Give Thanks

I am posting a few more of the cards I worked on this weekend. This stamp is from CTMH set Give Thanks. I again used cardstock from Basic Grey-Eerie collections. This scripture is the theme for the new blog by StampinSistersInChrist. I used MS to create the scripture passage using various fonts.

The card below was made using the Just Rite Stamper Autumn collection. The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

Our scripture from Sunday School this morning was found in Jonah 1:1-3 as we know Jonah ran from doing God's will and there was a cost of disobeying God. Obeying God sometimes requires a major adjustment in our lifestyles and we are prone to ignore the urging of the Holy Spirit. Even though Jonah rebelled he discovered that it did not disqualify him from being used by God. We can have comfort in knowing that God loves us and will lead us back to him when we make wrong choices. Have a great week.

A Season of Gratitude

I have been very busy creating some cards for fall. I want to start off by sharing this one using Close To My Heart stamps. I stamped everything on Copic paper and embossed the saying and and Horn of Plenty with clear embossing poweder. I used SU-artichoke ink and versa fine black ink pad. The paper behind the image is from the new Basic Grey line for fall called Errie. I love this new paper. I won a few sheets last week and so I wanted to start using it. The horn of plenty was colored in using Copic markers.

The next card I am going to share is using Just Rite stamps from their Autumn Blessings collection. I just love this collection. I will have another ready for tomorrow's post. Happy Stamping.
I am participating in a fun challenge by a new blog that started up recently called "StampinsistersinChrist. This weeks challenge was to post cards with a food or drink theme. I participated with the strawberry cards I had done earlier. If you would like to visit this site I have added a Blinky on the side bar for their website. The scripture for this challenge is found in John 6:35. "I am the bread of life....... more to come on this tomorrow.

God Bless and Have a Great Day!

Wedding Card-Carolina Blue

This card was made this weekend for our pastor's daughter's shower next week. Her colors were Carolina Blue and Brown. I have used StampinUp Bashful Blue cardstock for the base, CTMH Cocoa. The stamp I picked up at the Dollar Store. I colored in the small flowers with water color markers and then added clear glue to the top and diamond dust over the glue. Looks pretty good up close just doesn't show up well in the photograph.

Thought for the day: Now these three remain: Faith, Hope, and Love, But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

OK, I love strawberries and today's post has me craving the red lucious sweet fruit. When we lived in SC we had a friend that had a strawberry farm and each summer I would help them sell and pick strawberries.

This is July's release from Flourishes - Strawberries. The card base is on Chocolate brown layered with White cardstock, punched by Martha Stewart punch, one layer was embossed with the cuttlebug swiss dot folder. I used Spellbinders - Petite Circle and Scalloped Circle to mount the image.

Several weeks ago a few of my friends and I visited a stamp convention and discovered a company called Heartfelt Creations. They had a sample of their image of strawberries and I just had to have it. I've followed basically their sketch but used colors that I had.
All images are colored using the Copic markers.

Ok, do I have you drooling for strawberries. Note these are the first cards I have ever done sewing on. Wasn't that hard on my normal sewing machine, can't seem to get the little sewing machines to work as well.

Todays bible verse: At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11

Riding Bike - Angel by Me & Carrie Lou

This image is by Sara Kay. Doesn't this remind you of riding your bike when we were young. Frame is cut by nestabilities and colored with Copic Markers.

Today's image is by Me & Carrie Lou. I've had this stamp for ages and have always loved it. She has been colored in using Copic markers. I'll post the colors I used later today. I found this lovely paper at the Enchanted Cottage in Lewisville, NC.

The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. Psalm 3-23-24

Penney Black Patio & PSX

Today's card image is from Penney Black. I have used the flower soft product above the patio doors. This is one of 5 cards I made this past weekend.

This image is a PSX stamp. I used CTMH paper and a cuttlebug embossing folder at the bottom. This card stock is actually green even though the picture looks like it is a beige.
Check back later in the week for the rest of the cards made this week.

Romans 3:22 We are made right with God by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are.

Had a great weekend visiting family last week. We got home this afternoon and I thought I would add this wonderful new image from Sara Kay. Image is colored in using Copics and background was sponged on. I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss on the cardstock behind the Frame. This is a Spellbinders die cut frame. Flowers are from Michaels wedding section.
