Hi friends and a Happy Halloweento all of those that are celebrating!
It's also the 31st of the month, and that means the Crafters of Faith
post our monthly cards with a chosen theme.
This month, our sister in Christ, Liz, gave us a joyous theme of song!
I absolutely love music and have loved christian, gospel music every since I was a little girl. I used to drive my mom batty running around singing
"I've Got the Joy In My Heart" over and over at the top of my lungs :)
I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart!
Down in my heart!
Down in my heart!
I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart ..
Down in my heart to stay!
Okay, you can unplug your ears now! LOL!
Sweet Liz gave us this scripture this month for our challenge:
The scripture for my challenge is:
"But I, with a song of thanksgiving, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good, salvation comes from the Lord." Jonah 2:9
And here is her challenge theme:
I love music and a "song of thanksgiving" surely pleases the Lord. Never does He speak that the songs of our hearts need to be perfectly performed to be a joyful sound to Him. So, think of some ways you can make a joyful sound to the Lord your God. The challenge this month will be to use a musical instrument image, musical score paper, musical note brads, etc. Whatever you have in your stash that is of the musical nature!
And my card!
My 3 daughters were/are at a High School for Performing Arts
and were/are part of a vocal choir.
My dd16 auditions for many plays and Operas and God has blessed her
with a truly angelic voice :) I had her in mind when creating a card,
which finally came together after 3 attempts, lots of cardstock and dsp in the trash and a few images later!
|close up of the sentiment :)|
I went with a wonderful dancing girl stamp, sent free in the mail from
Inkadinkado in their giveaway a couple of years ago. They were so generously giving away thousands of stamps - all you had to do is send in an email,
and they sent 3 wooden stamps to you, completely free!
I received this one among my trio and until this year, it has not seen ink
- another LINY card and USE EVERY STAMP challenge card :)
For the musical part, I added a small scrap of music paper behind the images
and the inside is stamped with a sentiment from SNSS stamps.
It is a verse from the book of Isaiah 12:5
"Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things;
this is known in all the earth."
Be sure to stop in and see what the rest of the Crafters of Faith
created with Liz's wonderful theme!
You can find them listed in my blog sidebar.
I'm off to a field trip with my son today
and he is SUPER excited about wandering through our neighborhood
to see the spooky houses, wear his GI Joe "Snake Eyes" costume
and pass our candy to the little ones that show up to our door :)
Big Hugs, Bigger Blessings!
