COF- Strength of Heart

September 2018 ~ Hostess: Susan P
scripture: PSALM 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
challenge: Make a card or other item that illustrates that God is the strength of your heart.

  I look to nature and am always amazed at the wonders of God!  The flowers, the trees, the animals and butterflies. We have been bringing in Monarch caterpillars from the garden, and watching them grow and turn into butterflies.  It is amazing to see this green/black/yellow and white caterpillar turn into this majestic butterfly! 
  From a small butterfly to the hear of a man, God is there in everything, if we are open to it and allow it to touch our hearts. 

 The image from Bugaboo is colored with Copics, and trimmed with a Memory Box stitched die. The DP is Jellybean....from the stash, not sure how old but I have had it a while. The sentiment is Create with TLC.

Thanks for stopping by!
