For the 4th Anniversary Release this year, I chose a quote.  This quote is part of the  ODBD Quote Collection 1 stamp sets. One of my favorite inspirational speakers/preachers is Joyce Meyer.   This quote really says it all when it comes to worry.  Worry is a useless action and a waste of time.  This quote reminds me to turn to God at all times and in all things.  Exercising my faith is a more worthy endeavor than senseless worrying.   I combined some older My Mind's Eye dp with some newer patterns.  Sort of mixing it up a bit.  I am also using a new 2012 Spellbinder's!  I also tucked in the background a new 2012 Impressabilities folder by Spellbinders!  Love these!  I thought the new frame looked great with one of my EK Success border punches.  I finished with a few prima flowers, seam binding bow and a few tiny gold pearls.


As always thanks so much for hopping by! 
Next on the hop is Jan Marie Ennenga's Blog!

  129. This is one of those cards that I wonder how to classify. It's not a sympathy card, not an anniversary or birthday card. All I know is it's a very important card that encourages a friend in a time when they need it most. It's the kind of card you least expect, which cheers you up more than flower or any other gift. So beautiful. I really like this one.

  145. Hi Betty!

    Wow! You thought of a wonderful quote! It is so to the point and purposeful! I need to make a banner with it and put it on my "Wall of Inspiration" in my art room as a reminder. I seem to forget until I am in it, and then a friend will remind me! LOL

    Your card is bright and cheerful! I love the combination of papers. The red stands for "Stop" and "pay attention." The green reminds me to "Go" and take this action. I always love flowers and bows...and yours are no exception!

    He IS Able!
