March ’18 Challenges

Peaceful In My Soul
Location:  Rush Ranch, Eastern Oregon
Wx:  Snow/rain
Listening to:  Soundscapes

The rains of the season splash against my windows.  The crockpot simmers with the inviting scents of homemade stew.  Today it is peaceful in my soul. It reminds me of the lyrics of  “Peace in My Soul”,  by Jermaine Edwards:

“There’s a peace in my soul when I’m with You
There’s a peace in my soul when my spirit is in tune
You’re my Master and I’m not a slave to sin anymore
There’s a peace running deep in my soul. 

In Your will, that’s my strength when I’m with You
Just can’t stop getting closer to You
When my mind now renewed and conformed to the image of You
There’s a peace running deep in my soul.

My spirit bears witness that I’m a child of a King
And I’m sorry I just can’t walk the way I used to
Say the things I used to do I just can’t do them no more
There’s a peace running deep from my soul.”

At the Rush Ranch, things march forward in March.  Moving the clocks forward (I hate that).  Changing vehicle snow tires to summer tires.  Cleaning out flower beds, and trimming trees.  Cleaning out the horse barn, and repairing the fencing line.  The usual.  New birds show up every day with the promise of spring.  Red-winged blackbirds and Kittyhawks have arrived just this week.  It will be another month before I begin looking for hummingbirds. I wait, some days with my nose pressed against the windowpane, for spring.  Glorious SPRING!

I have two downloads for you today.  Both were Designer Challenges at Pixelscrapper.  One theme was on birds, and the other was on “The Letter J”.

I don’t draw birds well, so I just used antique bird paintings to make journal cards with – and then I did make one bird with a swirly tail and carrying a beaded chain. Sort of a whimsical peep.  The journal cards are 3inX4in. You can see and download the other designer kits here.

The “Letter J” challenge required several things, such as jade, something jagged, something joyful, jewelry, etc.  It was a rather enjoyable challenge.   You can see and download the other designer kits here.

As always, these are free to download and are CU for CU friendly.  Use as you wish, and in return, please do a kindness for another.



Thank you for visiting my humble blog, and I look forward to providing you with another Blog Train kit on April 1st!

  1. I’m glad you chose to participate, Sunny. The bird cards are beautiful, and that little whimsical shabby-chic bird you drew BEGS to have a page designed around it! Don’t sell yourself short; while your drawing abilities might not match your preferred design style, you still draw neat elements. 🙂

  2. I was so excited finding your site! I am a beginner at Digi-Scrapping and fell in love with your designs on pixel scrapper. They are so beautiful and elaborately done. I grew up under my Mother’s love of plants and I’m enamored with your flower designs. Faithfully grabbing your pieces on pixel scrapper daily. 🙂
    I guess what I enjoy most is that I can create something simple and beautiful without the need to be gaudy, and to create something so delightfully artful! Thank you so much for the love and care that you put into all your work.

    May God bless you and keep you in his arms always.
