It's A Sweet Day---Join us for Anything Goes at Mayzy Art!

Hello there, everyone!  I had a busy weekend so, this post is just coming on today.  We have a brand new Anything Goes Challenge at MayzyArt with an optional theme of Animal Print.   So, here's my inspiration card for you.  I used Molly and Booboo image you can find at MayzyArt shop which I colored with my Promarker/Prismacolor/Spectrum Noir markers.  I used a Kraft base card measuring 5.5 inches together with a dark blue and golden yellow CS for matting my panels.  The DP's are from Recollections and DCWV.  I punched the sides of the card to alter the shape using an MS Punch and die-cut the lacy circle with Nestabilities.  I stamped the banners utilizing CDS stamps and cut them out to triangles.  The paw print stamp is from Recollections and the sentiment is from Stampendous.  I added some twine, brads (Recollections), gems (Imaginisce) and stitching all over this card for a complete look.  

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
This is one of those cards that I didn't have a clear idea what to do but God helped me put it altogether.  I love when I create and know that God is with me helping pick colors as He impressed upon my heart how each panels and layers are to be placed.  Many times, we think that we can only call on Him on desperate situations.  When we tried everything and nothing worked.  We sometimes think that God is too busy to be mindful of this little craft of ours.  Yet, "This is what the LORD says: "Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. Where is the house you will build for me? Where will my resting place be?" (Acts 7:49) Just with this verse, we can only imagine how big God truly is.  He created the earth and the fulness thereof.  The Word of God further declares in Luke 12:7, "Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."  This verse tells me how involved God is in my life.  If he knows even the daily count of my hair, this tells us that he is never out of reach.  In fact, when I allowed/accepted Him (Jesus) as my Lord and Savior, He lives inside my heart.  He is closer than a heartbeat.  He is my everything and without Him, I cannot do anything (John 15:5).  The issue with us (created beings) is that we tend to put God's mind to our level of thinking.  Yet God declared in Isaiah 55:8, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways," declares the LORD." Think about it by looking around you, all the things we see and cannot see are testimonies of a great Creator.  Man can only discover what God allows Him to and unless we fully surrender our lives and come to terms with Him, we will not know the great mysteries He has in store for them that love Him.  His Word says in Jeremiah 33:3, "Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."  I've decided to live my life for Him and through Him with every step, big or small.  He has proven His love for me by what He's done at the Cross.  He paid on my behalf the ultimate price (death) for my freedom from the hands of Satan and all his powers and He declared me righteous before His sight, not by any good works that I've done or the lack thereof but solely based on Jesus' sacrifice.  Pretty awesome!  If you have not experienced that kind of love and acceptance, call unto JESUS.  His promises are as true from the beginning of age, in His time, our time and beyond.
