Delight in the Lord

I love to combine challenges, sometimes just to get through the ones I enjoy doing and HATE to miss, other times to give myself guidelines to work with....it is a great feeling to combine 4 challenges....and I have done that here...it is for the 'Ways to Use It'...using Kraft cs on our card, Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - using beads, The Devine Designs - with a Scripture and the final (and my newest find) the 'Flutter by Wednesday' Challenge that I found on Glowbug's Blog (there is a link under BLOGS I FOLLOW)....and I am happy! One of my passions are the Scripture Challenges, my faith is so important to me and I love to be able to share God's Word in this way....this scripture is a favourite....it is often thought that it is saying we need to delight ourselves in God and He will give us whatever we want BUT really it is saying that as we delight in God, those things we desire will be more inline with His desires and He will bring it to pass - two quite different things really!
The gorgeous butterfly was sent to me by the one and only Peggy (aka Marilyn Prestonn) in a RAK that took 4 months to get here, but it well worth every day of waiting - it was like having another Christmas, Peggy had crammed so much into the box....images were tucked away everywhere and there must have been over 20 'post it notes' ...we were spoilt!
Most of my cards consist of RAKS from my SCS friends, they have been so good to be and I love using all of the different pieces in my cards - makes it a combined effort! This card is no exception with the Nestie oval I sponged around, thanks to Melinda80 and added a textured, sponged Kraft strip behind it and layered it with crotched lace. I added various flowers and used half beads in the centre of them, slong with some sponged punched branches, thanks to Lesley aka Marleygo....some more half gems were added to the corner and...the card is finished! I must mention too that the scripture is computer generated!
Thank you for stopping by and for your comments...your support is so appreciated as I find my way in this BLOGGING world!!! God bless you!!
