You Are FEARLESS

When I saw the challenge at www.simonsaysstampandshow.blogspot.com asking us to make a creation using our favourite "word", I thought about my sweet niece, Brittany.  She is about to set off on a missions trip to Nicaragua to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  She doesn't know exactly what lies ahead for her, but she is facing it with a "FEARLESS" attitude - completely trusting God.  So, this card is for her with my "favourite word".  We have nothing to fear when God is on our side.

I made the card based on a wonderful sketch provided by http://www.sweetsketchwednesday.blogspot.com which looks like this, and I knew I could work with it.
So, here is the list of challenges I am linking this card to:

http://www.sweetsketchwednesday.blogspot.com/ - Sweet Sketch #151 - They have the sweetest Design Team who actually stop  by your blog and comment on your entry.  They are involved and encouraging, and I appreciate this SO much.

http://www.citycrafter.blogspot.com/2012/04/city-crafter-challenge-blog-week-106.html - City Crafter Challenge Blog who is asking us to get "A Little Rough Around the Edges", so I added some distress ink, jute and burlap.

http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.com/2012/04/simon-saysanything-goes.html - Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes.  I just LOVE entering their awesome challenges every week.  Since I'm recovering from foot surgery, I'm thinking, "I could win. . . .who knows?  Anything Goes, right?

Those are the amazing challenges I've chosen to enter, and I'm just trusting God to help me make my way to a win this week.  It could happen.  Have faith.

I appreciate each of you for stopping by and leaving a comment.  I always do my best to also visit your blogs.  Since I'm stuck on the couch, your visits mean more than ever.  I do hope you have a blessed day, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this card.

Praising God,
Karen
