Guy Card

I make a lot of masculine cards. we have a lot of men at church that I do birthdays for plus several other lists, cards for troops and Chemo Angels and I have lots of male relatives! I don't make anything cute or cartoony for anyone over the age of 10!

I do do both "religious" in nature and non "religious" cards.  I get quite a few thanks from the men in my life, they like to tell me the card was really manly and then I get a bicep shot or something, it is pretty funny.  Especially on Sunday mornings in Church!

Any way here is a nice manly card, great for occasion sand thinking of you!

Here is the transparent verse:
This is one of my Digi's

Next building the card:
a wood plank background freebie from farfarhill.blogspot.com


In an effort to save ink I cut a whole in the base


This came from Tumbler:
I inserted my verse directly on the image. I tried printing out on a separate sheet and distressing, 
but it did not look right at all!

And here is a simple card
I mounted this on a 90# ecru base


These are all down loadable and re-sizeable
Hope you can use this!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Bucket List




I have a serious post today, It was  a serious though that I woke up with. I hope it is one you will consider and reflect on.

Recently on Facebook I read two posts both by friends ( real friends - people that I have a real relationship with - not "friends" I have logged into a box)  The first one was " 15 things people wished they had spent more time doing before they died.  Now that seems a little fishy because in order for it to be accurate, the reporter would have to have been having conversations with the Dead.

The Second post was some of my other friends talking about what was on their "Bucket Lists"

Now I want to tell you, I love life, I have a totally awesome marriage, great family that I enjoy, friends who love me most of the time, fruit and veggies on the table every day- I am thankful.  I am not a stoic who eats cold oatmeal every day and waits for the grimm reaper.  
That being said I want to say this.

With the first posting not one Christian that commented on this mentioned they would like to spend more time in a relationship with the Lord, more time reading the Word of Life, more time spreading the gospel .

And this bucket list thing-  I get it , there are things people want to do and maybe should do them, but not if it means neglecting their soul.   

My point is this the Adversary of our soul would distract us from that which brings life, 

 Relationship with Jesus and The Word of God

It say in Luke: It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God. 

Be Careful of your soul, you are investing in your eternity here and now. 
Don't be distracted by the temporal events and promises of this life -whether it is work or play!
Walk with God and you Life will be blessed.  Know Him and you will have Peace and Joy.

I digitized two scriptures for today for you to use.














You are a light house to those in darkness. Turn up your lamp let the Word light the way!

Home again Word Art Wednesday

We've had a busy weekend, traveling and doing.  One thing about being on the go, It alwyas makes me appreciate my traveling partner even more.  My wonderful husband, he is just the best person to travel with and always appreciates the getting home as much as I do!

Today I have a scripture and a digital image for you.  I've been spending the last few hours working with a program called Gimp - It is a free program similar to photoshop. I am also working with PSE , with both of these products there is a considerable learning curve. I am finding that the Gimp 2.8 version is a very different creature from the gimp 2.2 version that I had sometime ago.  The 2.2 made me want to toss my pc on the floor and stomp on it.  With 2.8 I am finding the text to be MUCH easier to create my digi's.

If you are interested in taking a look at it you can go here: Gimp Shop   If you decide to download it take you time and read through the set up process and make sure you decline all the extra junk they want to send with it - like tool bars and other programs.  If you do that you won't have a problem.


Here is my verse for you today:

This was one of the early verses of my my bible reading and it really spoke to me about true beauty.  True beauty is the reflection of the love of God in our lives. There is only one way we can reflect His beauty, we must first spend time looking at and being with Him.  The works of our hands translate inner beauty, stability and peace. This beauty is not admired from a distance, but  blesses others where ever it goes.  Physical beauty can be diminished by  a sudden tragedy or the simple course of time.  But the Beauty which this verse describes is one of that will go with us into eternity.








My Sample card :

I am also entering this card in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge - It is anything goes this week, highlighting Our Daily Bread Designs!


I hope you will be able to use this verse and image, it is a wonderful reminder to us of what is real and eternal.

Thank you for stopping by!

Mightier than the Sea

I was reading this Morning in Psalm 93,  how God is mightier than the waves of the sea.   The entire psalm was so beautiful.  I thought I'd share this with you.  I created this to cut and paste into my journaling bible, you can do that to or make a book mark!
I hope you like this and I hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks for stopping by,
