Trade and Create Swap

Good evening!!! This past month, I had the pleasure of participating in a Trade and Create Swap group. 
I received some awesome crafting supplies from my swap partner Brandi (@the_happy_door) and was required to create one thing with all or some of the supplies. I loved the color combo SOOO much, I created a few things!!! LOL

Starting with this photo frame:
I painted it with the pink Acrylic paint. I was going to try and distress it, but I clearly need more practice! I added ric-rac and some fabric flowers. I used the patterned cardstock as a frame for one of my photos. 
I also covered some chunky clothes pins with the patterned cardstock and made a cute planner clip with one of the rosettes. 

In my Journaling Bible, I used some of the patterned paper at the top as Washi Tape and covered the dress on my Beloved Society girl to match. I used the pink Acrylic paint as the background. I finished it off with a cute rosette paperclip. 
This is in Isaiah 55:9

And here are the supplies she sent. I was stumped on how to use the cute patterned banner, but I'm sure I will find use for that very soon!!

Thanks for stopping by!
Be blessed!!

Handmade Vintage Birthday Card

Good Sunday evening to you. Once again, my mother has celebrated her Birthday, and once again, I have made a handmade Birthday Card for her. She loves the vintage, shabby-chic look, so I always try to make a card accordingly. 

I found this free image on google and it reminded me of my sister in and I, so printed it onto cream colored card stock and went from there. 

I used a Martha Steward lace border punch, some cream lace, a fabric flower, a vintage looking button and some tiny stick on pearls to embellish the card. 

I find make handmade cards to be so relaxing and enjoying. I think I need to make more time to do these. I truly enjoyed making this card for my Mother. 

Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed!

Bible Journaling: "Under His Wings..."

Good Monday morning to you!! Today is a special day for many reasons:
ONE: God has given us a new day of life, and has so much mercy on us. TWO: It's my Hubby's birthday! Another year of life, praise God. And THREE: I am happy to announce I was selected to be a Design Team Member for the lovely FLORA JOY DESIGNS

Leah has the most beautiful images, and they are so versatile. You can use them for Bible Journaling, Planning, Cards, and so much more!! 

I chose to use the FEATHERS collections for my Bible Journaling entry this week:

Psalm 91:4:
"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."
