A late Christmas posting!

Hi to all!! I hope each one of my friends is doing good, and that you had a wonderful Christmas day yesterday. I meant to post on Christmas eve, but I didn't succeed!!! Sigh!!

As you may have noticed, I had to take a little break from cardmaking. I have changed Home, and started a new work, which is quite demanding, is lovely and I have to give it most of my time. But I am happy the Lord is giving me this occasion of serving Him, so even though I don't find the time to create often, but I'm happy I am doing something for Him to loves me! :) But I have truly missed cardmaking,Blogging and hearing from each of you!!

Well, I have three cards to show you today, cards I have done for occasions that required a card with a message.. including a Christmas card. I had in mind to do a lot of Christmas cards, but well.. plans...!!!

I'm lucky to have managed to send the most important cards some weeks ago, and thank God that had arrived in time :)

On these cards I have used Our Daily Bread Designs Stamps. I hope you like them. I coloured each one of them with Copics, and Glitter Glue is a must on my cards it seems :)

Oh.. I just realised that the star charm that is dangling from behind the ribbon bow has stuck with the double sided tape when I put it up for the photo! lol

Challenges I will enter this card into:
Copic Creations: Sparkle (all three cards are coloured in Copics and have added sparkle)
Simon Says: Anything Goes
Creative Belli: Christmas
A Spoon full of Sugar: Christmas card

Have a wonderful Christmas Season my friends. I hope that I will be back more often now. IF I don't manage to be back before the New Year.. Let me send you Cyber Hugs my friends, and thank you for being a God-diven gift to me during this past year. I am truly Blessed with having you part of my lovely life! God bless you and your families!

I carried you on Eagle's Wings

Thank you for swinging by my Blog today, and thank you for blessing me with your presence.

I have not written on this Blog in a while. The reason is that I had to move in another Home, and every change brings a lot of challenges in anyone's life.

Mine was not any different. I felt challenged to leave my "safe place" (because every place we live in for quite some time feels safe to each of us). So moving to another Community means learning to share your life with new people, learning to accept them, love them, forgive them and share your joys and sorrows.
It also means you have to adapt yourself and your character to new sorroundings, a new environment, a new timetable. So you see, we ARE challenged by changes.
But thank God for His everlasting promises. What would I do without Him in my life? This is the Promise I am trying to keep in my mind in this challenging moment:

How can I refuse to trust a Loving God, that carries me on Eagle's Wings, and Bring me to Himself? So therefore, as He promised to renew my Strength (my inner strength at this particular time, my Faith and Trust in Him), I let go of my Ego and my "safe places" and walk in Faith wherever He shows me to go.

Papers I used on this card: Capella paper, Basic Grey
Tools: Nellie Snellen Frames Dies, MS Doily Lace punch
Black Soot Distress ink to distress flowers, Glimmer mists on flowers
Embellishments from stash

I will enter this card for Creative Inspirations Challenge. They have a sketch as a challenge, and when I saw it I had just finished the card. Curiously enough I realized it looked like my card, and I had not followed any sketch to build it. They only have the centre shape different from mine (they used a circle). So there it goes! :)

I hope you like my creation. I used the lovely ODBD set On Eagles' Wings to create it. I just love the few sets I have from ODB!

Have a wonderful rest of the week, and remember to let God renew your Strength everyday! He will lift you up to Him in Spirit and in Truth. Trust my word, but better.. TRUST HIS!
