Hebrews 11:1 Faith is the substance of all things hoped for.


  • religion: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny;
  • complete confidence in a person or plan etc;
  • religion: an institution to express belief in a divine power;
  • loyalty or allegiance to a cause or a person;
  • Faith-its a simple word, but a difficult thing to have when you are going through a trial in your life. I know first hand how hard having Faith can sometimes be. Often it is all we can hold on to when times are tough, and we are at out lowest point. It often seems when one big thing goes wrong the rest of our world falls apart with it. The bottom of our bucket just falls out, and there is nothing to hold everything we need to fill it with. But with Faith we keep it all together.

    That all being said I made this card for a friend. I haven’t had as much contact with her as I would like, but I when I heard her mother passed away last week I KNEW I had to get a card made and out the door, so she knew, despite my lack of interaction, that I was thinking and praying for her through this difficult time. I cannot imagine the grief of losing a mother.

    The sentiment is from Everyday Blessings. I inked just the scripture for the front, and stamped the sentiment inside.

    I LOVED this image from Stampavie . This one is  Lily-the Magic Fairy . I just bought several from ATS-HERE! OMG! I think I’m addicted, these images are just TOO cute. I wish I bought more! LOL! Seriously adorable.

    Anyway, this image in particular struck me for this card-to me, she looks like a sad little angel, looking at her ladybug friend for comfort. I used blue for the solemness of the card. I wanted to keep it very soft. I LOVE the labels 1 nestability . I used the inner rim to trace my blue lines, and pierced holes for the “sewing” effect. Looks pretty good I think! LOL!

    I colored her with my Copic markers, and added some white dots to her dress. I had so much fun coloring her. I LOVE her glittered wings.

    I stamped the bkgd using the old Damask bkgd from Stamping up, on glossy white paper. I felt the bkgd pattern was a mimic to the shape of her wings.

    The satin ribbon was a perfect feminine touch, which a stuck a pin in that holds my sentiment.

    I hope this brings her some comfort knowing so many of her friends love her, and are wrapping her up in their prayers, and I hope she keeps the faith as she travels the difficult road of grief from the loss of her mom.

    Well I hope you all hold tight to your families tomorrow, enjoy this time together, and you acknowledge all you have in life to be thankful for.

    More so I hope you don’t wait for a holiday to make those who are important to you know just how much they mean to you. We are never promised tomorrow.

    Happy Thanksgiving (in case I don’t get to post tomorrow!)


    PS I do plan on having a thankfulness post, but need to make sure the things I need to do for the people I AM thankful for, actually get done first! LOL!
