Today I am posting a couple of cards that I had made for Heartfelt Creations DT call. I had applied by email at the very last minute after seeing their DT call on SCS. Before I sent the email, I had gone to take a quick look at their stamps to see if I was interested because I was not aware of the company. I really liked that they seemed to have a lot of faith based stamps so I just went for it. One of those last minute impulse moves!
I made the first round and I was sent a couple of stamps and a set of dies to make 2 cards for the final round. While waiting to hear if I would make the DT, I was contacted by two other companies... asking me to join their DT! So... I had to bail out before the DT was announced but the owner was super nice and understanding so I wanted to make sure to tell you about them. You can check out their stamps HERE.
Speaking of... I prayed a long time ago asking God to show me if He wanted me to stay in this biz because of all the guilt I was feeling about the energy and time I spend. I also specifically asked at the time for Him to show me if He wanted me to be any design teams... that I would be asked. That sounds conceited a little bit but I assure you... I don't have a conceited bone in my body... maybe several mean ones ... but no conceited ones! Anyway... He continues to answer my prayer and His timing is always perfect.
All of that to say... I took what I had asked God to do.. into my own hands. I almost got myself into a position of ... if I made the team.. having to turn around and ask to be off of it.. which I would not want to do. OR... not be able to accept a DT position with the company that I haven't announced yet.
God wants only the best for me and this was just another lesson to me that HE is in control! He knows my heart and what my goals are. Those goals have changed over time and I know it is a result of God changing my heart to make His will... my goals. And I am more than good with that!
Peace and Love!
