Good Wednesday all my crafty friends! It's another AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL day in Georgia! I tell you, we don't usually have an "identified" spring here in Georgia....it usually goes from winter straight to summer (uggghhhh!), but we really are having some beautiful springtime weather right now! I hope Mother Nature is blessing you where ever you reside!
Today I am going to share a quick tag with you that I just love! The symbolism for this tag has a deep rooted meaning for me as a believer in Christ! Trees are amazing structures and hold so much meaning to me. I love the out of doors and nothing is more soothing to me than to go on a big hike and where I can gaze upon beautiful trees and hear the wind as it rustles through them. Hiking always gives me the opportunity to convene with the Creator of those amazing structures, Father God! The Tree of Life is beautiful reminder to me that I am "rooted and built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." (Colossians 2:7) The Tree of Life has been my mantra resonating in my spirit for about two years now. I LOVE it! :)
I was so excited to do this tag that I zoomed through it! I really love when that happens though because I know, for me, that it was a "God thing!" I was stoked when I got my January Unity Stamp Layers of Life Kit in because the stamp, once again, confirmed what had been resonating in me. I stamped the beautiful tree with VersaMark and then heat embossed using black embossing powder. I then simply sprayed Tattered Angels in various colors and then flicked water here in there for some textured look. I did some "faux" stitching around the edges with my Micron Pen and used it as well for my sentiment. I highlighted with my white Signo Pen. I edged the tag with black ink and voila! :)
The core of who I am is in Christ and I want to always be reminded that my roots run deep enabling me to be all that God has called me to be! As I grow in Christ allowing the proper pruning where He sees it's needed, and then being obedient to His call on my life, I know that the fruit will be evident in my walk. I want to honor Him in all I say and do!
Have a blessed day! :)
