Create In Me

"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me."
    -Psalm 51:10
I will admit that I have made a lot of really big mistakes in my life.  I think that's one of the reasons why I love this Bible verse so much.  It reminds me that I don't have to live in the sins of my past, and that I don't have to continue making the same mistakes over and over again.  God doesn't hold my past against me.  Whew!!!  That's a huge relief.
Ever since I've made some really awesome new friends - Ginny, Patti and Lisa - from my church - I almost feel like I'm starting over fresh.  They encourage me to do what's right, and they are so much fun!  They're the ones who got me into scrapbooking or card-making, and they are those Proverbs 17:17 kind of friends who I know will always be there for me.
I am going to enter this Bible verse card in some challenges - Here.......
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Animal Antics (I used three butterflies) - Closes September 11
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Stamping All-Stars - My "ALL STAR" stamps are my scripture stamps.  They are the ones I seem to pull out again and again.  LOVE THEM!  P.S.  I also love Simon Says Stamp!!! - Closes September 7

V's Sweet Ideas Challenge Blog - #15 - Washi Tape - I used a bright green washi tape to match my pattern paper (Well, it sorta matches...LOL)
Word Art Wednesdays - #96 - Anything Goes Challenge, Closes September 10
I'm still looking for more challenges where I can share my cards.  If you know of any that would be a good fit for this card, please let me know.  I need to find some more places where I can enter.
I appreciate anyone who actually stops by my blog.  If you want to follow my blog, I will happily follow yours too.  You can see I don't have many "followers" yet so I appreciate any comments or followers I can get.  I want to meet more people and learn about more challenges, so feel free to leave me any constructive criticism you want.  My good friend from church is still helping me A LOT with my blog and stuff, and I'm super grateful for that.  That's just another blessing from God!
