GDT JDE - The last installment


Happy Saturday! took forever for the weekend to get here. :-)  I am sharing with you the final installment of my 5 part series of new release images for Jackson's Digital Stamps.  I can not begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed doing this.  A big THANK YOU to the JDE Team!!

For this card I used "A Quiet Moment" and I can totally relate to this image.  I often seek out those quiet moments that I can hear my own voice and hear answered prayers.  This image also made me immediately think about when we are faced with making a crucial decision and we are so conflicted over what to do.  It is in that moment that you really need peace and quiet so that you can here God's voice. 

Here's my interpretation of the this image entitled "The Traveler"...

A Quiet Moment

When I saw this image it reminded me of someone comptemplating a big decision.  I decided that the young man was trying to decide whether or not to take a trip somewhere.  I know funny how my brain works.  I look at an image and begin to write a story. lol  I guess cards are truly nothing but storyboards anyway (so I am not far off).  I started with 6 x 6 Kraft cardstock and layered paper from a dp 6x6 stack.  I then cut out circles from Spellbinder's to make a globe and mat.  I added a banner that I cut out using my Cricut.  I matted the image on cardstock and cut out my sentiment (verse) using the SU punches.  I finished the card off with a tag and twine.  The scripture on my card is taken from Psalm 91:2 (and it is another one of my favs).

God is your refuge
and your fortress,
in whom you should trust.

"Male" cards are always a challenge for me, but I figure the more I do the better I will become.  Practice...practice...practice. :-)

Well, it has truly been a blast and a blessing to share these awesome images with you!  I hope to be able to do this again real soon.  Maybe I will become a professional Guest!  Make sure that you bop over to the JDE blog and check out the fun challenges and creations from the team.

Thanks for looking and commenting.


Now get to creating...
