God's Promises

 Welcome to our Fun Stampers Journey "April Showers" Blog Hop! I'm so happy you're hoppin' along! If you arrived here from Ruth Cooper's blog, you're on the right track. If not, that's ok too! Just continue the hop and you'll come full circle!

After the flood hundreds of years ago, God promised Noah that He would never again destroy the whole earth with a flood.  To seal this promise, God created the rainbow to put in the sky for us to see after a rain shower.  Every time I see a rainbow, I'm reminded of the many promises such a loving God has for me.  I may not like all the promises (I believe that he also promises to reprimand us when we do not follow the directions he has given), but there are many many more promises of joy and blessings that happen when we do follow the directions he's given us in the Bible (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth)

Here's the card that I I created for this hop:

I must confess that this is not original to me.  I saw it while spending a little time on pinterest.  Here's the link to the original.  As soon as I saw this, I knew that it would be very easy to recreate with the dies from Fun Stamper's Journey.  

First I used the Journey Rectangles Die cut and the Journey Circles die cut, and then selected threads from my stash of DMC floss.  I decided to stitch in every other hole so that the white would show.  

Here's a picture of the back.  When I got to the end of where I wanted one color to show, I simply tied it to the next color.

Thanks for hopping to my blog. Please head over to Sharon Venclauskas' blog to see what he/she has to share.

WCC! (A term I "invented" while visiting a different Hop not too long ago - means "Way Cool Card!" ...) Unfortunately, my floss stash isn't so well put together to "copy" your idea, but it is fabulous! I wonder how some of the "tie dye" skeins would work on something similar ... Great use of the dies with the punctured edge ... takes all the guesswork out of figuring out where to run the thread ... hmmmm ... brain running away from me go play with the3 idea and maybe bring something back I can use ... LOL
