Crafter's of Faith September Hop

Welcome to the first Crafters of Faith Blog Hop! We are so blessed to have you stop by and celebrate the beauty of AUTUMN with us! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together! I am the first stop for our little hop.   Please follow along and take a peek at the other gals creations.

September is my hostess month and I wanted to convey my love for FALL.  The ladies were asked to create a card or scrapbook page that included fall colors, fruits and vegetables that would remind us of harvest.  The fall festival of Sukkoth is just around the corner.  The "Feast of Tabernacles", to many Biblical historians is the actual time of Christ's Birth and manly people believe this will also be the season of HIS return. 

To celebrate in this glorious season upon us, here is the card I created for you!

All items used are from Stampin' Up!, with the exception of the Dew Drops (Robin's Nest) and the sentiment. 

From here, continuing hopping to Carolina's  blog to see what Autumn splendor she has waiting for you! We also have a special little giveaway for one lucky hopper today and you can find that on Kelly's blog - the last stop on the hop! 

Thank you for taking time to share in our hop today.  Be blessed!

Crafter's of Faith August Challenge

Happy last day of August!  Since it is the last day of the month, the Crafter's of Faith girls will all post their challenge cards .  Please check my sidebar for links to all the other beautiful creations from this group.
Liz W is our hostess this month and she asked us to create a card using our birthstone color.  My birthday is in July, that means "RUBY".  My card is made using all Stampin' Up! products.  The stamp set is "Upsy Daisy", a classic, go to set for me.  You just can't go wrong with it.  Life has been pretty busy this month since hubby and I are transitioning into the management position here at our RV park.  Upsy Daisy pulled me through.......

A pretty, easy straight forward card, pretty useable and practical.  Thank you for popping in, I'm off to look at the other girls' creations, please join me.....Have a happy day!

Baby Boy Card

HAPPY TUESDAY! My card today is for the former manager of the RV park here. She and her husband are expecting a baby boy any day now.  It has been so HOT, she is so anxious!!  I anxious for her too.  Love to hold babies, I'm hoping I will get the opportunity to hold the little guy before they move.

Cardstock is from Stampin' UP!  Whisper White and Not Quite Navy (I think).  The image is one I picked up at Big Lots a long time ago.  DSP is from a Debbie Mumm pack a few years ago. Ribbon is SU also.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a wonderful day!!

Alyah's Birthday

My goodness, it has been so long since I have posted.  Life has been SO busy, busy.  Fall is coming, so things should slow down a bit.  Hubby and I are now managing an RV park full time.  The transition has taken a big bite out of my day!  I'm getting a bit faster at my daily duties and will be moving into a bigger space with extra room for crafting soon. 

Today's card is one I made for my granddaughter, Alyah's 7th Birthday.  She is wild about horses these days (no pun intended, snicker, snicker!).  She also is a lover of purple and pink.  She was quite happy with her card and gift when it arrived in England.
The image I used is Gift Horse digi, by Whimsy Stamps.  Cardstock and DSP are from Stampin' UP! as well as the flower punch.  I colored this happy guy with koh-i-noor pencils and then blended them.  There is a touch of sparkle around the bridle and the saddle, but hard to see in this feeble example of photography.....

Wishing you all a bright, blessed day!  Thank you for stopping by!

Good Tuesday morning!  Since today is the last day of the month, that means it is time for the Crafter's of Faith!  This month our fearless leader Kelly,sent us each a darling little kit with which to build our card.   The image is from CC Designs and is called Butterfly Nora.  She is a cutie, don't you think! I colored her with koh-i-noor pencils and blended with mineral spirits. (I just love those pencils.)  DSP by Colorbok.  I loved the colors in my little kit!  I added a bit of glitter glue to Nora's little wings, Prima flowers compliment the DSP colors.  

Please take time to pop in on the other girls from the Crafter's of Faith group.  You will find their names on my sidebar.  We are a talented group of ladies!!  Have a wonder filled day!! Blessings!

Happy Friday in blogland!  Life has been mighty busy and full these last few weeks.  I finally got a bit of time to play with paper.  My photo was taken outside in the late afternoon, I seem to be in between thunderstorms this week. 
Pretty simple, straight-forward card.  I embossed glossy paper with several different folders, then punched them with a square punch, then rounded the  corners.  The lavender heart was cut free-hand and embossed also.  It is difficult to see the "cherish" that is stamped on glossy and cut with a nestie.  Ribbon is Stampin'Up!, as well as the cardstock I used.  Rhinestones are from Craft Warehouse $1 bin.

Have a wonderful weekend!  Blessings!

Happy Monday, All!  I managed to get a bit of stamping done this past weekend.  It felt pretty good!  Today's card is a simple one, I used Upsy Daisy from SU, stamped in Tuxedo Black from Memento. The pattern paper I used is from DCWV, all other cardstock and the butterfly are also from Stampin' Up!     Simple, simple card. You can never have too many Thank You cards on hand.

Have a wonderful day!
