What do you Believe?

I bought this wooden banner a few weeks ago. It was on sale at a craft store and I couldn't pass it up. It's intended use was for Christmas I think, as it had a star near the "i" (which I cut off). But I thought it was very timely, with Easter approaching.

I called Tammy to get her opinion. She said she thought it had potential. So, I sanded, and painted, and glittered, and glued. (Let me just say that the paper on the back was a pain to do).

Today I finished it and listed it on Lollishops. It is so pretty, but darn it, it just doesn't photograph well. (I've tried making my own lightbox- but it hasn't worked so well).

When I was tying the garden-themed ribbon on, I though about how the word Believe can have so many meanings- and yet, ultimately the same. You can believe in the Almighty, whatever name you call Him by. You can believe in yourself, your dreams, the bulbs coming up, the birds returning... anything. And it all comes down to the same thing- the same energy- the same being. HIM.
Thank you God, for all of my Blessings.

Lee this is gorgeous, so pretty and I love the colours you used. I can imagine all the sanding! I have not been able to do much sanding with my elbow/shoulder but recently I have found the new Kaiser tools to be fantastic. They come with a larger sanding file and some little ones to get into all those tiny spaces - if you haven't tried them - you must have them LOL
Thank you for visiting my blog again I hope you make something nice with those pretty ladies :)
