Crafters of Faith - Nature!


Hi there!  Just a quick post -- PTA meeting and then a fellowship planning meeting after that and back to back appts with the kids this afternoon and add on some Tae Kwan Do for little man in the evening - whew! But I am so excited to post our 2nd challenge for the Crafters of Faith, the February challenge.  We are a faith based, crafting chatting group formed on SCS and this month, our hostess is the sweet and lovely Jackie!  Here are her requirements for the challenge:

I want you to use NON TRADITIONAL colors to create your project
Your creation must be made with NATURE as the main theme....flowers, trees, mountains, water---you get the idea and
Finally, I want to see at least 1 circle shape on your creation.

Since this was the February posting, I decided to use aqua blue for a February card instead of red!  I also used hues of pinks, peach and green to compliment the paper that I paired up with yet another SU! stamp set from my "T.I.O.T.S in 2012" stack of stamps :)  I love this Serene Spring SU! set and believe this is the first time I've inked up this little birdie and flower pot.  My circles are in the DSP and the buttons.  I carried the design over to my card inside, as I always strive to do and did add a little note of prayer with a Verve sentiment I had on hand.  I love how this card turned out - it just brings so much of the Spring to mind.  This one is heading off to a special friend but she'll get to peek at it here today at least *smile!*


Serene Spring!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop in and see what the other Crafting sisters in Faith have made!  They are right over there -------------------> 
in my sidebar! I am so sorry for the bad lighting - the indoor lighting in my craft area is just terrible and I will try again in natural light as soon as I make it home in the early morning :)  Thank you, Jackie, for a wonderful challenge this month (yes, it's officially March, but we were waiting for our wonderful hostess!)  


Big hugs,

Bigger Blessings!

  30. Hi There Stranger:
    Sorry that I haven't commented or been by in a while. Just so overwhelmed with all the places I want to be and all the cards I want to make that I don't get either one of them done, only my STAEDTLER Design Team work. So sorry for not being more supportive of your beautiful work. Hope that you are doing well and was thinking of you and your family. Wondering how your hubby is doing and the kids. Miss you since our design team days together. Your support always meant so much to me. Love all that your doing here and all the humpth that you have to do so much in your life. Such a driven person and so look up to you and the strength that you have to be such an amazing lady. Love your card today and to be honest I have never heard of this new challenge group that you are a part of. I am gonna go and check it out now. Love your card today and I have that same stamp. Love stampin up. Love the new look of your blog. So pretty, just like you. Take care sweetie and know that if I dont' always comment it isn't because I dont' think of you or pop in, just busy with life and trying to balance it all. Big Hugs.
