Though there may be few exceptions to the saying that "parents wants what is best for their children," it cannot be denied that we would do everything (humanly possible) to support our children to reach their full potential. That's because we love them. But for parents who truly honor and follow God (Born-again, John 3:3), supporting our kids does not only include taking care of their physical, emotional and social needs. More than anything, it is crucial that we provide them with a solid spiritual foundation. Proverbs 22:6 clearly tells us, "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it." The most important truth we can share and teach our children has everything to do with JESUS. His death on the Cross, His burial and resurrection that freed everyone who humbled themselves before Him and by faith accepted His gift of salvation. That everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved." Philippians 4:8-9 wants us to focus on this as well, "Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
For these Cards, I used two sets of flower die cuts from Sizzix and inked them with Distress Inks. The first card below included a sentiment from a Gina K. Designs (Challenge sponsor) and Hero Arts collaboration stamp set called "Friendship Blooms" while the second card featured our Scripture Word Art. The base is white card stock, cut and scored to an A2 size. I also added some Washi tape from Paper Studio, nail head gems from Imaginisce and ran it through my sewing machine for added dimension. I saw this type of lay-out/design from a Paper crafting magazine and decided to try it. I also made envelopes for these cards using coordinating card stocks. I love it!
This Card is entered into the following Challenges:
Make sure you join us at WAW Challenge. You can use the free Word Art in your creation and link it to our Challenge but is not a
requirement. As long as it's family-friendly, uplifting and
inspirational, you can enter several times in two weeks. A great prize awaits our winner from our wonderful sponsor---Gina K. Designs ($25 GC).
So excited to see what you come up with. Anyway, lead many to the Truth of God's Word. True Christians are what's lightning up this darkened world. Stand firm for Jesus!
