Some things to share...

I hope you all are having a fabulous week! Mine has been pretty good. I have a few things I want to share with you today. First of all, let me share a card.

I am part of a Bible study and we have what we call prayer partners. Each person has one person that they pray for that week. Well I decided to make a card to send too, just to remind this person that I am praying for her. :) This card is for this week's Stampin' Sisters in Christchallenge. The scripture was Psalm 19:14 and the challenge was to make a card for someone to let them know you are thinking or praying for them. Here's the card (I have really been in a collage-y mood lately)...


And let me tell you a little secret. This card totally inspired me. It made me dwell on the power of prayer. I wonder why I don't make more "praying for you" cards, rather then "thinking of you"...the first is SO much more powerful. I don't know about you, but I'd rather have someone praying for me then thinking of me...anyways, went off on a tangent. :) But seriously, I need to make more "praying for you" cards because I know so many people who could use just that. I just found out yesterday that one of my online friends is going through chemo. I need to make her one of those cards.

And on to a new topic...

Have you heard of ScrapStreet magazine? It's an ezine. Well a while back, Stacey (wonderfully creative and super sweet!) asked me if I would make a layout for the magazine. I said yes and made this layout, which was in last month's issue...



When I checked out the magazine...I was very impressed with it...it's put together well with great content. It has writing (articles) and not just pictures of layouts. I just was really impressed with it. I have been submitting for calls ever since. :)

Well guess what I discovered this morning!

A layout of mine made the cover!!!


How cool is that! :) I just had to share. I do hope you take the time to check out the whole issue. It's completely free and full of ideas.

Have a fabulous Thursday everyone!
