MCT: Trending Now

Hi, today we are creating projects that are Trending Now over on the My Creative Time blog. The trend we are working with today is, Wanderlust. A few definitions are: 1. A very strong or irresistible impulse to travel. 2. strong longing for or impulse toward wandering 3. the irresistible and overwhelming feeling to join nature, fresh air and high mountains by hiking or climbing. I chose to focus on the traveling and knew I wanted to use the ever so cute little paper airplane. 

My background map pattern paper was cut out using the Stitched Square Dies Inside & Out. Which I matted and created my card base around. Love these dies along with the Stitched Rectangular Frame dies. They make card making so much easier!! If you haven't gotten either of them yet, I highly recommend them!

I used Versamark ink along with Recollection's Gold embossing powder to stamp down my heart trail using the stamp from the Fun Paper Airplane die. I didn't have any gold glittery paper on hand, so I just made some with the same embossing powder. I then cut out the super cute little Fun Paper Airplane. Then I glued on a adorable little heart from the Seasonal Greetings stamp set. I cut out a few more and then added them all around my little paper airplane. 

I added the fun little banner using the Fun Stitched Tag dies. I then stamped the sentiment from The Sky Is The Limit Stamp Set onto the Trio Stitched Banner die. I added couple of glitter hearts to the banner using the Seasonal Greetings stamp set again. 

I finished by embellishing the card with some gold cord along with mini gold sequins.

    Can man control the earth's climate, or is God in control of the weather? Do man-made carbon dioxide emission control the climate of the earth or does God control the weather? Who created the weather, man or God?

    Genesis 7:4 "For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made."(NKJV)

    Question: Did man-made CO2 emissions cause it to rain forty days and forty nights, and destroy everything but what was on the ark with Noah?

    Matthew 8:24-27......26 But He said to them, "Why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea. And there was great calm.........(NKJV)

    Questions: Did man-made CO2 emissions cause the storm. Did man calm the storm by controlling their carbon footprint?

    Job 37 1:24.... 6 For He says to the snow, 'Be on the earth': Likewise to the gentle rain and heavy rain of His strength......(NKJV)

    Question: Do men have the ability to control the climate by controlling man-made CO2 emissions?

    Psalm 135:6-7 Whatever the Lord pleases He does, In heaven and on earth, In the seas and in all deep places. 7 He causes the vapors to ascend from the ends of the earth; He makes lightning for the rain; He brings the wind out of His treasuries.(NKJV)

    Question: Can men control the climate by controlling man-made CO2 emissions?

    Who is in control of the climate, God in heaven or puny men on earth?

    [NOTE: Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant; neither is oxygen nor water. CO2, O, and H2O are necessary to sustain life.]
