Thinking of you
bird, Christian, fence, friend, owl, sitting, thinking of you
Clear Dollar Stamps is sponsoring the challenge this week at Twist of Faith Card Challenge so they let me play along as a guest!! Thank you ladies!! I had so much fun making this card and I even used my brand new fence punch! I even used one of the newer stamps Hoot Hoots that I hadn’t had a chance to play with yet! Since I used the owl image I was able to play along with 2 Sisters Challenge Blog which challenged us to use “Things with Wings”. I used the sketch from Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Challenge #84.
I love that Twist of Faith Card Challenge is a Christian Challenge that bases the challenges on scripture. I did not add a scripture to the card yet because I usually do that depending on who I’m sending it to. I try to pray and send the scripture that God wants in the card.
I hope you will join along and play with the ladies at Twist of Faith Card Challenge and you just might win a $15 gift voucher at Clear Dollar Stamps.

Yep, it’s the 3rd Friday so time for another challenge at Clearly iStamp. The challenge was to see some fall themed projects! Which was perfect because I was needing to do a fall card for Card Class at my church tonight. So this is one of the cards they will make! I used The Deconstructed Sketch #60 as inspiration for the card.

embossing, embossing resist, flowers, heat embossing, rainbow, thank you
I have card class tomorrow night at my church and I have NONE of the cards ready. I took today off in hopes to get some done but ended up having to go into work for a couple hours this morning so that shot the whole morning. After lunch got into my craft room and started looking at my stamps for ideals. I found this thank you stamp and remembered that the Sept Card Challenge on Scrapbook.com had a technique of embossing resist so I tried it. I love how it came out and was so easy. Not sure why I’m afraid of sponging backgrounds but it is something I NEVER do! I thought the Card Positioning Systems Sketch #283 was perfect for this. Not sure if we will make it for card class that will depend on if anything else comes to mind!

For hopping along with us One lucky winner will receive a $25 Clear Dollar Stamps gift certificate for digital images! The Winner will be randomly chosen from comments received on a DT member’s blog. The winner will be announced on my Blog and the CDS blog Thursday, September 20, 2012.
Today is Monthly Blog Hop for September at Clearly iStamp. The challenge this month was “ABC or 123” It’s not a “back to school” theme literally. Instead, it’s more of a recipe – use items on your card that each start with an A, a B, and a C, OR use 1of something, two of something AND three of something. Of course I had to clarify and yes we were only allowed to use “ABC or 123” in order but you could have more stuff on there if you wanted. I wasn’t able to play the last few months because life has just swamped me and I was trying to cut what I could to keep my sanity. Well, I had to play this month I was missing everyone. So here is my “A – Acorn, B- Brown, C – Circle” Card:
Of course this is not what I started out to make! I had planned on enlarge the acorns from the Autumn Critter Color Digital Stamp and making that the card but that just didn’t work out for me. So after fiddling with it this is what I ended up with! I love it! I love how challenges push you and expand your creativity. Trust me trying to fit the ABC or 123 into a card will stretch your creativity! I used the sketch provided on Scrapbook.com challenge – September Card Challenge.
Your next stop on the hop is Angela’s blog – Just Monkeying Around.
