It's the Tiny Blessings Maternity Card---See Some Exciting Changes at our MayzyArt Challenge...

Hi, everybody!  These past few days were extra crazy for me and I am so thankful that I have the Lord to help me create when I get so stressed out from the many roles I play in life.  I love Crafting and take away the deadlines on some projects needed to be submitted as a DT, Crafting truly relaxes me.  I love it when I get into every little detail of coloring, cutting, designing and putting things together as I make my cards or crochet a blanket, flowers, making tags or gifts.  It's awesome!  But when things are needed all at the same time, then my happy world turns crazy but then I realize,  I can depend on Jesus to get me through.  I want to tell you that every time I sit at my Craft table to make the cards I showcase here, I ask the Lord to help me select the image to use, the coloring of the images, lay-out and everything that has to do with putting a project together.  If you are blessed with what you see both in my post and projects, it's because I don't craft without my Father's inspiration in my life.  There are times I don't have any clue what to do and if it happened to you, you know that can really be frustrating.  Then, the Spirit of God in my heart would quicken me to pray and I would ask God to help me and lead me to whatever it is He wanted me to create.  As I start gathering my materials, a moment's time, I would have something in mind.  It makes me smile when at the end of every project, I could not figure out how my project turned out great.  And all I can say is, "It is God's work through me."  

For those who have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, God is with you and "IN YOU!"  We have to come to Him everyday for fellowship, whether we are happy or sad, good mood or bad mood.  The reason we were created is to depend on Him for each moments need.  I know we were taught and trained to be independent but independence applied to our relationship with God means "rebellion."  He does not want us to live each day without His guidance.  The truth of the matter is, we need Him whether we admit it or not."  Even the very contents of the air we breathe is regulated by our Creator, in that it contains the exact mixture of gasses that supports our survival.  A little bit more or less of oxygen will harm or kill us.  The very air that touches my face proves that there is a God who cares and keeps everything in order.  Some wanted to see miracles happening before their eyes in order to believe but I tell you, it's those little things we don't pay attention to that makes our life meaningful and if you only stop to glance at each of them, you'll see an impression of a loving and perfect Creator .  I want to share with you the following passages from the Bible declaring the awesomeness of our Creator, the One True God:

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse." (Romans 1:20)

"But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you; (Job 1:27)

"The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands." (Psalm 19:1b)

So, here's a card I want to share with you for the MayzyArt Challenge.  I used "Mama Mina" from MayzyArt Shop and colored her with my ProMarker/Prismacolor/Spectrum Noir markers.  I used a 5.5-inches square Kraft CS for my base card.  My DP's are from DCWV, My Mind's Eye and K& Company which are mostly scraps.  I matted them with coordinating colors of CS, also from my scraps.  It is really good to be able to use these papers as I have way too many of them already.  I die-cut a Large Scallop Nestabilities and adhered a circle that I cut with my MS Small Circle Cutter.  I included a fancy ribbon and adhered one of the crochet flowers that I made (I sell them too, check My Etsy on the side) and used a brad to keep the bow and the flower together.  The wonderful sentiment is a freebie I got from Create with TLC way back and used my Paint Program to change the color on  a couple of words.  I love how it fits my image perfectly.  We all know how a "new baby" in the family is one of God's tiny yet greatest blessings to us!  We are to take care of them and  protect them from any harm, right?!  Anyway,  I adhered some white gems from Imaginisce and stitched all over this project.  What do you think?
