Picture Perfect Day Card-Join Us for a Color Challenge at Jackson's Digital Expressions...

Good day, Everyone!  Today is such a special day.  Why?  Cause IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!  I am having fun and celebrating it with my family and it's going to be wonderful.  The Bible declares in Psalm 118:24:  "This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."  I thank the Lord Jesus for giving me a chance to know His eternal love that is freely given to those who put their trust in Him!  I've gone through many trials in life but the Lord has preserved me and saw me through even during the times when I was depending on everything else but Him.  I give Him all the glory for His perfect love...

So, I am very glad to present this Card to y'all today.  I was invited to be a DT for another group of wonderful Crafters. Jackson's Digital Expressions have a theme oriented Challenges every week and today, we are tackling a Color Challenge Combo which are pink, blue and yellow.  Now, I am exempted from this theme right now because I am a newbie...LOL  This is my intro project at Jackson's Digital Expressions and the wonderful image I used is created by resident artist, Robert Jackson. Isn't she pretty?  Like her, I'm feeling fabulous today and ready to take on the camera..LOL  I colored her with my Promarker/Prismacolor markers, layered several colors of the borders I cut from MS Border Punch, embossed the base panel with Paper Studio embossing folder, added a doily, ribbon and several colors of Recollection flowers with glitters (Stickles) on them.  I added some leaves I cut with MS Punch.  The background sentiment was from Studio G that I stamped several times to make a border and the main sentiment was a freebie from TLC.  All of this held together by a Kraft colored, 5.5" square CS, from Paper Studio.  Like most of my creations, I stitched this card inside and out.  So, what do you think?  Is she ready for this special day?  This Card is entered into the following Challenges:

1.    Make it Monday featuring "Anything Goes"
2.    Paper Playtime Weekly featuring "Punches + Sentiment"
3.    Southern Girls featuring "Bling Bling"
4.    NMWC featuring "Die-Cuts/Punches"
5.    That Craft Place featuring "Bling It On"
6.    Pin and Tack featuring "Anything Goes"
7.    Digi Designs featuring "Use More than 1 Die Cut Or Punch"
8.    Lia Stampz featuring "Any 3 of Something"  (I have 3 gems)
9.    Inspire Me Fridays featuring "Anything Goes"




This is it for me, for the meantime.  If you find any inspiration in my blog, please let me know by leaving a comment here.  I love, love, love hearing from you.  Now, if you don't want to miss any post on projects I make, I encourage you to become a follower.  My blog needs a lot of "lovin'" from you, wonderful Crafters out there.  Jesus is my inspiration when I make something and most of the projects you see here were put together without any planning or a clear lay-out in mind.  I always surprise myself after I get done because I know He's been my Source. Without Him, I cannot do anything.  (John 15:5).  Let your art be a blessing to others!
