3 Challenges in 1!

Happy Friday all! I'm so happy to be at the end of the week. I'm SO sleeping in tomorrow...lol! Today I'm posting a card for a couple of different challenges...read on to find out more...

I'm so excited about today's card. First of all it came together very quickly and best of all...I love it! So, the first challenge is the challenge I'm doing with my friend, Tana. It is the Clearing the Clutter Challenge (we've decided that we will be doing this challenge just once a month on the first Friday). This cutie card was made with an old SU! scrapbook kit Friends and Flowers. All of the elements on this card except the pearls, twine, and the digi image are from the kit. It is so nice to have things be all matchy and ready to go!

The second challenge this is for is the Doodle Pantry challenge for this week. All you have to do for this challenge is to use a Doodle Pantry image! I love that because I got to choose one digi (up to $3) for free when I was in the top three for their last challenge. I chose the Everyday Birdies for my winnings and used a cutie bird AND sentiment from the set. Super cute, huh?

And finally, this card is made with the last Sketches by Carly sketch for 2010. Whew! that was a lot of challenges...for me at least. I hope that you like this card as much as I do. I can't wait to send it out to its recipient!

So...yesterday my niece texted me a scripture verse that she had run across when she was reading the Bible. It is: "Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle." Psalm 144:1. As you may know my son hurt a couple of his fingers at work about a month and a half ago and this verse is absolutely perfect! See? Even when we can't see it God has everything under control for us!

Well, that is it for today! Have a wonderful Friday!

Cute card Lorie. Love the tag element with this adorable image!

Kristine said...

Awww, this is sooo TWEET Lorie!! LOVE IT! Love that big tag on there especially--so cool looking and your pretty pearls on the side and of COURSE... the birdie! I love birds in general, but Laurie draws the cutest ones doesn't she? Very fun card. Ooo, and you used Carly's sketch too?!! COOL BEANS!!!

That was soo sweet of your niece to text you that verse. God works "ALL THINGS TOGETHER FOR GOOD TO THOSE WHO LOVE HIM"... the funny thing is, WE don't often see what HE's doing or why He's doing it til much later. Glad your son is A-okay.

Just wanted to add also... Thank you for blessing me with your friendship. *Ü* For checkin' up on me when I'm absent for a while... for sending us your favorite game to play with the girls...for your blog visits and comments. Hope you get the rest you need this weekend and are open to all God's wonderful blessings =)
(k, sorry I wrote a book here. Just sharing from the heart)
