The Digi Bells GDT Call

Hello Lovelies ♥ I want to tell you today how much you are loved! Sometimes we go through life feeling worthless and alone :( I could tell you lots and lots of stories about my own life struggles, but most importantly is to tell you the truth of what I know. God LOVES you ♥ He really and truly does. No matter what you or I have done, His grace is available to cover those mistakes if we will only receive it from Him :) Now that's good news!!!

You are beautiful... Let that sink in! We are created in God's image - and He doesn't make junk!!! Do you have something that you are not happy about your body? I have had to come to terms with having no breasts. Lots of people have other body parts they are missing. Does this define who we are? Absolutely not! I am a child of God who is dearly loved...and so are you :)

Are you struggling with depression? Nothing is too difficult for God's Healing Love to bring restoration. Don't let the stigma of taking medication stop you from getting help. I happily take my meds every day and am much better for it! I encourage you to take the necessary steps to bring healing and relief to your weary body and mind :)

Although the above message is probably not for most of you, I know that it is for some of you. Please know that I've been there. I've found deep healing (physically, emotionally, spiritually) in Jesus Christ ♥ So can you :)

So... my card today is two-fold. I pray that it brings much JOY to your heart and a smile to your face!!! The sentiment is especially for you... Sending You Sunshine!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girl - Blue and White (mostly...)
Color Me Creative - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Bingo (Flowers, pearls, sentiment)
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon
C.R.A.F.T. - For the Girls
A.R.T. - Anything Goes

I've created this card with The Digi Bells GDT Call in mind. They've asked for a card with the theme of Summer. I ADORE Elisabeth Bell's images

I've used Li'l Lilian with her li'l bare feet :) She's in the process of painting a beautiful Summer garden scene!

She's colored with copics: Skin - E25 11 01 000; Hair - YR24 Y26 23 E50; Pink - R89 85 83 81 RV00; Blue - B39 16 02 01 00 0000; Paints - RV06 04; YR07 04; Y15 11; B39 28; W1; E30 for shading palette; Tape/paper - C9 7 1 0. A touch of Stickles here and there as well as Glossy Accents on the paint and her eyes.

Lotsa layers! The main image is die cut and embossed with Spellbinders Tear Drop Circles (largest size). The next layers are: Grand Circles, Doily from Silhouette Online Store, next largest size Grand Circles and another Doily .25" larger than the first.

A simple one layer panel from Teresa Collins Sweet Afternoon 6x6 Designer Pad provides a nice soft background. I finally pulled out a few of my Wild Orchid roses (LOVE these!) which continues the garden theme Li'l Lilian is painting. I know, use your imagination lol!

I still love my Paper Pens...especially this Rose color (pink pearls in the corners). I just think they are soooo pretty! :)

Thank you for taking some of your precious time to visit! I appreciate it with all my heart ♥.

My Saturated Canary Giveaway can be found HERE.

Have a wonderful day!

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
