C4C431: I ♥ Puppies, sketches, and faith!

Good Morning, friends!
We're having internet connection issues here at home
so I'm bouncing by more like in the afternoon!
*Crossing my fingers Comcast has it fixed now* 

Today starts a new challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges and it's a fun sketch challenge.
The sketch looked like a perfect one to use as a base for a CAS card
to use as a foundation for my Crafters of Faith card, too.

Tracie is the hostess for the Crafters of Faith for April
and gave us this scripture/challenge theme:
 For my challenge I decided to use the Scripture "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your Heart" which is from Psalms 37:4.  I love hearts so I asked everyone to have a heart somewhere on their card.
Based on her challenge and the wonderful C4C sketch, I came up with my card.
I knew I wanted to use "You Have my Heart" from My Favorite Things,
a stamp/die set I was very lucky to scoop up at their huge retirement sale.

Truthfully, anything with puppies has my heart ♥
This funny thing happens whenever I see a puppy stamp set,
it magically falls into my shopping cart!  

And here's the inside of my card:

If you'd like to play along with the Crazy 4 Challenges,
you can find the blog in the link and here's a peek at the sketch ↓

The fun thing about challenges is they can often springboard your creativity!
Maybe you are stuck in a rut or can't quite come up with putting together
a card idea and make the card come together.
Sketches are a great baseline to do just that!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
