All purpose card and a life line

We all need life line.  A big one for me was (is)  the verse from Hebrews 13:5 "I will never leave you or forsake you"  When I was 20 I had a boat load of issues and this really spoke to me as a new convert.  When I was 30 the boat was smaller, when I was 40 the boat had somehow grown larger.  At 50, I could look back, watch the boat float far away from me and still I had the verse tucked in my heart.  He never Left me, nor forsook me.  If you live long enough as a Christian you have the deep and satisfying pleasure of having His promises come to pass in your life. It takes Time and Trust.

I made this card for a friend this morning and I wanted to share the thought with my Christian friends and cardmaking with my crafty friends.

A little old school stuff with this card, I will show you the finished card first:




I printed the rose and the bible verse, both of these are Graciellie Designs The sentiment is from the Butterflies set  and the rose was a blog freebie!


I used this old school favorite:

I love the soft pastel look of chalks, they can be erased in the event of a oops!
I use a little bit of hair spray as a fixative.

From this paper I Cricut cut my frame and a few butterflies:





I've been doing a lot of cards the last week with this pad, I tend to try to make as many cards from a pad as possible.  Right now I am enjoying the soft pinks, browns and grays this pad offers.


I also cut the rose leaves for a little dimensional effect over my Cricut cut frame.


I think this is a great all-purpose card.  It is mailable and the message eternal!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Monday!!
