Be Still...

Hello!
Ewww....deary, rainy, and gloomy here today.
No better weather though - I locked myself in my girl cave this morning, and played with pretty papers, stamps, inks, etc....   Here is one card I made in 7 minutes!


This is a Close To My Heart Stamp.  My friend, Regina Hardy is a CTMH demonstrator, just in case you decide you want to do some shopping! I felt this would work nicely for church occasions.

Hope you are having a good week, so far!

I'm off to earn my keep now, lol...

Hugs & Blessings,
Patti J.

OH!  I almost forgot - am going to actually enter a challenge this week with this card!

Word Art Wednesday's challenge was Anything Goes - this fits!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

How pretty and I know how you did it!!! I am loving this technique - I made a couple of cards this weekend using the technique. Love the sentiment too.

OMGoodness! LOVE that stamp! Can you have her get in touch with me? I'd love to purchase one of those! Your card is beautiful!!! I needed to see that today -- a girlfriend passed away this morning from cancer. You helped me!

Just wonderful, Patti. I love this verse, because it reminds me that in the hustle and bustle of life, we do need to slow down long enough to remember that He is our Almighty God, and that He is always in control. Thanks so much for sharing with us. What a blessing to have you join us in our challenge this week, and PLEASE do come by again soon. I'm so glad you could fellowship with us this week.
Blessings & Hugs,
Karen

Love the sponged background on this so awesome verse. This clean & simple card had a very big impact due to the verse contact, and the very pretty font used for it. My CTMH person retired so I may give a shoutout to your friend. I need to check on the Amuse dies too. TFS & visiting today. Hugs
