DT Feature Saturday: Marji

Happy Saturday!
It is raining here so that our beautiful spring flowers have plenty to drink.
It has been raining a few days now. 
I imagine they are no longer thirsty and it can stop raining soon...
Yes. That sounds pretty good to me :)

Speaking of beautiful flowers, check out this card that Marji created for us today.
Doesn't it just sing SPRING! So soft, romantic, and lovely .... 


*Here is an excerpt from Marji's original blog post*


Fresh Brewed Designs Digital Stamp:

Isn't Cierra beautiful?  I love her hair and her sweet necklace the most.
I colored her using colored pencils, she was cut out using the print and cut feature with my Cameo.  I'm so spoiled, I rarely fussy cut anything these days.

Pretty right?  I'm still not great with coloring hair but I'm working on it.
Love the garden of roses.


*Your coloring is soft and pretty, Marji,
and those roses... What's not to love! They are gorgeous!*


Thank you all for stopping by. I do hope you enjoy your day.

Heather & Marji

FBD Sponsored Challenge: SSW2

Good Morning!
I am here to let you know that we are sponsoring Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 this week.
Sally and Linda are both a part of this team at SSW and being the team we are here at FBD, we love to support each other and do all I can to show appreciation to one another.
  
Sally's computer has been on the fritz, so she had a blast from the past 
sketch to share for this weeks challenge. 


Here is a card I created yesterday as a stress reliever following 
this lovely sketch:

Kari Jobe - Forever (Live)





 Please, I beg you, watch this video in full. If this were the last post I ever shared that you would read, I will be satisfied. This is the message I want to share with you. This is the love I want to leave with you. This is the reason we are here.  To share about Him. To know Him. To worship Him. God is love. Jesus is alive. Praise His name forever!

In the middle of this video a man steps out to read.
I sit and listen to the words this man pours out of his soul as he reads his poem.
So touching and so moving and so true.
I am not good with words or  writing at all.
That was not my talent.
I can draw digis and things and have a lot of fun doing so. I know I am not
some magnificent artist, but God has given me the talent for a reason and I have met
so many wonderful people because of it.
In listening to the words of this poem I could not help but think of how he captured
everything I think when I stop and try to draw something to honor Him. Jesus Christ.
I will get out a pencil and paper and sit there. I will be in awe of His love, His grace,
His mercy, His majesty, His sacrifice ...
That, I can not capture on paper. I become overcome. Overwhelmed.
Oh to know Him and to love Him. Oh to be loved by Him!
So, no, I can not capture all of that in song, in art, in words...
but you can find it in a relationship with Him,
If you need prayer or want to learn how you can become saved and have a relationship with Christ, email me.
I will be happy to talk with you and pray for you!

Heather
