BVC08: Life has it’s ups & downs



Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap

a harvest if we do not give up. ~ Galatians 6:9

I’m a little lotta late with Divine Design this month! Opps! Isn’t this card just like life? Full of ups and downs – this scripture has been on my mind for a while – not because I think I’m weary from doing good, but just as an encouragement to keep trucking, keep my eye on the intended harvest. Then I got one of those chain emails, you know the ones that come from a trusted friend, the kind you know you are supposed to read just by virtue of the sender? The message: ‘keep on’ – as mom’s we are building something beautiful in the lives of our children, even though we can’t measure the progress each and every day. “Keep on….”

You can see more beautiful scripture inspiration as part of the Divine Design challenge this month by stopping by to see Angel, Jami, Nancy and Taylor (did you see that my Western Hello card from this weekend was chosen by Taylor in her cupcake challenge? I’ll be the Featured Sampler this coming Friday – hope my Sweet Impressions arrive in time! I’m so excited! Thank you, Taylor!)

If you haven’t yet joined us for Divine Design, you can read about how it all started HERE. Join anytime, no back tracking required, just an desire to grow in your walk with the Lord. To get details on how to participate and share at Splitcoaststampers, which I highly encourage, click HERE. We all start somewhere and none of us ever reaches a place where we can just say, ‘done that’.  Start your engine or keep on trucking, those are the options, my friend.

Have a wonderful day!

  2. Awesome card and thoughts. Gotta go check divine design out….

  3. Awesome verse – and adorable way to highlight it Lori. I think I get a little caught up in elegance, and forget that a little light-heartedness in my BVC08 project designs is also good! Thanks for the reminder – and you aren’t as late as me – three months posted in one day! LOL

    Here’s mine:



    THANKS for starting this challenge Lori. Participating has really enhanced my faith walk this year. I look forward to finishing out the year with everyone!
    Love & friendship, Jules

  4. Wow, we certainly were on the same wavelength when that email arrived, eh? This is adorable, Lori!

  5. This is so cute, and I love the images and scripture!!

  6. I almost called you when I didn’t see your BVC post yet yesterday. Your project is delightful and a great scripture! Hope all is well!

  7. Love your playful take on this – very cute!
