For Every Season


Good Thursday Morning to you all.  Today, I am trying out two new challenge blogs.  I learned of both of them from my very special friend Nancy over at her blog, The Nickel Nook.  She is so talented and I love to stop by her blog and see what she is up to.  Heard they had snow at her home yesterday! 

Anyway, the two challenges are: A Die for a Sketch and Twist of Faith.  Of course my layout came from the sketch, but add the name in and with the sketch you have to use a die.  And, my title for today's post came from the Twist of Faith's challenge this week which is "For every Season."  The season I chose was fall as I love the colors of fall and I love this verse which lets us know "to everything... there is a season, a time for every purpose.."  If we trust the Lord everything is set into place for us and it is to work out for our good if we love Him!  The key word is trust as their may be times we don't feel as though it is for our good.  But God knows what the future holds, so there is no need for me to worry about it.  I just trust in God!  And using this verse, I am also adding the challenge over at Our Daily Bread Designs Blog  which is to use a verse and theme is fall!

Now back to the card and a side view of the card!


  Such and easy card to make.  I stamped the verse from the ODBD stamp set, Scripture Collection 1, onto SU Very Vanilla card stock with SU Early Espresso ink. I cut it out with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals Die, sponged the edges and with a paper piercer, pierced each scallop.  I adhered it to the SU Designer Paper, Spice Cake with stampin' dimensionals.  I used the stamp set by Stampin' Up! for the leaves called French Foliage, stamped them on SU Very Vanilla card stock in More Mustard, cut them out and adhered them to the card with stampin' dimensionals right above the Scallop Oval.  Attached this to SU More Mustard card stock cut 4 1/4 X 8 1/2 and then folded to make a 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 square card.  How easy is that?

Here is a photo showing the dimension!


Hope you enjoyed your stop by my blog today and please check out these two challenges as they are wonderful challenges.
