Psalm 119:131-132 "I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands. Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name. Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me."
Do you find yourself in a longing mode with an empty feeling--a yearning-for-something- else-attitude?
Maybe that feeling is the hole in your heart waiting to be filled with the living Lord. Seek His word. Find his compassion, peace and strength by asking. Seek His wisdom for all your ways. Don't hide from Him, seek Him out. Long for Him! You won't be disappointed.

This card base is watercolor paper measuring 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", the usual Artist Trading Card format. I used ribbon, faux pearls, buttons, a leaf skeleton, copied image, gel medium, finger nail polish, ink and paint.

Hi Lydia, don't think I've ever commented here before but I was curious if you ever enlarge your miniature cards...this piece has a great design layout and I wondered how it would look much larger.

Hi, Karoda, yes I do enlarge many of my designs into book cover size, usually around 5" x 7." I think you are right about this one. I can imagine it in a larger format.
