Word Art Wednesday #17

 

Hi everyone and thanks for visiting me and for taking part in our Word Art Wednesday Scripture challenge.  My month as guest designer here has been absolutely amazing though I confess I’ve felt a bit “stretched” because I’m also going to school, fully involved with my church (http://osoyooschurch.ca) - helping host Sunday fellowship luncheons and hosting children’s church… honestly, sometimes at the very same time.  I look at that as kind of when Mom was cooking a meal but helping me with homework.  Sometimes us women have invisible extra sets of arms to go with those eyes in the backs of our heads right?  We do what needs to be done and somehow the Lord enables us.  I look back and go “HOW did I do that??? “  Well, the Lord is how! 

I also, to top it all off, am helping open a new store in our town.  It is called Indie Lulu Living and its going to be amaaaazing, thats all that I can say.  Here are some snippets you might see when you come on Saturday for our opening:

Ahhh - I’m going to leave the rest to tempt you.  You’ll just have to come see - or wait until I post more photos after our opening. 

So, onto this week’s card.  We were given Psalm 9:1-2 and it is such an encouraging Psalm because it causes me to know that EVERY good thing comes from the Lord. 

I will not be able to add much here as it’s late - I just returned from a birthday party and I still have the store opening  with many requests on my time.  Can you please pray for me and for my friend’s who have worked very hard to put this together?  Thanks so much, I am so grateful I can count on your prayers.

Believe it or not, this “designer paper” is really a wallpaper sample.  I bought some sheets of it while shopping with my sister in law Judy when she came to visit.  I split it with her.  I think it makes a fabulous masculine looking card and its nicely textured.  The stamp in the corner of the word art is a Studio G.

Thank you to Word Art Wednesday for asking me to be Guest Designer for February, I really appreciated the time with you “behind the scenes”  You are all a talented and lovely bunch.
