I'm a guest designer today at For Fun Challenges!
Kathy contacted me and asked me if I'd like to be their guest and you know I said yes! The theme for the challenge is Fully Relying On God, I knew I had a couple or more really cute frog digital stamps in my files.
The image I decided on is Crissy Armstrong's Mort The Frog, he's available for sale at Squigglefly. I colored Mort with Copic markersYG01, YG03, YG23, YG63, W1. My card layout is a sketch from Totally Gorjuss back in October 2011. My papers are a mixture of scraps that were beside my paper trimmer. I did use a Cuttlebug embossing folder and thought it would be fun to randomly color some of the dots to mimic Mort's skin, I did that with YG03. The F.R.O.G. sentiment is computer generated. I forgot to take a photo of the inside of my card, it's plain and white but says, "Fully Relying On God".
I made my card with specific friends in mind. Our family has been praying for our friends Steve & Dottie, Dottie and I found out about the same time our husbands had cancer. We're "online friends" through Operation Write Home so we've e mailed back and forth and gotten acquainted.
Our family has been following her husband Steve's progress through his cancer. I am truly inspired by their faith and dedication to each other. They have been fully relying on God for their strength to get through this time and our family has been keeping up with them through a site called Caring Bridge and keeping them in daily prayer. I enjoyed making my card today with Steve and Dottie on my mind, I'll write a note of encouragement inside and mail it off soon.
This challenge theme was also inspiring to me, we all have a story and we all have our struggles and issues in life. Sometimes we find ourselves wounded and crawling away from God, when actually we should be running to Him or crawling to Him if that's all we're capable of at the time. What a great reminder that we all need to be Fully Relying On God.
