Yesterday I had a major migraine again and was really not doing much. After I had taken some meds I checked my e-mails and blogger updates and I saw that the Stampin' Sisters in Christ had challenge # 11 up so I've decided to go and check it out. This week they are using Deuteronomy 31:8 as their inspiration. To find out more head on over to their site SSCC#11 and get the details. Since I did not want to take a chance yesterday, for those that deal with migraines, y'all know how it is, right? I took some time this morning and made a card for this challenge. I knew I did not have the inspiration scripture, but I have a real appropriate stamp from Verve, Hebrews 11:1 which reads: "Faith is the Substance of things hoped for, the Evidence of things NOT SEEN!!! " So guess what, yep, I used it. The challenge also speaks of creating something when GOD is unseen, so I was sold on this stamp. What could have been better? On this card I made I used some paper from a pad I ordered a while back and it is from Crafty Secrets. This was my first time using their papers and I must say that I am really happy with this pad which is called EARTH. I also got to use my new Nesties Labels 8, yeah, I know I am a bit late, but I had to wait a while to get them ;D.
All right, here it is
Paper: PTI Rustic Cream, SU Chocolate Chip, DP from the Earth Collection of Crafty Secrets
Stamp: Verve Hebrews 11:1
Ink: SU Close to Cocoa, Chalk Box Creamy Brown, Toffee
Accessories: Nesties Labels 8, Satin ribbon, Prima Fairy Tale Collection mini roses in a peach color (DP has some of that color in it ;D), Recollections half pearls, foam tape, glue dots
So, what do you think? I really like the way this card came out. I just hope that it will do the job and encourage someone.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you have a minute I'd like to know what you think.
Last week I was a little down as several people have unsubscribed from my Blog. One person actually put as a reason "too many updates" another "content not relevant anymore" and that kind of got to me. I have no idea why it got to me the way it did, but I was really hurt. I thank each and every one of you that do take the time to leave me some love as it truly does make my day!!! Sorry, but I had to share this. It was really eaten me up and maybe I should make a card for myself to cheer me up ;D.
Thanks for letting me vent.
