?
It is Friday, and that means it is Traci's Card Day, here at the He IS Able Blog. I do want to share a few Scriptures with you that are just on my heart to share today. All three share about how close God is to us. He is with us through everything. He doesn't give up when things go astray! He will not leave nor forsake us!
"Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:7
Psalm 46:1 reads: "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble."
And lastly, "And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; for You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you." Psalm 9:9-10
I didn't have as much time to make cards this week, since the beginning of the week we were getting home from Maryland, and Tuesday, I was recovering from exhaustion. Now, some of the cards I made this week:
Play Date Cafe Challenge #50! I am so happy to have this stamp set...it is a former Stampin' Up set of multiple stamps called Terrific Tulips. The flower is actually made from 3 different stamps. I love the background paper! So sparkly! We were asked to make a paper craft with melon, white and green for this challenge. I think that I often make CAS (Clean and Simple) cards. Is it still CAS if the entire background is glimmering?
Color Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts (CPC). It fulfilled the request from the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge, of making a thank you note Our Daily Bread Designs has a weekly challenge...they asked us to make cards with leaves on it! And, over at SplitCoastStampers (SCS), they had a new Technique Challenge! We were instructed to wet down a sheet of paper with water, and stamp with water based ink on the stamps. The water feathers the areas that are still wet...and makes it look more like a watercolor painting in areas! This is so much fun and so easy. When I was a child I used to put water on papers and water color rainbows...or just put dots of water color paint on the wet areas. I had no idea I was making my own designed paper! LOL
I made this card in under 2 or 3 minutes. I used these small dowel stamps from Judith's Stamps. I loved the combination of colors...we were asked to use hot pink, turquoise, dark rust and chocolate chip for that week's PDCC#49! The chocolate chip is the basket, the hot pink, turquoise and dark rust were used in the flowers. The strip of paper is the closest color I had to dark rust...and the background is hot pink. I love this little card. It goes in the opposite direction of all of my cards! It opens like a very wide book...left to right...and opens on the right side. I like this shape. And, all of these cards are A2 size.
I hope that you have enjoyed this week's posts. I would really love to read your comments on this week's writing...I have only received one comment in almost 2 weeks. I know you are out there...I am wondering if I am doing something differently...and if there is something you would like changed...please leave a comment or email me. My email is on the side bar!
You are important to me. I want you to enjoy and be blessed by this blog. I want you to participate in this blog if possible. I am sure if you asked the people who shared, if they were blessed by the experience they would all say, "Yes, I was blessed by sharing about my Lord!" So, please think about it. I really would like your input! I hope you will stop by on Monday!
He IS Able!
