Hello Friends!!  

Today I am popping in to share a card I created for the Shining the Light challenge at ODBD as well as one I created for a craft fair...

This week's challenge is to be inspired by the verse:
To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under Heaven.  Ecclesiastes 3:1

I just loved coloring this Holly Wreath and now it has a matching die too!! It looks so elegant on top of the Doily. The sentiment uses the Christmas Pennant Row and the Pennant Row die.   The border at the bottom as well as the bows are created with the Pennant Swag die.  

My paper is from a new pad that I recently received called Authentique Believe.

The verse above is one of my favorites although no one wants to go through the seasons of pain and sorrow.  What a comfort to know that in any season, that God is with us!!

I will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5
This verse is written with many meanings, such as being content, practicing hospitality, and keeping pure, this short but powerful promise assures the believer that God is sufficient for all our needs. What a gift!!

 I hope you have enjoyed my take on the inspiration.  Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy my creation!! For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters: Cheryl Scrivens, DJ Rants, Diana Nyugen, Robin Clendenning, Linda Carson, and Elizabeth Whisson.
