"Wait For The Lord Cards" First Blog Hop


The past year the Lord has opened doors for me that I could never imagine. I've always known that I was supposed to help others with their health through essential oils, herbs, and vitamins, however, I now know that I am equipped to lead others to Christ. After being re-baptized last year, my life started changing.....the Lord has blessed me with several opportunities to do what I love, which is stamping, while lifting up and encouraging others at the same time. When Kelley from Our Daily Bread Designs invited me to be on the DT, I was totally floored....months later another surprise from Cindy at Christian Paper Crafts.....now I am totally blessed to be a part of something huge..."Wait For The Lord Cards"! Chelsea Cook, whose love for Jesus is such an inspiration for me, founded "Wait For The Lord Wednesday", a weekly card give-away to someone in need. This wonderful endeavor which Chelsea started has turned into quite a ministry which I am certain will continue to grow each week. There is a now a team of Christian ladies who are helping in this ministry. If you would like to donate cards (or stamps) to fill the prayer requests received, please contact Chelsea HERE.

Now, on to the BLOG HOP!!! If you have hopped here from "Wait For The Lord Cards", you are in the right place! If you are here by chance, please start HERE at the beginning to hear all of the beautiful details from Chelsea.
Kelley from Our Daily Bread Designs has sponsored our first Blog Hop! Not only will you have a chance to win a card from each blog to be sent wherever you wish, but there will be one random winner, from all blog comments, who will choose ANY one set from Our Daily Bread Designs! Just leave a comment on each blog by 11:59 CST October 7; each winner will be announced on Thursday morning, October 8.

Your next stop will be with HEATHER. I pray that this blog hop will be a blessing to you! (In case there are any missing links, please go to Wait For The Lord Cards for the complete hop list.)

In the making of this card, I have used several challenges from "here and there":
Splitcoast: CAS35 Decorative Pillows and TLC241 Faux Suede Technique
Pile It On: Use any 3D item, plus combine at least one other challenge
Stamps and Smiles: Color Challenge and Sketch Challenge
Stamping Sisters In Christ: "Earth Rejoicing"

Before I go, I would like to mention one thing:
