SCRIPTURE ART JOURNAL ~ 2 CORINTHIANS 12:9

Hello and welcome to my Scripture Art Journal project. The idea is that you journal a verse and then meditate on and memorize that verse. Today's verse comes from 2 Corinthians 12:9 "And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."

I could try to expound on the grace of God but I think this beautiful old hymn states it far better than I ever could:

HE GIVETH MORE GRACE by Annie J. Flint

He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.

Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.

(Chorus)
   His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
   His power no boundary known unto men;
   For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
   He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again. 

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope this post has inspired you. Thanks so much to the many wonderful people who have been such an encouragement to me through these difficult times. God Bless You!

SISTER ACT CARD CHALLENGE #119 ~ ANYTHING GOES

It's time for a new challenge over at Sister Act Card Challenge sponsored by Digital Delights by Louby Loo. We were not given an image to work with so I downloaded a FREEBIE from their site called Rowena Fish, colored it with Copic markers and added some Wink of Stella to the gills, fins and eyelids.

(click on photo for larger view)
 
I layered my image on some beautiful Recollections decorative papers and cardstock, along with some glimmer paper from DCWV that I die cut with the Grand Happy Birthday die from Memory Box. Then I added some little fish charms from my stash to finish it off.

HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #200 ~ YELLOW, BLUE & WHITE

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! We are half way through our 200th Challenge and the theme is Yellow, Blue and White (with the option of Anything Goes).


I used the House Mouse CD collection from Joanna Sheen for my images, printed them out on cardstock, and added a little shading on the mouse with Prismacolor Pencils. I layered it all up on Studio G decorative papers and Recollections cardstock and added flowers punched with SU! punches and adorned with rhinestones.


I took some more decorative paper, wrapped a small gift box, added American Crafts twine and topped it off with a matching gift card.


Together they make a lovely set. I highly recommend these CDs for times when you want these adorable little mice but have limited craft time. Now on to the challenge details.

DOCTOR WHO BIRTHDAY CARD

Hi there! I don't usually post on Sunday, but I had to share a birthday card I made for my daughter who is a die-hard WHOvian.

(click on photo for larger view)

I printed Van Gogh's Starry Night on my color printer and layered it on Recollections cardstock. The stamp is from Viva Las Vegas Plate 925 which is a whole sheet of unmounted rubber stamps with a Doctor Who theme. I stamped the TARDIS on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored the it with B69 (which is the perfect color). I used the Florescent Copic colors FYR1 FY1FB2 FBG2 to color the reflections in the window.

ON THE OUTSIDE:
"Call the Doctor ..." (stamped on twill ribbon)

ON THE INSIDE:
"C**** just time shifted from 21 to 22!"

I stamped a large bow tie (because bow ties are cool) and wrote Happy Birthday, Sweetie! underneath. After my family signed it, I added a few more signatures:
* Happy Birthday from me and "Alien Boy" ~ Donna N.
* I've made you a souffle. ~ Clara
* Hello from over the POND ~ Amelia
* Put on a Happy Face ~ Bo
* Greetings from Sontar ~ Strax
* You bring the music, I'll bring the beating drums. ~ the Master

ON THE BACK:
(because my daughter ALWAYS looks at the back of cards)

I stamped the weeping Statue of Liberty and Don't Blink in Versamark and embossed it with WOW! embossing powder in Verdigris.


Seeing her reaction when she flipped that card over was priceless!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
