And what does the Lord require of you but to do justly, and to love kindness
and mercy, and to humble yourself and walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)

Everything New

Hope everyone is having a great beginning of a new week!  So far this week has been filled with new things.  My birthday was Monday, so I received some new pretties.  Yesterday I began a new part-time job...and I used some new things to make a new card!

Spiritual Nugget: "Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature;  the old things passed away;  behold, new things have come."  (2 Corinthians 5:17)  I'm so thankful the Lord's blessings are new every morning! 

Creative Nugget:  This past Sunday, Sue (AKA bensarmom), was the featured stamper at Splitcoaststampers.  What a HUGE gallery to choose from!  As soon as I saw this  puppy get well card, I got my inspiration and knew what I would do!  I wanted to use my new Cheery Lynn doily die, some new Bo Bunny DP, and this new Christmas Puppy stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  And this was the result!  The puppy image was colored with copic markers.  Sparkle and dimension was added with Glossy Accents, Stickles, a jelly roll pen, and a Spica glitter pen.  The image was mounted on an English tea party doily die cut from DP.  All layers were mounted on a Cherry Cobbler card base.  Every time I work with this image, I'm hopeful that a new puppy will show up in my Christmas stocking this year!

As you go through your week, you may be surprised by all the new blessings you encounter!  Thanks for stopping by!
