  1. What awesome cards Michele! I really love the details on your first card!! It's gorgeous. And the second card...so awesome!! I have not seen that stamp set before. I love it. Thanks for joining me in this incredible hop!! Scrappy hugs, Connie
    P.S. I think the banner is pretty just the way it is!! :)

  2. Both of your cards are beautiful. The purple card... Well favorite color and life bible verse so it is win, win. But your design is really nice. Your second card is awesome. Your colors speak encouragement and the saying is awesome.

  3. Actually, I really like the first card, I think it draws more attention to the quote and the cross. I think it is perfect the way it is!! thanks for the hop! great job on both cards

  4. Love both cards! The purple is just gorgeous with a gorgeous verse! The pink is very inspirational in a different way - love it!!

  5. Your cards are so beautiful! On your first card I would put the saying " Trust In The LORD Always! I love this verse and live my life by it because, I have a chronic illness called fibromyalgia and also have a son with a form of autism. I have to trust the Lord to be with me and guide me to get through every day. Your second card means a lot to me also because, I have lost my grandma, grandpa and a aunt to cancer. I also have an uncle fighting it right now. Thank you for sharing your wonderful cards.

  6. Your cards are both just beautiful and packed with powerful messages that definitely fill the soul with hope and love directed by the almighty himself.
    You are a gal who creates with passion. YOU ROCK!!

  7. I love both cards!! The colors on the 2nd one are awesome!! I would simply put "TRUST" on the banner.

  8. Michelle, this is such a beautiful card. I love the color purple. It's gorgeous just the way it is, but if you want to add something to it how about considering some small butterflies. Butterflies transition 4 times in the course of their lives (egg, to larvae, to cocoon and from the cocoon the butterfly) ... As Christians, we continually transform and grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ as we dedicate our lives to trusting Him with our whole heart and relying on His guidance from day to day. Didn't mean to get all deep on you, lol.

    It was fun hopping with you.

  11. Both of your projects are beautiful. I love the lavender and dies you used for your Proverb 3:5,6 card. Great job!

  12. Purple is my favorite color so I love the puple/lavender card and the Proverb! I would put in the bottom strip- "Let Go & Let God." I love the paper you used on your cancer survivor card as well. I just became a new follower on Pinterest and here on your blog. I enjoyed hopping with you! :)
