Here is my Card and Verse I submitted:




One of my favorite verses with quite a story of how my daughter won a poster of this verse, on black velvet:


We were at the Expo, and my daughter (about 12)  wanted to throw darts at the balloons and you could win a poster... But they all were terrible pictures of skulls & cross bones... etc. and I tried to talk her out of it.but she persisted, so she threw a dart at the balloon, and we both saw that dart going toward the balloon and then took a dip of about 6 inches...and hit the balloon below it... and we were stunned with a poster with this verse, beautifully laid out on a black velvet!! I didn't even see that they had any Christian ones there.... well that poster stayed with us for a very long time, and I never forgot that day...

What a BLESSING from the Lord!!

Thanks Kelley for printing my verse on rubber.... Hugs

Hi Jan!

I am so glad you shared your story with us. I LOVE this Scripture. I learned it as a child in my Synagogue...but I believe it was from Dueteronomy. This is stunning. I love the font...the bow and the glittery paper are stunning. As is the black lace, and the lovely flower with the black mixed in with the leaves. I love how you propped up the Scripture! The black pearls also escaped me, but they look fantastic with the row under it! This is truly a work of love. It is sensational!

He IS Able!
