CAS Series: Yappy Birthday Card---Join our First Anything Goes Challenge this New Year, 2021 at 613 Avenue Create!

HAPPY AND BLESSED NEW YEAR, 2021, Crafty Peeps!  A couple of days ago, we started our January Anything Goes Challenge at 613 Avenue Create with no optional theme.  I would like to show you a very simple Birthday card that I  made for our Challenge below.

In case you don't realize it yet, we are living in what the Bible describe as "perilous times."  Lies are rampant and many people are so deceived that there's no ounce of truth residing in their conscience.  They do not only conspire to do evil things but they encourage everyone to go along, support and force everyone to bow down to their demonic agenda.  I understand, it's very easy to lose hope.  If my hope comes from the world, I would be consumed by sadness at what the darkened hearts of man have done to this great country.  For their hearts are evil and evil continually.  

But NO, MY HOPE IS IN THE LORD!  I will stand for the LORD and HIS WORD even if I have to go against every human opposition (even my own) for GOD'S TRUTH to once again shine in this nation.  For all ungodliness and oppression shall cease for every believer (Born-again, John 3:3) whose faith is firmly planted in CHRIST when He calls us home or when He comes back for His Bride (the Church) while we are still alive.  He will gather us all in the air (Rapture) and we will live in His presence forever more.  But the divine judgment of God (His wrath) shall pour out to them who are left behind---the wicked, haters of God, mockers of Jesus Christ---everyone who conspired with Satan.  It can happen any day but until then, we listen to the voice of the Lord (His Word) as we carry our His plans to fight for what is right and true without compromise and reservations.  In times of trials and uncertainties, we need to trust and cling to the Lord even more.  He's already paid the price for our freedom not only out from this corrupt world but for all eternity!  Sharing this wonderful promise of the Lord to us.  Be encouraged!

"Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,” says the Lord Almighty. “Not a root or a branch will be left to them. But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty. “Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel. “See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction.” (Malachi 4:1-6)

For this Card. I used an image I got from Mama Elephant and I colored it with my ProMarkers.  The base is a white CS, cut and scored to make it an A2 size.  The birthday sentiment comes with the dog image although the the main and envelope sentiments are from Stampendous. Just a simple card to start the year.



This Card is entered into the following Challenges: 

2 Crafty Critter---ATG with Critter
