Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge

I just love playing along at the Christian challenge blogs - Scrapping Everyday Miracles, Word Art Wednesday and Twist of Faith Cards because I love what they stand for, the messages they bring, and designing with scripture and other sweet sentiments.   I specifically created this card based on the card sketch for the May Challenge at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  The card sketch is simple and sweet, and I really enjoyed creating my card for their challenge.  Not to mention, I absolutely LOVE their sponsor, Blue Moon Scrapbooking and would be SO thrilled to win their prize.   You can read more about this awesome challenge by clicking on the link below:
Scrapping Everyday Miracles - Challenge #20 - May Sketch Inspiration - Use Circles - I used this Verve stamp for my sentiment because it reminds us that God's grace is ALWAYS sufficient (as He has told us in 2 Corinthians 12:9).

I'm also sharing this card in a couple of other Christian challenges this week.  I just LOVE playing along, and although I'm new at this - I'm enjoying it so much, and all the people I've met have been SO sweet.

  8. Pretty bouquet of floral on your card. Thanks for commenting & becoming a follower of my blog. My daughter is the true artist in the family as you can see by the Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow artwork on my blog right sidebar she has created. I'm a new follower of your blog. If you have any questions about anything just ask. I may not know the answer but will help if I can. As far a experience I'm still learning and tend to be a Clean & Simple CAS creator but do step out of my comfort zone and try new things.

  11. Hi Sierra, I just saw your comment, and am happy to follow your blog. I know it is very hard starting out with blogging, just hang in there. I have been doing it for two years and it is a long process to meet people who you can support on their blogs, as they support you. You are doing the right thing reaching out to other bloggers. If you ever have any questions you can email me at and I will help you if I can. I just love your card. The circles add a fun focal point to the center. God bless you.

  12. Oh, I forgot to tell you that I am following you through bloglovin, I will see you next time.

  13. Hi Sierra! I'm so glad that you've shared your beautiful card in our CAS challenge at Twist of Faith.... it's so warm and welcoming... like a big hug! I loved reading your post, and was excited to read that you feel my motivations for starting Twist of Faith... a fun place to share our faith based card creations... I hope we see you often at Twist of Faith!
    hugs and blessings from wintery southern Australia!
