Barely a moment...and a bald eagle!!

Hi all!
I've been super busy and had some computer glitches...the makings of a difficult time posting and such....everytime we could get on, I'd check in as much as possible and then...blip! It is kind of scary how much you begin to rely on the technology, isn't it??

Anyway...I have FINALLY been able to post this challenge sketch from was a color challenge to use green and brown in a card...I thought to myself: green, love brown. Ha! Not so easy when those are you only colors! Of course, I think FROGS!! And even then it was a stretch!

Here I used Prism CS, Cornish Heritage Farms stamps and a mix of copics and SU markers for coloring. The frog is actually paper pieced on solid green paper and given "lift" with dimensionals. It's in by a little squeak! It is an April challenge! The scripture is a bit "off" but I think it's because the frog sloshed a little and it ended up crooked! LOL! I thought pairing the scripture with the frog (love the worm's face!) worked. Mean, you think?? ;)

Also, this is a picture my husband took on his solo canoe outing last week...incredible isn't it? To me the eagle is a perfect illustration of the majesty of our God. When I 'met' a rehabilitated eagle a few years ago, I was in awe of its regal bearing and it made me thankful that God is so good and so wonderful. I was changed significantly by that one little thing. The eagle's name? Liberty. Isn't that just.....great??

I trust the Lord is blessing and keeping you all well and busy! I'll check in whenever I can! (and a shout out to my sbs9 sister Suzann...on a cruise!! She can't say hi to us, but she can see us from there!! ;) **me waving**

Love ya!
