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!

I am totally inspired by your cards. You know I always wondered if you created more than just magnolia, and now I know. I own so many ODBD stamps and love them! Thanks so much for your inspiration again.

Hugs, Sheila

I'd say this is a pretty close match indeed!! Beautiful colours and sentiments, the embellishments are gorgeous as is your punchwork. I certainly hope your move is going smoothly, it does get stressful but something tells me you will be comfortable in your new home in no time :) Thanks for sharing with us at Creative Inspirations!!
