All Occasion Card Using DS4J Art Deco Beauty and CTMH Penelope Paper

Hello friends.   How is everyone doing?  We had some rain here in Southern CA and going to have more tonight or tomorrow, I think.  We sure do need more; but too much rain can cause rock slides in the burned areas; so it is a balancing act to keep that from happening.  I don't think Mother Nature cares about that too much.  LOL!  

Are you aware that Digi Stamps 4 Joy (DS4J) now has a Facebook group?  Click the link and request to join; so that you can have fun creating with their awesome digis.  They are having a Progressive challenge each month and this beautiful butterfly is the freebie for this month.   I decided to create a CAS card this time; as I rarely get a chance to do that.  If you download your freebie; and create with it each month; posting on Facebook group challenge; you get the next month's image free.  

for March Progressive Challenge Freebie

  23. Love the simplicity of your creation. We are so blessed with your participation in our previous Challenge and would love to have you back for our current Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. I want to share with you the inspiration of God's Word from Habakkuk 2:3-4 and it says, " For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay. “See, the enemy is puffed up; his desires are not upright— but the righteous person will live by his faithfulness---." Have an awesome week!
