SSCC #5 - Ecclesiastes 3:1

Happy Saturday! I have so enjoyed participating in the SSCC #5 this week -- blogger has been quite the challenge today so hopefully, this post is THE ONE! ;) And here's our beautiful dog, Brandy -- she's reading my SSCC card - it must be the deer! Yes, that's it! Tee hee! Destructo-dog is actually probably trying to finagle a way to EAT IT, lol!

Back to the challenge! This week's SSCC was hosted by the lovely Korin from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps. {Take a peek if you haven't!} The challenge was to use Fall Colors so this was quite a fun challenge for me - I grabbed my SU cardstocks in various Fall colors along with some matching dsp - brought out a stamp that is very special to me and hasn't seen ink until this card :) (deets soon to follow, I believe it's from Japan .....) It took me forever to color this image with pretty much most of my prismamarkers *smile!* and the old adage "patience is a virtue" kept running through my mind! I'm so happy with the results and sadly, Brandy cannot have it, ROFL! The verse of the week is Ecc. 3:1 "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." It has always been a favorite of mine -- and I was thrilled to find it in a set of SU stamps that I had. I paired with some flowers in fall colors and a matching button with twine ...... and here it is! I hope you get the chance to play along, too! Blessings!

  5. I had to laugh because I call my two Labs "Destructo-Dog" too! Super cute card, love the photo of your fur baby salivating over it :)

  6. OH, this is soo sooo DEER!! :) LOL Seriously though, I just love this image and those leaves and colors!! :) Awesome card.

    And it's so funny I take my cards out onto my picnic table to get the best photos and my cat kept jumping up and trying to scratch her face on my card! LOL - Of course I grabbed her before she did, but I almost took a picture of that. Too funny. Our pets are sure curious. :)

    Thanks again for playing along with us this week!! :)

  7. This is a very cool card. Your coloring and layout are wonderful! We have a little boston who was trying to climb up and get the card and I was taking pic this afternoon. We also call him mr destructo. Too funny!! smiles

    What a great card, Kels. One of my fave passages of scripture, too. Love how you tucked the flowers behind the corner of your image - great touch!
