Faith Blog Hop Proverbs 31

    Welcome to another special Faith Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Tree House Studio! If you are following the hop you should have arrived here from Nana's blog .  If you just happen to have fallen here go to the beginning of the hop over at Paper Tree House Studio.
Every month a group of bold women gather to give Glory to God with the talents He has given us in a very loud way... :) Our prayer is that through the projects we have created you Will be able to see Him in all of His Glory! May He touch you today as we look at the theme of the Proverbs 31 woman, and may you find that you are indeed everything He designed you to be.
This is how the hop works:
Below you will find the list of the beautiful and brave women that are ready to show their weaknesses in order that you may see His strength. :) Follow the line-up and please leave some love throughout the way. Allow yourself to cry, laugh, smile, along with any other emotion the Lord may bring your way. You will find that there are many prizes throughout the hop. In order to qualify to receive them you must be a follower of the blog and you must leave a comment. Know that if you are announced as the winner of a prize you are responsible for contacting us in order for us to make the prize go your way.

Sweet Stamper: Stampin' Up Stamp Set

The woman described in Proverbs 31 seems to be perfect! She works hard for her family, keeps up with the house, makes sure that the entire family is fed, is respected by others and her husband, and the list goes on... It can be very overwhelming to try to attain her status- which leaves many of us feeling as though we do not amount to God's standards. If you are anything like me, you too have felt as though there is always something that is just not right in your womanhood. Maybe you are not sweet enough, or neat enough, or submissive enough, or clean enough... Whatever label you do not amount to it can leave you feeling overwhelmed and discouraged.
God did not put this part of Scripture in the Bible so that we would draw away from Him filled with shame due to our incapacity to do what He expects of us. On the contrary, I have become every day more certain that He inspired these words because He wants to show us His Grace. The truth is: we all fall short of the Glory of God and there is not even one that is good amongst us. He KNEW this when He made us and when He decided to save us- and in this He loved us.
The proverbs 31 woman is meant to be a reminder of how much we need Christ! God desires that we would be women like the one portrayed there, and He knew that these areas would be our weaknesses, so He gave us this map of virtues so that we would not conform to the world but allow Him to transform us. The Bible teaches that in our weaknesses He is strong! My prayer is that you would allow the Lord to show you those areas where you indeed fail so that in turn you would learn to be mesmerized by His great strength. You will be doing things you never imagined when you fully rely on Him. In Him you already are the Proverbs 31 Woman you so desire to be. May He show you that truth today as He heals you from all insecurities.

This is a project I started and it is a work in progress, all art is like that you start and it takes time to mold and make it into the perfect peace of ART. Christ is always showing us and molding us to be the perfect Proverbs 31 woman. Just like this project you may think wow its nice the way it is but I know what more I want to add to it to make it even more wonderful. Jesus has given us verses in the bible just like P. 31 to help mold us everyday into a better works of art. Just like I will keep molding this Dress form, God will always be molding you and me.
Enjoy the hope and your next stop is Carrie's Blog.

When I made this Card I wanted not just a happy birthday card or thank you card, I wanted to have something that I could use to share about God's love for us and how he takes our worries away.
This is the card I made for CRICUT360 DT challenge. 
We had to use lime green and put a bug. Also we had to use our cricut, I also used my cuttle bug.
I used Paisley and Winter Woodland Cricut cartridges to make the Frog, Flowers and white background behind frog. Paper used was the Amy Butler paper from K & Company.
Check out the video

Check out the links so you can see Marion's project and watch the videos, maybe you would want to make your own.

From Pictures to Layout

This is just a simple Layout, I think the pictures make the project sometimes and this is one of those times. I found a layout I liked that had less pictures and I added more because I am into showing the pictures in my layouts more then the paper or stickers I always try to make the picture the point. This was one of those amazing moments to save forever.
