Handmade Cards are always Special

Good evening!!! Today, is my Mom's birthday. I won't say how old she is...but she does look very well for her age. So we will just focus on how YOUNG she looks!!! :)

My mother loves vintage, shabby and chic. So, I made this card for her this year. 

Every year I try to make her a Handmade Card, and she proudly displays them on her walls! 

Happy Birthday MOM!!! I love you!

Bible Journaling: Colossians 3:14

Happy Monday to you!!

This is now Week 7 over at Documented Faith. The focus word for February is LOVE. 

                                                      Page Details at the bottom.

This week's verse is in 

Colossians 3:14

"Love is more important than anything else. It is what ties everything completely together."

I am using a Journaling Bible in the ESV version, so my verse reads like this:

"And above all these, put on Love which binds everything together in perfect harmony."

When we have God's love, we do things in Love.For example; showing compassion towards others, spreading kindness, practicing humility, demonstrating gentleness, and having patience. All of these are easy to do when you have love for others. 

For this page, I used a little bit of everything. Various Stickers, some by Tim Holtz, some acrylic paint, stickers, Bo-Bunny stamps, epherma, and an arrow Paperclip I found at Michael's and Washi Tape for Target's $1 spot. 

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderfully blessed Valentine's Day tomorrow. I challenge you to spread some LOVE!!!

Bible Journaling: 1 John 4:7-8

Good Wednesday to you!!!

Today I'm sharing a page from my ESV Crossway Jornaling Bible.
The verse this week at Documented Faith is

1 John 4:7-8

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

I think it's very appropriate for this month's holiday too!  
Valentine's Day that is!! 

Here it is: 
On the Recollections card, I wrote a list of the people I love....too many to list, but I wrote down my closest ones. :)

 Materials used: Polka dotted vellum and heart patterned paper (Michael's), Heart Washi Tape (Target $1 Spot), Recollections Library Card pocket/card (Michael's) kraft letter stickers (Hobby Lobby) Word Stickers (Tim Holtz) and Letter stickers (white letter on black) (Joann's Fabric Store), Plaid Ribbon (my sister had tied this around a gift) "Love Always" stamp (Peachy Cheap Deals)

Honestly,I hadn't worked in my Bible in months. I was in this "slump". Last weekend,
I atteneded a Women's Church Conference with a friend of mine. I had such an wonderful time, my soul was renewed.
On Friday, after receiving the email with this week's  Bible verse I was excited to read God's word and get some journaling done. 

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a blessed Wednesday!!!
