Twist of Faith #51 - Animals




Welcome to a new challenge at Twist of Faith.  We promote making cards to encourage family and friends using Scripture, uplifting or encouraging quote somewhere on your card.

This week we want to see Animal(s) on your project.

The design team is using the cute animals from our sponsor, Meljen's Designs. She is donating 4 digi outline images to our lucky winner.

 
My card has MelJen's "Penpal Mouse" image. I thought it would be great for back to school cards for my grandsons in the Christian school.


Despite all the wonderful mouse stories I read to my kids and the first graders I taught for many years, I actually hate mice. Since we live on a farm, the country mice love my kitchen! But I couldn't resist this mouse with a pencil. He goes really well with this verse from Proverbs about writing LOVE and FAITHFULNESS on your heart. What we write with a pencil can be erased so easily, but I believe the intent of this verse was something much more permanent. I'd like to think the tablets are stone, like the ones Moses received with the Ten Commandments, with the LOVE and FAITHFULNESS permanently inscribed in our hearts. Love for God, Love for others, and habits of faithfulness to Him and His Word become positive habits so that others can see Jesus in us. They can see God at work in our lives. These are among the things I want to impress on my grandkids.

 


If you'd like to use this sentiment sometime, I saved it as a jpg file. You can click on it to get the larger image, then right click and do a "save as."  You can resize it to a smaller size and print it on a 4" x 6" piece of cardstock.  I keep a file of Word Art for special Scripture cards. You can also find more free word art at Word Art Wednesday and Word Art by Karen Murray at Papercraft Memories.

I hope you will find it easy to use an animal image and positive sentiment to share with us. We love to see your creativity! You can share it here at Twist of Faith!
