ODBD Renewing Your Strength...

Hello! I am on Retreat right now in the beautiful valley in Lansing, Iowa at village Creek Bible Camp. If you have a chance and need a retreat they have a FABULOUS staff, wonderful grounds and a perfect time to get away with the LORD... This is actually a Scrapbooking Retreat, but I didnt have any pictures to work on, so I am stamping and RELAXING. This is my time as a mom, wife, home schooler, person... time for me to renew my strength in the LORD.

This card comes at you with a challenge from Our Daily Bread Designs - This week's on assignment challenge SNTODBD5 is to create a card using something NEW. I have incorporated my NEW Origins Basic Grey Paper, Ancestral Jeweled Brads by TPC Studio AND this beautifully drawn Eagle set... I bought over a year ago and have JUST inked it up for the first time!

Another challenge I created this for is the Stampin' Sisters in Christ - The challenge is to create a card that expresses joy or joyfulness and our scripture inspiration is Isaiah 12:6 "Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you." I have listened to praise music all day, praising GOD for His mercy and goodness to me through out my life. What a blessing this is for me to be here enjoying my time in a quiet space, while having the freedom to worship how I choose (stamping and listening to praise music!)



A few more details:
Stamps: On Eagles Wings by Our Daily Bread Designs
Cardstock: Origins Basic Grey DP, Basic Grey, Banana Coordinations, White
Accessories: Copics, Ancestral Pearlized & Jeweled Brads, Nestibilities, Skeleton Leaf, Prima flower, Apple green Smooch, Grey Felt Ribbon


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a blessed day!

That is beautiful! From your card and from what you wrote I felt a sense of peace as though I joined you at that retreat for just a tiny moment. Thank you for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.
