Challenges


This was made for SNS' DT Monday challenge to use Scripture. Once again I took apart a card that was started at a swap and now that I changed it, I'm not so sure it is any better but it certainly has more detail with adding the Basic Grey Two Scoops dsp. The stamp is from SU Occasions Mini called Soft Summer. The card design was actually supposed to look like the example in the catty, but you know me, I had to change it!! I made mine into a Mother's Day card with a Bible verse, both from SNSS Special Women and Rejoice in the Lord. The ribbon came with the basic card supplies and i added the K&CO. jewels to pick up the deeper shades. Ink used is SU Rose Red for the words and Regal Rose for the rest. This card also fits the criteria to list it on the new Christian Paper Crafts Magazine site. If you haven't been over to see it, you really should. This site glorifies the Lord through creativity, sharing, praying and joy of Christian Crafters. A link can be found on my side bar.

The criteria for this card is from SCS's Ways to Use challenge this week to make a white card. I chose the CB Textile folder to emboss the front, added Prima Hydrangea flowers in pale shades with SU pink rhinestone brad centers. The ribbon is from Michael's, Marvy scallop punches, BG paper, SU Whisper White cs & Regal Rose ink. The words are from SNSS Special Women and True Friend. The sketch is from Cupcake Craft Challenges also on my side bar, another fun challenge for you to try.
I'll probably make a few more Mother's Day cards to send to some very dear friends. My mother is at home with the Lord and never saw any of my cards as she passed away before I began this wonderful hobby, but I know she would have cherished them as she did all the cards I sent! We had a very special relationship and she was a wonderful Christian woman who shared her faith daily. Distance kept us from seeing each other as often as we would have liked so we talked every day and did so until the day she went home to be with the Lord. I was able to get there and hold her hand as she went home, I know she heard my voice.
