Double Duty: KittyBee Aloha Friday & Carriers of Faith Blog Hop

It's FRIDAY!  YAY!!!  And it's an exciting Friday too.  My post is doing double duty today - not only is it "Aloha Friday Challenge" at KittyBee Designs, but it's a blog hop for Carriers of Faith.  Who would have thought I could make one card to fit both.

The theme for our Aloha Friday challenge is "Scraps - use 3 or more scraps" and our sponsor is Doodle Garden.  I used an image called "Moon Baby".  My three scraps are the 2 papers and then also the ribbon piece.  And I must confess that even the card base was a scrap piece I had laying around.  Love using those scraps!  Be sure to come over and play with us!


Now for the Carriers of Faith blog hop, you should have arrived here from Jeanette's blog (I love her blog!).  Now if you've been following the hop you will know that there should be a letter at Jeanette's blog.....Jeanette is busy right now and has not had a chance to post for the blog hop - but her letter is "M".   Kelly is our hostess for May and this was her challenge:



Scripture: "Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story —  those he redeemed from the hand of the foe..." ~ Psalm 107:2

This month, create a card/project/scrapbook page/picture based on the scripture above and what the meaning you pull from that is. Tell us your story! What speaks to your heart? What gifts do you have that you give to others as part of a fellowship - do you read, pray, write, create, walk, sing? There are so many parts in each of us ~ what part of your story are you sharing with others? As an added bonus but not required!! Please use the color GREEN {my VERY favorite color!}somewhere on your card to represent newness, growth, the blossoming of nature around us and the blooming friendships we have!

So my story.....well, I'm not really sure what would be.  As to what speaks to my heart - many things do....and as for gifts - well honestly, I don't think I have many at all.  But I do love people and I do love the Lord.  One of the things that I do to share my heart is to make cards for our local Pregnancy Center.  They are Pro-Life organization and do all they can to help families, new moms - young and old, new dads, and of course - those little lives.  I don't think I do enough - but cards are what I can give and for now that has to be enough.

My card does represent newness and growth because of course - it's a baby!  And while it's not a "Kelly Green" - pun intended  - I did use a teal green.

One thing that we, as cardmakers, can do to share our hearts and our faith is to send the cards we make....do you?  I certainly do!

Now - if you've been following the blog hop, you know that I'm supposed to give you a letter...and that letter is "E".  Be sure to follow the blog through and collect all the letters for a special word - you could be the winner of a very special prize!!!

Thanks for spending some time with me today....you're next stop will be April....ENJOY!!!!!

Beautiful card Zella - and wonderful words - God does not require that which we cannot give, rather a willing heart to share what he has provided.
Blessings
