Thanks: Lamentations 3:22 -23

Hello again, it is Sunday and I am so glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!


This week the Lovely Linda is our hostess and the verse she chose is Lam 3:22 -23.

"The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning."

Is this not the most amazing promise ever?! A love and mercy that never ends, no matter what we do, no matter what we face He is there. There are times in our lives when we have to climb a mountain, that mountain could be in the form of many things and is different for everyone. Right now our "mountain" is cancer. How incredibly wonderful to know that He climbs that mountain with us. 

This week my card did not come together easily. I am not even sure if I like it. I got my new stamps from TCM and really wanted to make a card to thank our many friends for their prayers and this stamp set is perfect! I am just not sure if I like the colors I chose. Anyway - I added a Magnolia stamp and gave her a cross to hold. I used the crimper (rarely used but had to have) on the main card. 

This week we were challenged to dig deep into our craft cupboards and use something from my stash that I 'just had to have' cause I would use it everyday....but have forgotten about...! That would be my crimper. I have several of them. For this card I used the swirly one. I think I had only used it once before.

Our sponsor this week is Clear Dollar Stamps with a $15 gift card.

I think your card is so pretty, Miesje, the colors really bring out the sweetness of the Tilda image, and I love the cross charm she is holding!! We have been through the trial of cancer in our family also...and I am glad you are feeling his arms around you as you go through new challenges. I will pray also!!

This card is so adorable.... and touching too! What a nice way to say thanks for praying. I don't have anything like that so I may need to look into this stamp :) I'm so thankful God's mercies are new every morning--I rely on that to get me through! Don't we all?! You're in our prayers often Miesje--for your whole family. Hope this week is full of blessings!

What a great card. I should have thought about my crimper. Although I wouldn't have been able to use it. My daughter "lent" it to a friend and I haven't seen it in months. :(
I hope you are having a fantastic week.
