COF September Blog 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! If you are just visiting and would like to hop with us, welcome! If you hopping along already, you should have arrived from Jackie's blog over at Kreatewithme2.

This month, our hostess is Carol over at billsfavoritestamper.blogspot.com/  She gave us a wonderful Harvest challenge and here is what she asked us to create: "I love FALL, the colors and the smells! I would like to propose that we make a card with fall colors, it should include fruits and vegetables to remind us of the harvest. When my kids were small, I canned peaches and pears, made pickles and such. So much fun to open those jars in the dead of winter! I am looking so forward to the fall festival of Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). To Biblical historians, this is the actual time of Christ's Birth and many people believe this will also be the season of HIS return. Blessings All!"

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







My jar stamp & God Loves you are both from Inkadinkado , spellbinders Lattice Borderabilities Petite  to make the lid for my jar ,Assorted Fresh Fruit from spellbinders for my Apples, Spellbinders S-4-265 shapeabilties Cross Collection Die template for my cross, for my border on top I used
spellbinders Big Scalloped Border Petites and my tag is  Labels Ten also from spellbinders. My paper is from DCWV and I cut some paper to put in the jar to look like homemade applesause. Yum Yum I remember making this as a kid with my grandmother.

From here, continuing hopping to Sharon over at ScrappingMum 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 Sandcastle Stamper the last stop on the hop!

Thank you for stopping by today! In this glorious season of Fall, and the wonders of the earth changing to gorgeous colors .... in a time of gratitude and thanksgiving ... we wish many blessings for you!
