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)

Hope in the Storm

Hello sweet friends…it's been a while since my last post!  The business of the Easter season, a Paper Craft Festival, work, and my sister's wedding took precidence for a while!  LOL!  

The rainy season and April showers are upon us, but the storms of life do not need to bring discouragement…we know the One who is able to carry us through the storm!  The Ways to Use It Challenge on Splitcoaststampers was perfect for the rainy day we'll be having today…AND for playing with several new die sets from the Our Daily Bread Designs April Release.

Creative Nugget:  A Beautiful Border cut from Smokey Shadow card stock separates the panels of Pebbles DP which were stitched to a Smokey Shadow and DP mat and attached to a Neenah Solar Crest card base.  The gorgeous new Layered Lacey Square Dies were used to frame the sentiment from the Shower of Blessings stamp set.  Love the new Umbrellas Die which was paper pieced with different papers from the Pebbles paper pad. The clouds and raindrops were cut with the new Clouds & Raindrops Dies.  A few raindrops were scattered on the background and several others were covered with Glossy Accents to make them look wet.  The handle of the umbrella was also given a coat of Glossy Accents.  A little bow made with metallic thread was added to the handle of the umbrella to finish the card which will be sent to a friend from church recovering from surgery.

The products from the Our Daily Bread Designs Store used to make this card  can be seen below along with links to each item:

This card will be entered in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!  Keep dry and have a wonderful day!
