Crafters of Faith: Thankful for .......

 Hi friends!

I've been playing 'catch up' with my card making 
as most of August and September 
went by at lightening speed! 

Thankfully, STAMPtember has continued into ARTober! :)


I fell head over heels IN LOVE with so many of the Simon Says Stamp
STAMPtember releases last mionth!
I was so excited to see so many of the reveals
and had to purchase a few of them, like this one from Mama Elephant.
It's called Snow Kittens and it's just. so. cute!

In September, for the Crafters of Faith card group,
Jeanette asked us to create a card based on the scripture John 1:3.
The challenge was include something on your card (or project) that you are especially thankful that God created. 

 I thought about being cheeky and making a coffee themed card, hee hee! 

 However, one thing I am absolutely sure that I am thankful for -
 the seasons, especially winter and Christmastime!
  Here is my card ↓


 I chose seasons as my theme.
I absolutely ADORE places where there are actual seasons ~
from gorgeous and breezy springs,
to hot and warm summers,
and snowy, cozy winter! 

Winter is my very VERY favorite season!

For this card, I used a white piece of card stock and 
did my favorite cardmaking technique - distress oxide-ing!  
I blended several shades of pink Ranger Distress Oxide inks
and added a die cut snowy border from glittery paper.
I cut/colored the images from the snow kittens set
and popped them up on foam from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
Finally, I stamped the matching sentiment from the set
with Momento Tuxedo black ink and created a
a very meowy Christmas card!

 I''ll enter my card into the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday challenge:  Christmas
and the SSSIGChallenge:  Favorite Technique.

Thanks for stopping by ~
wishing you a purr-fect day!

Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥
