Happy Little Stampers March 2017 Mixed Media Challenge – Books

Hi! I’m very happy to be here with you today with a card for Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge.

Our  challenge:

Here’s my card.
I started this card by creating a smooshed Brushos background panel.  Then I stamped with some real leaves, inked up with green ink. I made the basic panel with the Brushos and the leaves first summer at the first HLS retreat in Swindon. I finished the card back at my house in Germany. At my house, I stamped with the large script stamp in gold metallic ink. img_4067_edited-1I traced the leaves with white gel pen and added the stamped book spine and a piece of self-made Scripture designer paper.

Good News in Black and Red

CASology Cue Word for Week 141 is “News.” I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get tired of the “news”. When I saw the cue word though, what popped into my mind was how I love goods news! Then, a Bible verse, Phil 4:8, came to mind.

Here is card that I made using that verse.

I used PTI’s Happy Hearts and A Cheerful Heart stamp sets for this card.

I made 2 other slightly different versions of this card. Look here and here.

The New King James Version of this verse speaks of a GOOD REPORT! I’m currently having to trust God with lots of doctors appointments and test results. I got 1 good report yesterday and will be having another big test tomorrow. Honestly, I’ve been dreading tomorrow’s test, so keeping my mind focused on this verse today as been a struggle. God knows all about me though, and He has good plans for me, He won’t abandon me and I will think on these true things, this good news report.

Thanks for stopping by!

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
