SNTODBD10 & SSCC30 Trust in the Lord

Hi Friends !

This week's Stamping in Time challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs is a sketch challenge ! I love a good sketch and this one is a real good one, don't you think ? You can find all the info at ODBD here . This is also for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge which is to use sponging or distressing.

I am knee deep in grad prep and need a bunch of graduation cards too so this may be the first of a few you see here. Most of my cards need to have a masculine feel so I will be stretched challenge -wise !

I am using dp from Basic Grey's Max and Whiskers pack. I have distressed the brown dp which is layered over mustard dp. The sentiment is from Scripture Collection ... such a wonderful verse... it's stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I have used a thin rope-like border to add interest to the top and bottom of the Scripture panel. The panel and it's mat was cut out and embossed with a Curvy Rectangle from Spellbinders. Buttons are from Basic Grey and twine is from May Arts. All the edges have been distressed slightly. Pretty quick and easy and I do need quite a few more of "quick and easy" !

Thanks so much for stopping by ! I so appreciate that you would !

Hugs !

You are right about this being a very good sketch to follow. I love the stripes, and this verse. The verse means a lot to me because there are so many things in life that are beyond my understanding! I just keep trusting His leading. Thanks for the reminder to me today. Love ya!

Hi Crystal:
I just looked at all of your posts I also noticed that you like me have not been posting. here there has been many health issues first with our son (37yrsold) a mild heart attack and mild stroke, them I found out I am now a diabetic, and last but not least our 4 yr old grand daughter broke her lower part of her leg both bones a clear break and will be in a cast for the next 6 months I am doing my best to cope with all of this and I did post about the baby on my blogs. with Pix. I hope all is well with you. ~ God Bless ~
