Which Hope we have as an Anchor of the Soul


Greetings blog friends, I've been reading the Bible about the return of Jesus for His Saints and this verse from Hebrews is of great encouragement to me. What great blessings we have when we follow Christ. This verse assures us of God’s infallible promise in Christ. We can hope in Him without reservation because He is always faithful. For those who have fled to Christ for a refuge in the midst of this world’s turmoil can have a mighty indwelling strength and strong encouragement to grasp and hold fast the hope appointed for us in Him.


Todays card was inspired by some Stampin' Up paper I recently purchased named, "Island Indigo". I had the background paper that matched and thought brown would be a nice accent color. I made pictures with and without the Magnolia image of Edwin hanging on an anchor colored with Copic markers.


I started with a 6"x 6" square card.  It has Spellbinders Marvelous Squares in brown and Labels twenty four in "Island Indigo" (the white one I hand cut and distressed so you couldn’t tell if it wasn't cut straight). I used Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles to cut out the verse and added Fleur de Lis Motifs as accents around the verse and the flower in brown and white paper.    The blue polka dot flower was from Recollections.  Under the flower I used one of my favorite elements, cheese cloth.  You'll also see  a white Spellbinders Die D-Lites Fantastic Flourish 2, brown tulle, and some ribbon.   I made my first blog entry of this card (without Edwin) today over at Word Art Wednesday for challenge #96. I hope it will be inspiring to others.


If you have any questions about the card, feel free to leave me a comment and I'll get back to you.  I appreciate any input about my blog and how I might be able to encourage you in your paper craft projects.

Until next time……have a good and Godly day, for of what lasting value is a good day if it isn’t also a Godly day.

TGIF.....Today GOD is first.

SUPPLIES I USED
Stamps: Magnolia Stamp of Edwin
Accessories: Spellbinders: Radiant Rectangles, Fleur de Lis Motifs, and  D-Lites Fantastic Flourish Two
