Well, you can always tell when it's a super muggy day here in North Texas when your coffee drink from McDonald's is sweating worse than you are. The humidity is still in hangover mode from our SCARY storms from two nights ago (lightning struck VERY near our car on the way home that evening...all we could see was white!). There were 16 tornadoes that touched down and it's been reported that some people are still missing. Although the tornadoes and devastation happened several miles from us, I still want to say that it was too close for comfort! Keep those folks in Granbury, Cleburne and the surrounding areas in your thoughts and prayers.
We will never know why things happen the way they do, but all we can do is trust that God is in control. I thought this verse was an appropriate reminder (and one of my all-time favorites), to keep in mind when things seem pointless and harsh. It's a Plain Jane stamp from Verve, Jeremiah 33:3. I used last week's Viva La Verve sketch and combined it with some unique colors and patterns, along with the Cross Dies, Scallop Trim Trio and Banner Bundle Dies. I tied the pretty double bow with the luscious Truly, Madly, Deeply Seam Binding ribbon. I LOVE THAT STUFF and the colors are amazing!
Now I think I'll just leave this card out for a while and let that verse keep sinking in... ;)
SUSIE Q-TIP: I told ya'll how much I'm loving the little wood cutout embellishments that are popping up everywhere. I wondered how easy it would be to put that brad through the center. I just used my piercing tool and gently poked a hole through it, no problem. It did splinter a bit on the back, but you can't tell...good thing it's double-sided. Your welcome.
