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)

Yikes! First Post!

After playing around with the layout of this blog for several weeks, I've finally decided to take the plunge and publish a post.  You have to start somewhere...RIGHT!  So even though I've a lot to learn about blogging, and this blog is not fully developed, here we go!

Inspirational Nugget: This is the day the Lord has made so let us rejoice and be glad in it...and He has given us another day to enjoy.  Because I am here writing this post and you are here to read it, I am assuming that the end of the world did not come as predicted.  Man is fallible, but God's word is infallible.  According to Mark 13:31 the earth and sky will  be destroyed...but not yet.  As we read further, "No one knows when that day or time will be, not the angels in heaven, not even the Son.  Only the Father knows."  There's a lesson to be learned here and Mark says it better than I could, "Be careful!  Always be ready, because you do not know when that time will be."  (Mark 13:33)   We look forward to the return of Jesus, but until that time, I pray you live each day for Him!

Creative Nugget: Today's featured stamper at Splitcoaststampers is Carly, AKA PaperInBloom.  What a fabulous CAS gallery she has.  I chose to case her Puppy Friend card.  I kept the same basic layout on her card, but tilted the image panel, used the Swiss Dots embossing folder instead of stamping polka-dots on the background, and added an additional scalloped layer.  The image is colored with Copic Markers and there's a little dab of Glossy Accents on Cocoa's eyes.
Cocoa and I want to thank you for peeking in.  Have a wonderful week!
