Rebecca Sower had a giveaway this past week and I entered it, along with 154 other huge fans of hers, and I just found out this moring THAT I HAD WON!! The 'prize' is this fabulous autographed art book by Tracie Lyn Huskamp!
I am just chuckling to myself, because (for those who know who Beth Moore is) I attended a simulcast of her conference over this weekend. She spoke on Psalms 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." I have counted 3 desires (that were more noble and spiritual) than this one, that He has given me just over this weekend. Then to wake up to find I had won this book just made me feel like He's delighting in giving me fun and frivolous treats, too!!
Speaking of fun and frivolous....I am going over to Judy's house today...and we're going to paper-craft today. She is so very talented~she has mentored me over the years spiritually and artistically.(I've known her since I was 7 and she was best friends with my mom) .
So I made her a couple of 'fun' gifts to thank her for the frivolous day we're going to have!
I embellished a bottle for her of vintagey images
along with a little ditty...
Covered a matchbox and slipped a little magnet inside. The flower was made by punching out flower shapes from sheet music. I layered three shapes over each other, folding the top two layers of petals to give it dimension.
I stamped the inside of the matchbox for her to discover when she removes the magnet.
Well, just wanted to share the latest....I'm off to Judy's now. Have a fabulous day!!
P.S. Can anyone please tell me how I do 'spell check' on the new blogger format?
