Divine Design for March

It's time for Divine Design! This venture was started by my sweet friend Lori over a year ago. The concept was simple and we've kept it that way. Chose a scripture that has touched you and make it into a card or other project. I started making these 6x6 scrapbook pages and am filling some cute little 6x6 albums. It's such a joy to go back and look at the album and remember the times where a particular Bible verse inspired and strengthened me.
That brings me to my verse for this month.

"The Lord is faithful; and HE will strengthen and protect you."
~2 Thessalonians 3:3

He is SO faithful. Through every trial and every temptation, HE is faithful. There are several places in the Bible where He reminds us of that. I think it's because we need the reminder, don't you?My project is SO simple this month. Mainly out of necessity as I've got some major deadlines looming. In fact, I didn't even stamp! But, you know what? That's okay!
The verse is diecut from a 12x12 sheet of scriptures and quotes. The bow was a trick I learned from my friend,
Jami! And there is a reason I chose this rose paper. I've been working on a project with Katie's teacher and roses are part of the theme. My dear sweet hubby had a memory of a designer paper with roses. He was so obsessed with the memory that he searched high and low through my stamp room trying to find this sheet of paper he was remembering. We finally came across this sheet of rose paper. He was thinking it was pink, but admits this may be it. It won't work for the other project, but it fit right into my color scheme here. And I will always look at this page and remember my hubby's search! LOL
My friends Lori, Taylor, Nancy and Jami, will also be posting their scripture projects today. I hope you will join us. If you post on Splitcoast, use the keyword BVC09 so we can find your project and comment!
