Little Note Card

Today I want to share with you a Make It Now project from Design Space.  In DS it is called Watercolor Floral Wedding Thank You Card.  I changed it a little bit and made it a birthday card.
This file prints a watercolor flower picture but I felt it was too light for the card so I printed another flower group from the AG Vintage Florals digital cartridge.  Also, I changed the salutation from Thank you to Happy Birthday.  

Have you tried the Make It Now projects.  There are so many fun things to make.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope your week is extraordinary.  May the love of God surround you and hide you under the shadow of His wings.  Psalm 91:4 says,  4He will cover you with His pinions, And under His wings you may seek refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.
I'm so thankful for that refuge He gives us.

God Bless You!!! Peggy

DS4J Mid-month October Challenge

It's mid-month posting for the DS4J October Challenge.  Our theme this month is "Make Your Own Background".  Now you might be thinking, "I'm not good at making backgrounds".  Making a background doesn't have to be hard.  You can use a doily, a die cut or an embossing folder(which is what I did) or any number of things.  Team B has created a lot of pretty inspiration for this phase of the challenge and I hope you will join us.  Be sure to visit here for more inspiration and information.

This is my design team card.
Card Supplies:
5X7 card base
Background - Poinsettia Blooms from AG Holiday Seasonal Embossing Folders.

Wink of Stella added to the candles and poinsettias for some sparkle.
Stickles added to candle holder and centers of poinsettias.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I always enjoy your comments.

It's hard not to see God as the colors of fall start emerging; the beautiful golds, oranges, reds, so many hues and shades.  I love Fall, the cooler nights and pleasant days.  Not too hot and not too cold.  Fall is our respite from the hot days of summer, here in the south.  How marvelous are your works, O Lord.  Psalm 8:3King James Version (KJV)
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
God Bless You!!!! Peggy

Today I thank God that He never changes.  Heb. 13:8 says, Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.  In this world where there is so much uncertainty, it's comforting to know that we can count on the Lord for his steadfastness.

Jingle Bells Card

I have another card for you today from the AG Christmas Cards 2 cartridge.  You notice the card and the embellishment have the same patterns.  However, I did not cut all the layers for the card.  I chose each layer in Cricut Design Space, changed them from a cut file to a print file.  The file comes into DS grouped with an envelope.  I didn't make the envelope.  I ungrouped the file, then deleted the envelope.  I then highlighted the card and "attached" it together.  This made it a print then cut file.  If I had not attached the layers together, DS would have printed all the layers.

I did cut all the layers for the center bells embellishment and attached it with foam adhesive.

This cartridge has so many pretty cards & embellishments on it.  I think it was worth the investment.  It's on HSN and it comes with a $10 digital credit on Cricut.com.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope your day is filled with peace.

I want to thank God today for His Faithfulness.  There's a scripture in Lamentations that says,  Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)  When we started our blog, we decided on Daily Grace Creations for a name because we experience God's Grace & Mercy new every morning.  I thank Him so much that each day is a new start.

God Bless You!!!  Peggy

Beautiful Poinsettias

My card today is another Christmas card.  I love to make Christmas cards.  I'm sure I have enough made for this year and then some. But when I come across beautiful embossing folders and files in a cartridge that compliments the folder, I have to make a card.  

Card Ingredients:
5X7 card base
Embossing Folder - Poinsettia Blooms from AG Holiday Seasonal Embossing Folders.  
Poinsettia - File from Anna's Christmas Card 2 Cartridge
Both of these items can be found at this time on HSN.  Search Anna Griffin.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I hope your weekend is extremely pleasant. 

I want to start a process of consciously thanking God for something each day.  Today, it's life. Life is so precious and we take it for granted. I know I have lived more days than I have left and I truly thank Him for these days.  Today, a dear friend of mine lost a granddaughter at the young age of 18.  She and her twin sister were in an accident.  Please pray for this family and be thankful for your life God has given you.

God Bless You!!!  Peggy
