Klymntine rated for Paper crafting extravaganza! #2 on Aug 27, 2020
Comment: Karen, Thank you so much, a million times over. I was so eager to get my hands on this envelope, especially after a brutal workweek that is still going at 90 miles a minute yet somehow stuck in quicksand, haha. When I opened the envelope and saw the card, "Enjoy the Little Things", it really helped me to stop and take deep breaths! I hope you have a fabulous weekend. <3
Response: You too ~ Enjoy!
Comment: Thank you!

Hello Ate Karen! Just dropping by your profile to share to you a verse about strength as well ^^ I'm not your partner, but I just love doing profile comments :3 Hihi!

Share A Verse Of Strength swap: rarjones

When I pray, You answer me! You encourage me by giving me the STRENGTH I need. Psalm 138:3

I love that our God is a God that hears us and a God that wants to speak to us and reveal Himself and His will for our lives. Knowing that he is approachable and wanting to help in any situation brings strength. Blessings to you!

Hi ya! I'm your partner for the Easy Profile Comment #3! Wow! We have so many things in common! And so many of the same interests! 😄 I haven't made ATCs or inchies for a few years but still love 'em! And my favorite materials and colors are all natural... paper, wood, greens, blues, and browns.

Hope you're having a great start to the day! I'll leave you with this daily encouragement ... "The faithful love of the Lord never ends. His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning." (Lamentations 3:22-23)
