A New Creation

I wanted to take a moment and share my Cuttlebug project from last week with you. The Cuttlebug Challenge blog is much more than just a challenge blog - it's a teaching and inspiration blog too!

We were challenged to create a wall hanging and as I was thinking about what to create, the verse from 2 Corinthians 5:17 came to mind: "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" And I thought of butterflies, who undergo a complete transformation in their lifetime. And how God is transforming me every day. Our family is certainly facing some trials right now and it's easy to get discouraged. But then I remember that He is guiding my path and I should trust Him. So I made a simple wall plaque to remind me that though I face failures, they are not the end of the world. That I am a new creation in Christ.

What do you think of that lime green swirl? It's some packing tape I picked up in the dollar section at Michaels. Very cool stuff. I adhered it to some white cardstock since my base was embossed. I love that shade of green paired with that deep red!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is such a beautiful card Cassie. I love it! AND I love the tape also. I picked it up in Michaels in the hot pink color.
