Faith is needed to be pleasant to God.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please HIM
for he that cometh to God must believe that he is the rewarder of them
that diligently seek HIM.

What is Faith?

Hebrews 11:1 Now Faith is the substance of the things hoped for,
the evidence of the things not seen.
To have faith is to believe in the good things that are yet to come.
To have faith in GOD is to believe in his promises.
To believe GOD will always keep his words.
You can believe that the Lord is doing the things he said he would do.
GOD is just and truthful, to have faith in the Lord is to trust him.
The Lord knows whats best for us before we  do
he knows what paths lay ahead and wants to prepare us.
God doesn't always take us away from our obstacles but he will always take us through
and with Him we will always be victorious.

My pastor has preached a lot about faith and she taught me that
Hebrews 11 contained all the great men of faith
Those great men we are to be mimicked and we are also to learn from their mistakes.

My faith isn't strong enough to move mountains
although i wish it was.
it's not that i don't believe God can do all things it's more of
a would God do this just because I ask for no reason?
I know from experience that God listens when I call on HIM he answers.
Luke 4: 12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
So why would I risk  calling on the Lord to test to power of my faith?
I believe in my Lords words and in his promises but I don't think  I am foolish enough to tempt HIM.

Faith is a marvelous gift
to believe and to know that God is always there and would never
forsake me or abandon me is such a relief.
Although i know my faith might be lacking some  I ask you Oh Lord
 to make  me victorious and to Grow in my walk with you I ask you OH Lord to forgive my stuburness and my selfish actions and to help me give you the personal time of day you deserve.
Thank you Jesus.

calori counting

Ok so i decided to start a new diet based on counting my calories.
and I am shocked that with all the good food i ate and bought that this thing is telling me i am not doing things right.
whats in green is  good amount whats in red is to much.
now let me press on that this is 1 meal with drinks + my cappucino from befor  dinner.
the meal was   1 thin slice chicken breast sandwich slices of chedar cheese with 1 tbs of creamy caesar dressing with a small side  of scallop potatoes and a small portion of corn.
2 portions of motts garden vegetable cocktail drink.

and that amounts to almost a full days worth of calories ???
i am doing something wrong i think.

New strange evening!!! Jan 31st COF post

Hi Ladies I had a strange evening last night.
 Ok this isn't in my normal behavior so bare with me.I have heard of a rumor going on around the world of strange noises in the sky. The noises some described them as the sound of Trumpets.So it made my mind wonder a micro second If God sounded the trumpets how come i didnt hear them? So i got dressed went out and Prayed about it.Shortly after what ill refer to as a unknown object in the sky made its appearance.The object in question wasn't one i have seen before so I pulled out my camera and took a video. Now the video is pretty bad quality and I am not good a filming objects that i cant see in my screen very well but I posted it anyway. NOW don't think for 1 minute that the ufo is a blessing from GOD. From what I gathered from it that ufo represents the greatest deception to be. Those Who believe the sounds are the trumpet of God are falling for the great trap laid by satan.Those who believe those sounds are the trumpets, will also fall for the the false messiah.

its been a very weird night dont know what that thing is
but from what God has put into my heart It will be part
of how satan will fool people into thinking the messiah has returned
i dont spend my time looking at the sky but it did intrigue me
that if the trumpets were being sounded. I want to hear them to LOL
so i went out prepared
with my cam encase I could hear the so called trumpets
but ended up witnessing something far more bizarre.
I posted a video on facebook.
I speak french sorry a passer by and i  were looking  at it.

with all that said and done here's my card!!

Walmart trip

So my mother came and picked me up.
We went to walmart and stood in the crafting aisles for over an hour.
I found a few things I wanted and other things.
I could have used but didn't need at the moment.
This is what I got!

Aileenes clear glue.
3 small 85 ml spray bottles **I make my own supplies**
a new pack of butterfly stickers

Might not seem like much but theses 3 things
needed to be added to my supplies :P

so now that I posted my Blogging of the day
I'll get back to my butterfly making <3
Blessings in Jesus name all.

Going to walmart

I am going to walmart in an hr or two.
I don't have anything to buy in mind ATM but I am sure ill find something.
I have 359 sheets of designer paper I almost don't use cause I am afraid of wasting it.
I am guess I am gona have to get brave and start cutting it up.
Now that I think of it I could use some new cardstock.
and mabey some storage containers...
I guess I'll find out when I get there.

Tips and Tricks # 1

I am gona share with guys a very good money saver trick as well as a quick substitute.
Todays trick and tip will be on butterflies.
I love butterflies but since I am new to what I call manual art
I don't always have the supplies or the money
or worst yet my local craft store doesn't have what I need.

I went to my local craft supply store
and found these really pretty sparkly embossed butterfly stickers.
I Payed 2.06$  but that wasn't all I got theses stickers come on a clear packaging sheet.

Take a look at what I found !!
There in the clearing theres the butterfly
etched into the plastic.
Thats right under all these stickers are the etched
copies now i figured i could do 2 things with them
1- I can cut them out and have clear butterflies to use
as some sort of embellishment.
2- With a little work and time I have a whole new set of butterfly stencils.

My new stencil and my Creation in progress.

 Tip #2  sticker backed foam critters.
At your local dollar store *cheaper*
or your craft supply stores.

Look for foam critters,shapes ect...

Here's the few tricks I found using theses.
1-you can trace them and then cut them and then doctorate them.
2-use them as they are and make them even more pretty *they aren't very pretty*
3- paint,color or ink them to stamp them and then cut them out.
4- this is the moment I have been waiting to share.
The ones with sticker backs already have a punched out layer of paper
you can use that layer as punched out image and decorate it as you would
any punched out image.

Now I am not the best manual artist so bare with me.
But for you who are more experience and advance and talented
just think of what you could do if i was able to make theses?

I hope this tip was helpful God Bless.

Valentines/ Feb Bible verse Card

I couldn’t wait any longer I had to post my Card.
I based it on my 2nd valentine’s day layout.
I didn’t use any designer paper with this one.
I Made the butterflies using the the paper on the back of foam butterfly stickers.
I couldn’t  find a punch at our crafts store ….
I hand painted them added glitter and gems.
The flowers I used are  from a pack of 250 pc from the dollar store
There is so much we can do with those I Can’t wait to show you what new styles i came up with.
I think overall  It turned out pretty nice
and very semilar to my layout sketch.
I left out the Hearts :P
I prefer to glorify God not a man made festivity.

Valentines day digital layouts

Design By Faith

My first post on my new blog.
Welcome to my artistic design blog this one is dedicated
to lift up the Lord.
For a few weeks now i have gotten into manual art such as crafting,painting,folding cutting and pasting.
I am not into scrap-booking per say I am more into
Creating artworks to glorify God.
Let me tell you how I came about a beautiful site full of  talented Ladies.
I woke up one day thinking  it was time to teach my 6 year old to memorize scripture verses. So i asked my friends and family members on where to start with what verses etc.
after hours of searching for the perfect method to help my kids and myself included to memorize scriptures I finally came across the crafting idea at first it was mostly coloring and cutting and pasting words in order. But then i searched a bit deeper and I came across what was called the divine design bible verse challenge the 2008 version  I was blown away by the beautiful artwork.
I then decided to try it and have my kids try it and they love it.
Not only do we put allot of work into our cards but but we work on memorizing the scripture at the same time the craft is the reward we get for working on the memorization.
As an artist *mostly digital *
Designing works of art is a hobby of mine but now I can enjoy my self
indulge my self in a little me time and family time and at the same time Glorify my King . How great is that in my busy bee schedule I have time for my hobbies and Time for my walk with God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
so if your a crafter or designer like me what better way to put him first but to include HIM in our activities 
By the way I need to share this The Lord put this title into my heart and also made it available for me to use Design by Faith.
I know the scripture tells us to walk by faith not by sight the same is for crafting for me My inspiration comes from God he is the master artist after all.
My first Divine Design Bible challenge card
If you haven’t yet fount this forum I suggest you check it out.
Hope to see you there.
