Yes, I know it’s St Patrick’s Day, and I know I am posting a Christmas card!!! (There is green on my card!) But before I post, I have a little St Patrick’s prayer for you:
Christ be with me,
Christ within me,
Christ behind me,
Christ before me,
Christ beside me,
Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ in quiet,
Christ in danger,
Christ in heart of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
Isn’t that lovely? This was on a portion of St Patrick’s breastplate, and dates from the early fifth century. A friend gave me a book on the meditations on this prayer, and I think it is just so simple, yet so profound! I think I could begin all my prayer time with this. Now, on to my (secular) Christmas card!!!
This uses the sketch from yesterday’s SCS sketch challenge:
and was such a cheater card---almost no stamping; I let the paper and the chipboard tag do all the work! The little horizontal panel does has a bit of Linen stamped on it in Crumb Cake, but that’s about it, other than the inside! And look who came along to help me as I was photographing it outside:
LOL, the closeness of Pumpkin makes her look gigantic—or makes my card look miniscule!!! It’s all a matter of depth perception! She is not a giant cat at all! :D Thanks for visiting today----it is finally WARM here in SE PA!!! Enjoy your day!
