Captured Fairy Received!

Ok, so last month I joined some new friends in a challenge and swap to make a captured fairy over at Alilscrapofheaven. My partner was Laura, and yesterday I received my fairy in the mail!! I was so excited to receive it and to my surprise, Laura included a generous rak as well. I am humbled at the kindness shared by all the people I've met through this blogging and crafting community, and I send a huge THANK YOU to Laura for the sweet gesture. Here are the pics...and LAura, you are clever!! You found out I love Hello Kitty!!-Awesome :) Thanks for putting a smile on my face!!
I wish you could see the pretty embossing Laura did on this card! It also has pretty blue glitter.

Are you kidding?!! You speak my Love language, & I love you back!

Laura added pretty pinks, blues, purples, and my fav. thing: butterflies!!

She also put pretty flowers on the tag, and fun bling everywhere.

This is the glittery back with butterflies!

Another butterfly on a charm :)

I tried to get a close-up of the pretty fairy.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
