Dude! Birthday Card

I'm really enjoying the Dude cart I just got and decided to use my favorite cut from it. This card will be for my older brother who is a former Marine and definitely has all the attitude to back up the boots. I really love my brothers and it's not really tradition in my family to make a big deal of birthdays, but I hope to change that. We don't live near each other, but I think he might enjoy the card. I hope you do too. I designed it on my Gypsy, used he Cuttlebug for the dry embossing, distressed the papers and used Tim Holts Crushed Olive and Vintage photo inks to give it a more masculine look. I also added "screw" brads and twine. The sentiment is hand-written and I hope to have it available in the future as a stamp...Enjoy!

I used green because it's my favorite color. All elements of the card are from Dude!

Inside is also embossed, and layered.

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.
