"Scripture Card"

Good Wednesday to all of you.
We've made it once more to the middle of another week.  So many great things have happened as well as some bad.  We will not dwell on the bad but are thankful for each precious moment.
Today, I'm sharing a card directed towards my bible journaling book.  I'm using the scripture coming from Matthew 7:7.   If you want God to do something for you...ask Him....seek Him...and pray to Him...and  you may get your answer.
I used a die from Spellbinder (Grate Effect) for a stencil and some Distress Oxide ink on a piece of DP that already had a glossy swirl on it.
I used the Heartfelt Creation poinsettia stamp for flowers.  The butterfly came from a sticker as well as the Scripture.  Robin egg liquid pearls were added to each corner.
Hope you enjoy the view today:

Sending you a hug and LOVE,

"Dropping In To Say HELLO"

Happy Tuesday to my friends, followers, visitors and viewers.
I'm just dropping in to say "hello" today with a very simple made card.  I've only used cardstock, a cut out from Cricut design space and a clothespin.
First, I have been playing around with my Cricut Explore, the Design Space and using different fonts.
I love the way Tim Holtz created dies using words with parts of the letters cut out.  I was trying not to buy the die because I would be limited to what I could put on a card.  By experimenting I found out I could do what he did with the Cricut Explore.

Note **this is the TH die I'm referring to.
To achieve a similar look, I used  the Cricut Explore and the Design Space (I could get to my fonts quicker than  using the Cricut Expression and the font from a desired cartridge).  I achieve the desired result with the word "hello" ...Give it a try.

 Second, I basically used paper from a paper pad and a Tattered Lace border die. The "hello" tag could easily be placed behind the image by adhering only three sides.  I love the foil look of some of the pages from this pad.
 This will be entered in the challenge over at http://www.wordartwednesday.blogspot.com
