Scrap Suprise!

(using felt swirls from my QK)

(my swing card! sentiment swings- not lob sided!)
Whilst attempting to clear my craft table, I decided to make some cards along the way, using whatever bits and bobs I had on my table! This way you not only use up those tip bits (rather than storing them away for a rainy day...) but you end up putting things together that you may not usually!

Why dont you give it a go?- leave me a comment and let me see what you come up with! You might amaze yourself at the results- I know I was!

And here are some cakes I made for a friends baby shower- all thanks to Ruth for her inspirational use of using punches on coloured rice paper!!!

Hazel's Hope

Hazel set the challenge this week for SALT on the topic of HOPE, here is her blurb "We are living in uncertain times, so it's understandable if folk feel that there is no hope. As Christians, we have hope because of what Jesus did for us at Calvary. This hope isn't an airy-fairy 'maybe' for the future, but it is a certainty that we can claim now. In our church we have recently been privileged to hear a series of sermons on hope, which is what prompted me to choose this topic now. On Sunday we sang the song which is on my LO, which I feel sums up our Christian hope: Our confidence is in the Lord The source of our salvation Rest is found in Him alone The Author of creation We will not fear the evil day Because we have a refuge In every circumstance we say Our hope is built on Jesus The verse from Hebrews 6:19 says it much better than I could: 'We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.' We pray that you may have the joy of experiencing this hope for yourself. We would love you to show us your interpretations of this theme. "

What a joy we know as Christians to have hope in the Lord knowing that our faith is secure. Praise him!

Well I was having one of those making sessions, when you start off not with much of an idea, then an idea which changes into something quite differet from your original intention, but hey ho, as long as it works in the end right? All part of the creative process! I made that squigley shape myself! Proud as punch :)
