SOUS Die Cut Challenge: About My Home

Today I am sharing my project I created for this week Die Cut Challenge: Home Sweet Home at Stuck On U Sketches Blog.

This card I created using my Silhouette Cameo and the phrase is from Lori Whitlock design. First I drew a rectangle with size 4.25 inch x 5.5 inch. Then I opened the phrase and resized it to fit inside the rectangle.

I added on the card base from American Crafts card. I used Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue. The finer the tip of the glue pen is the better :)

I finish the card with the Red Enamel Heart from Close To My Heart.

And here’s what I do with the negative cuts:

You still have time to play along with us this week. Please go HERE to link up your project. Have a fun crafting day!

Exotic Flower Mini Wall Decor

We are packing now for our 2 months mission trip to Southeast Asia, to a tropical country where we will meet lots of people, working on some projects with the local missionaris and hoping to enjoy the special creations of God. In one of the small towns we will be visiting, they have lots of exotic flowers!

Today, I would love to share with you a project I made on request of my sweet friend :) She asked me to make her a mini wall decor for her home.

First, prepare a piece of watercolor paper. Cut in square 4 x 4 inch. Use a sturdy flat base to keep the paper flat. Use Blue Painter Tape to keep the paper in place when you work.

Then stamp the Exotic Flower Hostess Reward Stamp using VersaMark ink pad, add Ranger White Fine embossing powder, heat set using Craft Heater.

Using Aqua brush, watercolor using Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads: Lagoon, Juniper and Pear.

Fussy cut and use 3D foam tape for each layer.

For the base I cut 1 piece of Black cardstock and 2 pieces of White cardstock for sturdiness. Finish it with a Silver Glitter Gem.

All done :) I would suggest to use the Scotch wall picture that has double sided adhesive to put it on the wall.

I am thinking to make one for me when we come back from the trip :)

Thanks for visiting today!

HelloMornings Fruitful Affliction Week 2 Recap

This week I learned that God is everything!

We can read all about Him in the Bible.

We can taste His goodness in our lives every single moment.

We can see His works in and through our lives when the moment we walk in His ways and in obedience to Jesus’ lordship.

The Bible tells us all about Him, who He is.

God is love.

God is our faith perfector.

God is the hope.

God is everything that we need.

May you find Him when you seek Him.

Blessings to you all on this weekend and coming week!

Happy Mother’s Day

For all special moms on this special day: “Happy Mother’s Day” You are amazing, blessed and no one is like you!

My mom is a very special woman. She was not from a Christian family. When I was still at college, she came to know Christ and she follows Him until now. Her devotion to God and family bless me so much. Her love for God and her family teach me to love like her. She never give up on us. She always encourage me and my sisters.

She is always there when we need her. She id my mom.

I am forever thankful for this calling in my life as a mom and a wife. Today I am thankful for every gift He has given in my life: salvation through Christ Jesus, my husband, 2 daugthers, parents, in-laws, relatives and friends. my headt full of thanksgiving & joy for what God has done in my life and through my life. It is all Him!

My daughter gave me a very special gift she made for me at school:

What else do I want for gift? Nothing becuase I have all what I need in my life: to live my given life with thanksgiving. To live my given life with my husband and my daughters to serve Him and obey Him. To live my given life for His glory and His kingdom through the work of my hands and wherever He plant us.

Yes, I have all what I need in Christ Jesus, my Savior and Lord.
