In His Time...

Such a simple saying that means so much...sometimes there are things in life that we want right at this moment and in His gracious way He says no, which sometimes means wait, and sometimes really is just no but all in His time the plan for your life is revealed and it is always what turns out to be what is best.

For this card I used the set Beautiful Borders from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I love this set and I love butterflies so I was excited to stamp this one. I just repeated the border several times from the bottom up stopping where I thought it looked good. *Go from the bottom up, that way your bottom row isn't cut off* I then used my score pal and embossed the two lines in which I placed the sentiment. The sentiment comes from another SNSS set, In His Time. The flower was a paper flower I've had and I ran it through my Cuttlbug in an embossing folder, inked it, layered a silk hydrangea on it with a button and a bit ribbon. To finish it I cut and embossed a cream panel for the top and that's it!

I hope that whatever you want in life you will submit to His time and know that He always has your best in mind:) Thanks for stopping by!

This is lovely and that sentiment is so true. His timing is perfect, even when it doesn't always feel like it on our human timeframe. We need to be patient and waitu upon the Lord, but it isn't easy sometimes. I like that border of butterflies too and the embossed folder looks lovely.

Okay I FINALLY visited the Sweet n Sassy stamps web site and ordered two of the sets, two more that are on a wish list. :) Thank you, those scripture verses are just too pretty to pass by. And I ordered the lighthouse . . , don't have any of those and my MIL is particularly fond of them. Thank you!!!!
