I needed a card for a couple at church, that are getting married; I looked in the stores but with all the many cards out there, I could not find one. I decided to make my own. It was a lot of fun, but it did take a little time. I even made an envelope. For the art work I did pen and ink; it was very simple but it worked nicely. I used card stock and printed the poem on velum which I then glued to the card stock at the top. The drawing I glued to black card stock and some scrap book paper, which I had on hand. The black strip at the bottom is just a piece of card stock that I glued onto the velum.
For the envelope I used brown light weight packaging paper and lined it with hand made tissue paper. The tissue paper has pressed dried leaves in it; I found it at the Dollar Tree. The tissue paper also made the envelope sturdy. To make the envelope, I took a pre-made envelope apart to see how it was constructed; then I took measurements of my card and made a pattern to fit. I then glued it together along the sides. The flowers on the outside of the card are also made out of the same tissue paper and some seed beads. I also continued the same vine pattern from the card to the envelope.

Keep me oh Lord from devising my own plans.
May I continue to give myself fully unto you;
For I know that is what you desire for me to do.
Lord may I be obedient to thy word;
So I may not reap wrongs I have stored.
For your blessings are on me
When that still small voice I hear;
But when I turn my eyes towards the world
My heart is filled with fear.
Elohim He is my Creator
El Elyon my all sovereign Lord
El Roi sees my innermost being
El Shaddi my all- sufficient one.
My Lord has many names
But my Lord God, He is one.
May I learn to love and trust in Him;

I really like these plates; I like the bird and I like red.

What are some of the responsibilities you have in your home and life? Would the promised benefits of godly wisdom listed in Proverbs help you fulfill those responsibilities? How? Remember if you are not yet married and are waiting for God to send you someone, this is your preparation time. You should be preparing for that time. While all the homemaking skills are needed and important you will be most beneficial to your future husband if you gain godly wisdom. You will be the Proverbs 31 lady and he will have found the greatest treasure, apart from God, in you. What a blessing. God is good all the time; his love and care for us is unmeasurable.(:
