Same but Different

It all started with making my card for this week's SALT challenge...The theme was taken form Psalm 46:1 "Be still and know that I am God". Lythan writes in her blurb 'I need to know that I am not on my own in all of this - that I can rest in God and he will give me strength. I wish I could follow Desmond Tutu's advice “I am far too busy to pray for less than two hours a day” I certainly need this time to reflect and create and be still with God'. I found this verse that I had stamped form my sister in lawscollection and used it to make this card.

I love the colours from these K&Co papers (the name escapes me...) and while I had the bits and pieces out I went on to make this birthday card. I was showing a friend the other day how to do heat embossing, it reminded me of how I used to almost , always stamp and heat emboss! As I still have lots of powders I decided to add it to this card. (although it isn't very clear from the photo....)
I love the way you can start with some co-ordinating papers, and then use the scraps to make such different cards with the same 'feel'. Trying to pick up my old habbit of using scraps while I have them out on the table, rather than to keep saving them, only just to pile up!
