Two Card Projects

 The first card I am sharing with you today is a card with a dual purpose.  I have a lovely young lady in my life who is graduating from High School this month so I made her this card.   Congratulations Hannah and best of luck in your Nursing Career!!  The other purpose is a challenge which Ruthie has given us for our Kreations Klub today....to make a project using three items starting with the letter 'B'.  Therefore, this card has 'brown' Bazzill background paper which has been embossed on the Cuttlebug, a 'bow' and three 'brads'.  I stamped the image with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured it with my Copic Markers.  The punches are from Stampin' Up.
The second card I have to share with you is a 5x5 card I made for friends who have been blessed with a new baby girl, Halle Dawn.  She is the cutest little one!!!  This image was coloured with my Copic Markers as well...added a pink, wired ribbon and popped on the sentiment.  Very simple card.  Congratulations Donovan and Carmen.

Mr. & Mrs. Osprey

This is a photo of Mr. & Mrs. Osprey getting their nest ready for little ones.  I don't know if these are the same mating pair who arrive every year, but I like to think so.  This nest is located on a power line in back of Meteghan on Hwy. # 101 in western Nova Scotia.  Welcome back!

HSCRC13 - Hymn # 7, "Trust Him When Thy Wants Are Many"

This is my 6x6 page for the Hymn and Scripture Challenge, Hymn # 7 - "Trust Him  When Thy Wants Are Many".  Check out http://triplethescraps  for the entire devotional for this weeks' challenge.  This Hymn was new to me, however the words truly speak to your heart.  The scripture I chose to reflect this Hymn is Proverbs 3:5 - "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart".  For me this scripture means to trust in the Lord in every minute of every day.
