Miss USA

It reads: "Missing you in the good ol' USA"
Please skip this post if you're easily offended at any image of someone's behind. If you're not, then you'll appreciate my humor. I took the liberty to create this all American gal as a commissioned piece for a soldier on behalf of his wife. It all really started as a joke, but my pen wouldn't stop once the idea was in my head. I painted her with watercolors, and what you see is a scanned image, so the colors don't translate very well, but trust me, she's vibrant in her very own way. I may start my own line of patriotic beauties, and hope to generate some interest for these real beauties, so let me know what you think, now that I have 100 followers, maybe someone should walk away with their very own beauty? Leave me a comment and let me know! 
p.s. If you know any soldiers who have tattoos of their Mrs. and would like a rendition of their own, pass along my name would ya? (totally joking)

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.
