Butterfly Basics

Today I wanted to share a card for two challenges.


The first challenge is this sketch from the Challenge Blog, Case this sketch, which can be found here.


The second challenge is a from the blog ColorQ, which can be found here.


And this is my card - for the first sketch the three words of my sentiment count for the three tags bottom right. I used a scrap paper and embossed the butterfly in white. It is such an effective, decorative stamp.

Thank you for visiting me. Oh yes, these stamps are newly acquired Stampin' Up Stamps called Butterfly Basics. I love them and have always wanted a lace butterfly stamp.

Have a lovely weekend!

I have to share a little testimony. Yesterday I wasn't feeling too good and had some words with my DH, kind of doubting his love for me which is just ridiculous, and I noticed it hurt him. While I was making the meal I thought, Lord you know how much I love my son... just think if he said to me, Mum, I really don't believe that you love me as much as you say you do... it would shatter me. Now, think about how much God loves us! Just think how God must feel, having given everything, everything He had to bring you to Himself and we just say - yeah but I don't believe that you really love me that much.... Doubting the love He has for us - no, it is unthinkable, and still we do it. It gave me a lot to ponder on.

  10. Precious thoughts, Jacqueline. I was also having a struggle with one of my sons. God showed me that some unforgiveness was piling up in my heart, I confessed it and I felt such a relief. Sometimes we do not realize...
