Bless His Holy Name!

Christian Paper Crafts Wednesday Case Artist WCA106 {6-1-11} Mom3

Bless the Lord, O my soul and all that is within me. Bless His holy name. Psalm 103:1

If you’re looking for this week’s Christian Paper Crafts Wednesday Case Artist, you’re going to need to get up early. . .many mornings you’ll find her in her favorite chair, with a cup of coffee and her Bible as she basks in the glow of the rising sun (and the Risen Son!). When she’s not there, it’s because she’s headed off for an early shift ministering as a nurse to those incarcerated at the county jail.

Our Wednesday CASE Artist, Mom3, is talented and resourceful, loves to re-purpose and to use innovative items in her projects. She is also very fond of textures and textiles. . .which is fitting for someone who has a loom in one room of her home. Not only is Robyn, as we all know her, a member of the Christian Paper Crafts Design Team, she is co-hostess of the Fun on Friday Challenge and hostess of the Scrap Your Heritage Scrapbook Challenge.

She also loves the textures of life. Robyn is an encourager and a nurturer and a true blessing from the Lord. Her gifts of mercy and encouragement shine brightly from frequent use. She says that her favorite areas of nursing “are the beginning and ending, while caring for people.” She and her devoted husband have grown children and grandchildren, and a newly-turned teenager, who is home-schooled--more easily some days than others, or so says his mom and teacher.

Robyn says, "I have no list of accomplishments in the paper crafting world, but am blessed beyond words to be able to participate here for this season in my life. God reveals some profound thoughts to me through Bible study and searching for just the right challenge. So with His wisdom in mind, I pray over each challenge offered for our membership at Christian Paper Crafts.”
You can join us in honoring our dear sister by taking a look through the gallery of Mom3 and crafting a card or project inspired by what you see there. Be sure not to copy exactly: make it your own! When uploading your card or project to the Christian Paper Crafts gallery, please use the keyword WCA106 (no spaces or commas and no commas between keywords, either!). When posting anywhere else online, please use the keyword CPC-WCA106. Have a blessed day!

Our Wednesday CASE Artist is talented and resourceful, loves to re-purpose and to use innovative items in her projects. When I saw what she did recently, I knew what I was going to CASE! The base of this card is a paper bag and it's designed to be a gift card holder and mini-photo album.

It's very easy. Take a lunch size paper bag, fold in half. The bag bottom will be the inside cover. and can be converted to a gift card holder.
