What a Friend!

I love it when things just *come together* (are you singin' Beatles/John Lennon right now? LOL)! That is what happened while I was making this card!

I love music, so anytime I see music paper that I like, I buy it and stash it for future use. When Korin invited me to design using Melody of Love from Sweet 'n Sassy's January release, I knew there were plenty of designer paper choices already available to go with it. When I got ready to stamp, I just went to the file and pulled the one that best matched the other designer print I wanted to use. Love these vintage, golden colors!

As I was poised to cut, I looked down at the papers and stamps in my hand...a beautiful bird on the vintage print, the notes to What a Friend We Have in Jesus, and the sentiment, "Sing unto the Lord, all the earth!" I couldn't have chosen it better if I had done it deliberately and with much forethought. It was as if God had placed these particular design elements lovingly into my hands. I love those little "God Things" when they happen, and if you watch for them, you'll notice that they actually happen quite frequently! I do believe that God must smile down on us as we are happily creative, in His image.

Hope you're having a blessed day! My friend Latisha and I are enjoying our last day in California before making our way back home tomorrow, exhausted and happy after a week at CHA! Can't wait to share all the excitement with you, so I hope you'll come back soon!


  1. Awesome card, Deb! I'm glad you are having a wonderful time in California. Kind of weird - for about the past week, "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" has been going through my head - honest!!

  2. Gorgeous, Deb! Love everything about it!

  3. Hello, Deb! I am so glad I got to meet you at CHA. I love your work and can't wait to follow you and your creations. I am praying for you regarding the Spellbinders DT. Inky hugs!
