I Can Do All Things...


Happy Saturday!  I am excited that I got to sleep in this morning.  Nothing like getting a couple extra hours of sleep. *happy sigh*  I'm sure I would have slept longer, had I not received a text message from a certain someone who's in another time zone. lol  I'm also super excited that my daughter will be home this afternoon.  I missed her very much!  I wanted to get some crafty time in before she gets home, so I created this, before breakfast even. :-)

This is my very loose interpretation of VLVJUL2013 sketch challenge over at SCS.  I wanted to keep it very simple, so that the sentiment was the focal point.  There is someone very close to my heart that will be going through something very difficult over the next few weeks, and I wanted to make sure she knew that I was praying for her, and that God would get her through it.  We both know it will all work out in the end, but getting there is often the hardest.  I've really taken a liking to CAS cards, and I LOVE how this card turned out.  It's simple, and beautiful.  I don't use the color purple often, but it's her favorite, so I know she'll love it.  

I've combined the following challenges in my card today:

Word Art Wednesday #87 - Anything Goes
VLVJUL2013 - Sketch (again, my very loose interpretation)
CAS-ual Fridays #108 - Include Fabric, Felt, Canvas,etc. (the bottom layer of my focal panel is SU! fabric glued to cardstock, and then cut out with my Nestabilities to create the "frame")
Crazy 4 Challenges #193 - Lets Get Wordy (focus on sentiment, big or small)

I just found out this morning, that I was chosen as the Diva of the week, for THIS card.  What a shock!  Thanks a bunch!

By the way, don't forget that the new House of Cards challenge will go live on Monday morning.  You still have time to join the current challenge though.  You can click HERE, for all of the details.

I'm off to finish laundry, clean the house, and maybe make something else.  I do hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Wonderful card Steph! I love that sentiment.
I'm so glad to have the chance to choose your card as the winner at Dynamic Duos. It was just so perfectly executed. There were a lot of wonderful entries, but your card kept drawing me back.
Congrats Diva!!!
