Hello everyone...I'm here to feature my card for our 613 Avenue Create Anything Goes, March Challenge that started last week. I took on the Optional Twist like the other DT's which is to create a "Slider Card." I've had this fun stamps for a while but it's only now, I am able to use them. I love it! I hope you join us and have some fun crafting and creating.
As a believer (Born-again, John 3:3), I have so many things to be grateful about in life not only for the blessings God delivers daily but also for all the promises He revealed to us in His written Word. 2 Peter 1:3-4 tells us, "His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires." In these verses, it is very clear that the message is addressed to a specific group of people---the Body of Christ in whom God bestowed upon His divine power, enabling them to live a godly life (kingdom standards) having been freed from their sinful nature by the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. Jesus Himself is God's promised Savior and the only way human beings can benefit from God's redemptive plan is by placing their "faith" (trusting, believing, accepting, clinging) in all that Jesus accomplished on our behalf; when we make a personal decision to follow (obey) Christ. As we go before the Father in Christ, God sees us "justified" (righteous, no blemish) in His sight. Jesus lives inside a believer's heart and changes us from within as we surrender ourselves wholeheartedly to His process of sanctification (setting apart for God's purpose). Sadly, there's so many people that thought they were living for God by following religions and traditions of man yet oblivious about God's move in this world today. That's because they didn't take the time to get to know the One True God as well as to study and obey His Word. Therefore, they act so blindly---often carried away by their emotions and experiences, perverting God's Word. Driven by fear, they cower on every worldly pressure, dictates and doctrines of man. With no ability to discern right from wrong, they subject themselves and others to the altar of deception, fueled and ruled by fear.
No matter how ugly this world is becoming, everything that is happening today is already written in the Scripture. As
a child of God, it's apparent that we will be facing great challenges
and persecutions to continue being Salt and Light of this world. God is the Only One who knows what's ahead of us
but I know that in the nick of time, before all hell breaks loose, He
will snatch us away from this world where we will be with Christ forever. But for those left behind, God's wrath (unlike no other) awaits those who hated and rejected Christ---along with their supporters. So when my focus is on God's promises in His Word---FEAR DISAPPEARS AND FAITH ARISES! Matthew 24:35 says , "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away." What a great assurance for all of us that believe.
For this Card, I used an image from Art Impressions Clear Stamps that I colored using my Prismacolor markers and some paper-piecing. The sentiments are also from the same set. The base is white CS, cut and scored to make a 4 x 5.5 inches slider card (excluding the pull tab on top). The DP's are from Recollections (used to paper-piece), the heart gem from Imaginisce and I ran it through my sewing machine for some stitching. If you want to see where I got the design, this VIDEO from Jennifer McGuire and I used my Paper Cutter as I don't have the template she used.
