{Glory Art} Scripture Challenge #10 - Still

Hello, my friends!

 Okay, here's my last project share before I leave for my big adventure! :o)

It's another Scripture Challenge Tag!
Now that I'm finally all caught up...I'm going to be behind again! ;o)

Challenge #10 is Still.
I must say that it is one of my favorite words.
Have you ever pondered it? 
Spending time being still is so important for our well-being!
Yet we live in this frantic world where there's no time to be still!

This time of year, my husband and I really enjoy spending time at the river.
We enjoy walking the trail and sitting on a bench to enjoy the view.
It's a beautiful spot to be still.

Have you every tried it? What happens when you're still?
I know that wonderful things happen when I take the time to be still.
Have you ever tried it? Please do!
Many people we see on our river walks are not interested in being still.
How can you be still when you have a cell phone glued to your hand...or your ear? lol 

This image by Sherri Baldy was just right for my tag.
This sweet girl is just sitting and being still.
The Scripture verse I chose for my tag is the first part of Psalm 37:7. It says:

"Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him."

Isn't that beautiful? How easy is that?
Just be STILL...


Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, 
MME Miss Caroline - Dilly Dally, American Crafts;
Spectrum Noir Markers;
Dies: Cheery Lynn - Spring Flower Burst Doily,
Tim Holtz - Alphanumeric Framelits;
Ribbon: Offray.

Deedee's Digis - July Digi of the Month Challenge


Hello, my friends!

Happy Canada Day to all my fellow Canadians! :o)

Today I am sharing my project for Deedee's July Digi of the Month Challenge.
This digi is called "Ice Cream Truck" and you can find it in  Deedee's Shop.

As always, Deedee's digi sets come with precoloured images, or ones you can colour yourself.
 I chose to use the coloured images for my project.
I must say that I'm really enjoying the option!
Plus, these sets are really loaded with multiple images and sentiments!

 I didn't make a card this time.
What I did make is an 8 X 8 cover page for my Summer album.
My husband is a huge fan of ice cream.
During the Summer we often stop by Tim Hortons, 
and then nibble on a cone while walking at the river. 
I enlarged one of the sentiments included in the digi set.
It made the perfect title banner for my page!


Materials Used:
Papers: Recollections - Cardstock, MME - Lime Twist;
 Image: Deedee's Digis - Ice Cream Truck.

Since I created a project using the July digi,
I will receive another free digi set for the August challenge.
I can't wait to see what it is.
You can pop over to Deedee's and join in the fun.


I hope you're all having a wonderful day!
I'll be back in a day or two.
I have one more project to share before I head out on my big adventure! :o)
