For those of you close to me you know that my Dad has been diagnosed with a form of carcinoma and the prognosis is not great. It has been devastating to us but we are trying to focus on the time we DO have and hoping he is as tough as we think and can beat or make it much longer than they think. I wanted to make a card to just lift up him and my mom since I feel like I can't be there as much as I want.
I wanted to use a scripture and looking through my scripture stamps I found Isaiah 41:10 which is perfect I think. 
I decided to make it the focus of the card which is perfect for the Our Daily Bread Designs Challenge.
I was going for simple but elegant. I embossed Fine Linen CS with a Damask CB folder. I stamped the scripture on the same cs in Ripe Avacado ink and cut it out with Nestablitites oval and layered it. Behind that I added a punched strip with some ribbon. A bit of bling and there you have it.



  1. Oh this is gorgeous! So sorry about your dad- will be praying!

  4. Tessa, Scripture is always perfect, and the Father has words that bring comfort and peace- no matter the situation. Your dad will be blessed to read these words. Bless your heart. {{{hugs}}}

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
