It's Friday and let's thank God for blessing us with one! The Bible say it's a great thing to thank the Lord, and that we must give thanks in all circumstances to God the Father through our Lord Jesus Christ! Let us remember all the time that there is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for. And these two cards that I'm about to share to you are thank you-themed. :)
I sponged around the sentiment using my pastel chalk then sprayed Glimmer Mist Pearl on it afterwards. Before adhering the sentiment to the card, I used a yellowish satin ribbon for embellishement. Short, simple and sweet!
Here's another shot:
Thank you once again for visiting my blog and I want you to know that I do really appreciate it. May God's blessings and guidance be upon us always!
(And remember to thank GOD for everything!) :)

Happy Thursday fellow bloggers and stampers! I want to share with you today a card I made for the Sketch Challenge(SC286) this week over SCS. At last, this sweet image was finally inked after months since I purchased it from a Craft Show. This image was from JEMAC Stamps and unfortunately, the stamp name wasn't on the label when I bought it. But isn't she so sweet to look at with her smiling face (even while sleeping) and the ribbons on her hair? :)
I was just actually practising my colouring with Copics and I chose this image when I ended up liking how it turned out! LOL! I bet you can relate with me and you had those moments, too! So, I decided that I would use her on a card but slept on it 'cause I still didn't have any lay-out on my mind yet. And this morning, while I was doing my daily browsing at SCS, I saw the sketch challenge for this week and thought, hey! this lay-out would be perfect for my image. And so I gave it a try. :)
Windsor Cottage Botanicals at a very reasonable price. :) The checkered ribbon is from my stash and so is the button. I finished off the card with some Kaiser pearl Blush on the four corners.
Thanks for the visit and have a blessed day!

Yay! I finally got the chance to ink my newest ODBD stamp set called "You Are The Potter" which I won few months ago from ODBD Shining the Light Challenge. Thank you very much ODBD team especially to their very kind and sweet owner, Kelley! God bless you more, Kelley and thank you so, so much!
This card is my entry for FS176 in honour of Iris and for Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge#44 set by Candace Mitchell based on Psalm 119:105: "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."
The challenge is to make a card using stamped words/verses/sentiments only (no stamped images).
This Bible verse from the book of Isaiah is really, really true as God is really the "Potter" of our life who moulds us to be like His son Jesus Christ. Whoever we are, our whole being, our totality is a wonderful work of our loving God. The verse was stamped using Versacolor Amethyst and was cut with Long Rectangle Nestabilities. I sponged around the panel (while still inside the die) using Versacolor Misty Mauve and Petal Pink, sprayed with Glimmer Mist Pearl then matted it with onto an orange cs. The lovely dsp is from Stacy Claire Boyd Eye Candy Collection (Garden of Love) which I bought from All About Scrapbooks few weeks ago. The dsp is so gorgeous because of its bright but not overwhelming design. The colours are so lively! I did some piercing around the other panel and finished off the card with pearls, ribbon and a button that compelements the greens on the card. :)
Thanks so much for your visit. This is my 2nd post for the day so just kindy scroll down so you can see the earlier post.
Good night and I'll see you again next post. God bless us all!
