Workmanship

Over at Word Art Wednesday the Verse for the day is :    "For we are His workmanship".  What a wonderful bit of knowledge into the World of the Eternal.  Whether or not you believe in there being a Mighty God/ Creator/ Redeemer, you can not deny the beauty of the Creation,  I can not fathom how anyone can be convinced that this all happened because of a chemical serendipity.  I gave my life to the Lord a long time ago and have never regretted one second of walking in the beauty of His ways.  There have been some very hard solitary times in my life, we all have them, but they did not last and I was never truly alone.  Hope never deserted me because I knew I was loved by my Creator.
 
My Card for the  Word Art Challenge #86 http://wordartwednesday.blogspot.com/
is fairly simple.  Actually I make most of my cards simple.  They all have to fit in an envelope and be mail-able.  I make cards to bring a smile or word of encouragement ( don't we all need those?).  I don't go crazy with elements and layers actually I am normally trying to tone things down.  My favorite card maker  Sandra G. who is is a member of OSA makes simply the most beautiful and elegant cards I have ever seen.  They are perfection of composition, image and beautiful papers.  I work at simplifying and creating elegance.  But the funny thing is, it just comes out the way it does.  That actually makes me happy as I enjoy striving for improvement! We are all adding daily tour perfection!
 
First the Word copied into word, what a wonderful gift, scripture stamps in rubber are expensive!
 
 
I make a base, pull out a butterfly that I made yesterday
 
 
 
The lighting in my photos is a little off, I haven't turned my lights on in my stamp room, it is already 80+ and it is only 7:30 am! I took these on my cutter next to the window and the fan.
 
If you don't own a pair of Teflon coated scissors, you really need too!  They are a wonderful tool and you will save a lot of time and some money by not using GooGone to remove Adhesives from your good scissors.  These are made by Paper Studio and I love them, non stick and super sharp!
 
And now the finished card:
 
Knowing who you are is a wonderful Gift the Lord has for all of us, a plan and a purpose in life and the Ability to pursue it are all part of walking with God!  I encourage you to Ask God who he is and What He is all about!
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day!

  5. Ginny: This is just lovely. Your art is just a real blessing to me, as is this post. Yes, it's such a blessing to know who we are in the Lord, and all He has created us to be. I had a "reality check" with that issue today. I was upset, or disappointed, in someone else and started letting it really get me down. I had to allow the Holy Spirit to gently remind me that I am only responsible for MY actions and MY behavior. That sure takes the pressure off, and allows us to be all that God wants for us to be. Thanks for this beautiful reminder. I needed it!
