I Thank My God

Well, Fellow Crafters, it has been a long time since my last post. I'll just say that life happens, and sometimes we are drawn away from our crafting creativity to things that are more on the front burner. GOD IS GOOD!!!  The last couple of days I have been making cards once again in my craft room.


So, today's card is a very simple one that will fit into a regular A2 envelope; the background paper is black with bright pinks and yellows and greens, so I wanted to draw the eye away from the "darkness" of the image to capitalize on the brighter colors. The flowers are from a discontinued SU die; don't know the name of it. The sentiment is also a retired SU stamp, and is cut out with a Spellbinders Classic Circle die. I rubbed a bit of pink ink around the edges to give it some interest and to pick up the pink in the background flowers. The die-cut flowers and the sentiment are accented with pink half pearls, and a plain ribbon finishes the card.

I am entering this card in the following challenges ending:

Romans 10:9-10  If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.  NLT

Acts 13:38-39  "Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is declared right with God--something the law of Moses could never do."  NLT

A simple prayer for salvation:  O, God! I know that I am a sinner!  I thank You that Jesus Christ, Your holy Son, was born of a virgin, came and lived a sinless life here on earth, and died on the cross as a sinless sacrifice for my sin. He is no longer dead, but rose from the dead and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.  I accept His atonement for every sin I have ever committed, and receive Your salvation. I put all of my trust in Jesus Christ of Nazareth and receive Him as Lord of my life from this moment on. Thank You, Father God, for this grace given to me!

2 Corinthians 5:17  This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!  NLT
