Hello everyone! Whew.... I am exhausted from the trip and the amount of work required to move the kids, but all went well. We were very well organized and packed by the time the guys (my daughter's husband, and mine) got there to load. We loaded the largest Uhaul truck they make, plus the largest trailer they have, plus their truck, their car and my car all packed to the top.... and did it all in the pouring rain. We drove to TN on Sat in pouring rain. This was the most stressful part for me, because with firbromyalgia, driving long distances can be a killer, but God was gracious and I made it safely. The kids did not get the house they were trying for, so we put it all in storage until they can move into their house. Yes.... they did find another house and now are under contract so in a month, we have to do it again, but there won't be a long drive involved this time!!!
So... with that behind me, I had to make a card today before trying to catch up on housework and all the things I left behind.
This card was made for today's color challenge on SCS: Riding Hood Red, Kraft, and Summer Sun. I had received my Clear Dollar order the day I left, and was dying to use some, so even though a floral would have been easier in these colors, I used this wonderful stamp called "Roman Road". I have used the Roman Road often as a quick Scriptural walk through the process of Salvation offered to us through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
I stamped it in Archival Jet Black on Georgia Pacific White, over stamped the cross in RR, then sponged on a "sun" in Summer Sun Pastels, using a sponge dauber. I brought rays of yellow radiating out from the sun to the edges of the paper, then sponged yellow and then red around the edges. I mounted this on a layer of Kraft, then used this great DP from Memory Box. It is a perfect match for Kraft and Riding Hood Red, and I thought the little blobs of red looked like the drops of blood shed for me on Calvary's cross.
I used my Cuttlebug and die cut to cut the Red scroll and flowers. Added yellow centers and that was it. A simple card that I hope sends a strong message on the wonderful gift God gave us when He sent His Son to die for us.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I missed you all! Hugs to you!
