Thank you all so much for the warm words of encouragement on our little man's tournament ~ such a unique experience from the opening ceremonies to competing. Although he didn't place , we are so proud that he got up there in the ring to complete with kids twice his size and height - not to mention do his Shim Jun 1st Degree Black Belt form, 81 moves long!
He was awarded the Songham Spirit Award which is a beautiful medal to add to his repetoire :) This was his 3rd TKD tournament and while it doesn't get any easier for me *gulp!*, I have to stand proud in his accomplishments of being courageous, strong and showing amazing sportsmanship.
He is my David!
And I won't keep you waiting any longer! He chose #17 as a random number which means ... congratulations goes to LYNN McAuley on winning the Halloween critters blog candy!! Please contact me at Kelnkids@aol.com
so I can get your prize out to you!
Todays' card is for the Crafters of Faith blogging group, a blessed
group of sisters in Christ and crafting! This month, our hostess Carol is having some computer troubles and taking a bit of a break so I stepped in for her with "Anything Goes" this month - letting the girls chose their own scriptures, image and/or sentiment ... to surprise us! :)
This is the bible verse I chose to use this month, one that I'm always particularly fond of not just in times of sorrow but in sharing that God's love for us is truly eminent and abundant:
May the God of hope fill you with all the joy an peace as you trust in Him,
so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~Roman 15:13
And my card!
I went with the simple approach this time around - using a stamp from
Our Daily Bread's Quote collection, stamped in Bermuda Bay ink to match the cardstock/papers and "spritzed" around the edge with Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Carribbean Blue. I also added on a bold butterfly using the
And the card inside, which I left blank for now.
I'll enter this card into the ODBDSLC172 challenge "Anything Goes" and Sweet Stampin' Challenge "Things with Wings" ~

Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
