Thank you

I'd like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all of you who have taken part in sending young Elizabeth a card of encouragement. I have to share what I've been able to learn from this experience.
In planning this card I looked up the meaning for Elizabeth, a name found in the Bible only twice. It's meaning is "God's promise", and as Psalm 145:13 says, "The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made." We don't always know the reasons for which children suffer, or why innocent lives have to endure pain or discomfort, but I can attest to the faithfulness of God in the midst of all our troubles. To those of you who were touched by this little girl's circumstance, I ask that you pray for her family, and if I'm fortunate enough to find out any good news, I promise to share it. May God bless you all!-Raquel

  1. That is crazy! I made her a Hello Kitty card too, before I saw yours! I guess we know you can't go wrong with Hello Kitty! I'll be sending hers out this week! Just posted it on my blog.

Today I am posting a short tutorial that comes in handy. I cover how to GROUP, ATTACH, ARRANGE and HIDE layers and shapes to maximize the use of your paper!. Using my Cricut Explore Air 2, Design Space and a FREE File: Creative Bug Flowers, I made custom flowers that coordinate perfectly with the papers in my cards.

I hope this is useful to you, and that it answers some questions you may have! Please let me know what other types of tutorials may be helpful to you. I am happy to oblige!


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.
