Grace Alone

Grace: It is actually my "word" for 2016.
To show more grace and to be thankful for the grace that has been shown to me.
So many times I pray to be given the "grace to get me through" a certain situation and
in those times I can feel God's presence as He guides me and gives me the
right words and actions to put forth.  
Grace= unmerited favor.  

Yesterday I was up on the Bella Blvd Blog with
this sweet "Grace Alone" hanger

I love adding little hangers to cupboard knobs or giving them for gifts! 
Today I have a colorful, house-shaped hanging featuring the 
Whatever Is Lovely Collection and stickers from the Illustrated Faith line.

I started with a chipboard house shape that I covered with patterned paper. 
I used large enamel dots to outline the scallops of the roofline. The front of the
 house was decorated with one of the 3X4 journal cards and a border of the
 die-cut scallop sticker.

Before dressing the back of the house with patterned paper, pom pom trim 
was glued around the edge, as well as baker’s twine. I hand-cut four butterflies
 from the “Lovely Paper” and layered a smaller one on top of a larger one before
 attaching them. The ‘tails’ of the butterflies were cut from one of the label stickers.
 A cheery ribbon was added to the top and is now ready for hanging!
Supplies:
Illustrated Faith Genesis Kit: Banner Stickers; IF Whatever is Lovely: 
Treasures & Text, Lovely, 3x4’s; Enamel Dots: Cotton Candy, Bell Pepper

Glad you stopped by!
