Creative Fingers challenge – Buttons

This week’s challenge is sponsored by:

The chalenge is to use buttons or any round embellishment.  I have used a digi called Robot Chip, which is also available in a coloured version.  I have followed a sketch (see below).

I have coloured the robot using Promarkers in Grey Green, Tea Green and the Blender pen, It has come out looking like steel I think.

Fight off the lies

Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.

Psalm 27:3

My family has been under attack lately, and it is so hard to love your enemy when they are hurting the ones you love the most.  People who should know much better are behaving disgracefully.

Anyway, I have I found this website to help guide me:

how to control your emotions {25 Scriptures to Help Fight off the Lies}

and it encouraged me to have a play with some digikits in Serif.  The background is from Heaven’s Delights by Scrapper’s Delights and the butterflies and foliage is froma a DaisyTrail free kit called Moonlit Forest.  The text is from the best selling book ever.

In this family…

He who brings trouble on his family will inherit only wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.

Proverbs 11:29

Several years ago I visited someone who had a picture with these words in their home.  I always wanted one for my own family and when I recently saw these words on Pinterest, I made our own picture.

The poster was created in Serif Craft Artist and I used a digikit from Scrapper’s Delights to create the background.  I used the transparency tool for the first time(!) to fade the rainbow out near the bottom.  The faux stitching is part of the digikit too.

Creative Fingers Challenge – Fairytale

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

2Timothy 1:7

Today’s card is made for Creative Fingers Fairytale challenge.  I took my inspiration for this card from a Disney storybook that I had as a child.  At the end of Sleeping Beauty, the fairy godmothers were arguing over the colour of Briar Rose’s wedding dress.  One wanted it pink and another blue.  They each used magic when the other wasn’t looking to change it.  So here she is, with her dress magically changing – do you see the sparkles of magic dust?  Yes, I have regressed to 6 years old…sigh…

The lettering is from a Forever friends range at DoCrafts and the papers were free with a magazine.
