McMahon Vintage Digitals - Chaise Maiden

Good Morning my Blogger Friends.. This is for McMahon 5, this image is 'Chaise Maiden'. I colored this with copics and used Basic Gray dp with Martha Steward punch, that flower is from McMahon 5. 

I have decided that I am not DT material!! So this will be my last card for Sue at McMahon 5. It seems when it comes to working as a DT for some reason my mind goes into over drive and I become highly anxious, making sure I  come up with a design. I know it is suppose to be fun, but the moment I say yes, it turns into a serious job and I no longer have peace nor do I have fun :). So not to cause my self anguish,  I was smart and resigned. I feel at peace with Stamp Sister in Christ, for I know that is exactly where God wants me to be and how HE wants me focused.

Thank you for stopping by
Have a Blessed Day
Rebekka

What a lovely card and great coloring of the image. Love how you punched the DP and accented with the black, gorgeous. I am so glad that you know what works for you so that your craft is fun and not a job, proud of you and I agree, that God let's you know. :)

Oh Becky, this card is just simply beautiful! Wonderful design and coloring and gorgeous. Yes, I think DT are suppose to be fun - but I hear where you're coming from on this as sometimes it's just over whelming. I know you'll be missed though.

Beautiful card Rebekka! I am glad you figured out what works for you. I had to recently make that decision too with a digital scrapbook designer I created for. I just got too anxious whenever I had to make another layout that I finally just decided to opt out and give myself some breathing room. Best decision I have made.

Regarding yout DT I think you are totally correct it should be Fun, and The Lord knows the plans he has for you and we need to be where he can use us.We are meant to have peace not anxiety, what one finds enjoyment in doesn't work for others Bless you Sister in your decision xx
Huge hugs Mau xx

Hi Rebekka~

I can't believe you found out while my friend, Wendy, was trying to figure out why the post had so many "linkwithin" photos posted throughout the blog post!

I am so glad that you were randomly chosen. You do so much to share your love of the Lord with others!

This card of yours is beautiful. The design is so very detailed-- Gorgeous! Was it your idea to post the art hanging in the bg? So clever!Your coloring is really extraordinary! I love the top layer of dp on the left with the paper lace on it. It is beautiful.

Your card is beautiful and I very much understand how you feel. I do the same thing and have to tell myself to slow down that it's not a race. Following your heart and where the Lord wants you is most important. Thank you for sharing this. Hugs to you.

Have a great evening.

Rebekka I am sorry to see you leave, but I can understand where you are 'coming from' and to know God and know His Peace in our lives is the most important thing. Then we can be and do who and what He wants of us.
Love this card - you have coloured it beautifully and the lace down the edge really captures the feel of the era of the image.
Blessings
Maxine

I love how you colored the image Becky. Such a pretty card. I'm sure you will be missed on the DT team but your right....it should be fun and not stressful. It shows in your cards just how much you love to create them!

MiamiKel said...

Becky, your work is always beautiful in my eyes! I think more so to your gorgeous colors and card creations with such elegance, is the passion and SPIRIT of our heavenly Father that you put behind your posts - you touch so many with your unwavering posts, and that's admirable. He is good, all the time and leads the way! x0x0
