Hello friends! I hope you all have been doing well! My family went home yesterday afternoon and I should be getting my house back in order, but instead, since I have been battling a bug and have zero ambition, I decided to play in today's color challenge over on SCS, and this week's CPS268 sketch, which I flipped on it's side. When I saw the sketch I immediately thought of the Bicycle set, released June 1 at Our Daily Bread designs. For the circle elements of the sketch I used Spellbinder's Sprightly Sprocketts die, as well as classic circles. The little tag was stamped with a sentiment from Thank You Sentiments, and cut with a SU! punch. The card base is Gina K and the designer paper is My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline. The image was stamped with Memento Ink on Cryogen white and colored with Copics. I then added several shades of Flower Soft to the flowers in the basket and some grassy spots as well. The twine flower was my "attempt" to use twine in a creative way for the "dessert" option for the color challenge on SCS. Unfortunately I didn't realize the tag had moved a bit for the photo and the "You" of the You Bless Me sentiment got hidden. :( Anyway.... it was a fun and quick card.
This week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, Diane is the hostess, and she chose Isaiah 40:26 as her scripture.
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, and that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
Her challenge is to create a card that depicts any element of heaven-angels, music, clouds, sun, stars, blue, glitter, bling, etc. I have a cloud in my blue sky... it's a puffy white one... not a storm cloud! :)
Stop on over at the SSIC blog to read Diane's devotional. It will bless you for sure!
