Something different... and joining in the PDCC 77 challenge

Hallo dear blogging friends! Hope the sun is shining like it is here today.
I don't have to tell you my love for grids, it's also part of my character - using what you have and making something useful with it!
And now a little twist... never knew I would think of yet another way of incorporating inchies onto my cards, but quite by accident, I did. As I was moving things around, a diecut fell on a little pile of inchies and thus my idea was born as you can see.


I punched out inchies from the top cover which is the introduction page to the rest of the Pink Paislee papers, can you follow me? I distressed the diecut and stamped over the top with the Envelope Pattern stamp from Hero Arts, added a flower and button and the card is ready to send! I am entering this in the PDCC challenge this week which has the following inspiration picture:


I have another little testimony to share today. I don't know about you but I can be very nonchalant with my Bank Pass and sometimes loose it for a considerable period of time and don't even go looking for it! So it was again, I had lost it for two weeks already and had to tell DH because I could have lost it outside somewhere or in a shop. We searched the house high and low! Nothing. Then DH, with his wisdom, said, did you pray about it yet? Hmmmm, no, I hadn't. So I prayed while we were searching and received instantly the thought: It's in René's wallet...... and YES, there it was!! Isn't God big in the small things of life??? How big is God then in the difficult things of life - maybe you have a situation today that is causing you problems or sorrow - PRAY to the Father in Heaven - He is there to help all those who call upon Him - in Jesus Name!
