Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Well, I finally got done with 90% of my DT work for January so I decided to take a break and create something just because I could! ;)  This card is very special to me and will be going to a very special person...I'm just not sure who that person will be.  I like to make cards that are "just because" to keep on hand because I never know when I will be inspired to send one to some special person needing a pick me up.  This is one of those cards.

Here it is~

Details~




For these fabulous challenges~




I've used glitter paper by DCWV, a dry embossing folder by Sizzix, and all other supplies are by Stampin' Up!.

Sometimes I think that a lot of times what people need faith in is themselves.  It is SO important to have faith in our Savior, but if we have faith in Him and in His Atonement, then faith in ourselves is the next logical step.  Because He suffered and died for us, we can repent and live with God again.  We can have the strength to overcome all obstacles and to do anything that we are called to do by God.  On a scale of one to ten, we can ALL be elevens--because Christ makes up all the differences when we allow Him to.  He love you.  He loves me.  He wants ALL to come unto Him and become elevens.  I hope to come closer to being an eleven in 2013.  I hope you will try to as well.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog and check out my card.  I hope that my card and words have inspired you to do something today--whether it's to craft or to tell someone how awesome they are.  Or perhaps to pray to know of YOUR importance in the world.  I hope you come and join in the fun at these fabulous challenges as well!  Happy DOING, friends! :)
