Refuge And Strength Card

God Is Our Refuge And Strength Card

Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a sweet comment on my Frosty-Inspired Real Friends Last Forever
card! I am overwhelmed by the response to my first creation of the New Year!

Are you ready for a touch of Spring?

What Did I Create This Week?

This week, as I sift through my stash and let my imagination run wild, I am drawn to things that signify new life and the promise of spring – even in the dead of winter.

  • Bright colors bursting through the drear of dark winter days.
  • Flowers blooming in the midst of ice-covered fields.
  • Caterpillars transforming into butterflies.
  • And the Word Of God, which stands forever – a lamp, a light, a shield.

What I feel inside bursts forth in this week’s beautiful and inspirational card – Refuge and Strength.

The card incorporates a combination of new (store-brought) and new-to-me (stash) items as well as a few oldies but goodies:

  • Fabric – Michaels/Recollections (New – Love)
  • Scotch Designer Tape (My New Favorite Product!)
  • Chatterbox Happy Day Dimensional Stickers (Die Cut, Glitter / New From Stash)
  • SEI Jocelyn 6 x 6 Paper Pad (New From Stash)
  • Vellum Quote (Old/Scrap From Stash)
  • Cardstock (Old/Stash)

What do you like most about this card?

Now it’s your turn to share your fabulous creations with us! We’d love to see your creations at one of our weekly parties!
