Crafters of Faith challenge

Crafters Of Faith Febuary Challenge:

Today I have a post for our Crafters of Faith challenge our Hostess Jackie wanted us to create something with LOVE in mind.....with a bit of a twist we were to use NON TRADITIONAL colors at least 1 circle shape on our creation and have NATURE as the main theme. I hope this fits the bill.

I chose this light house over looking the water for me it is just so peaceful , I am always looking for cards to make for men , so I decided to go with browns , yellow , green and blue with some twine ,wire and some shells. I generate the words for sign on the computer "My light shines only for you" think I'll give to Hubby when he isn't excepting it.

Hope you all have a wonderful Day


Crafters of Faith

Footprints Prayer

Today our hostess was unable to be with us so were holding off on our scheduled card , We love you Jackie and miss you.

Today for our Crafters of Faith group I am posting this card. I need a card for a young man who needed some comfort as he goes though some rough times in life. I often look upon this Prayer when I want to let someone know how much they mean and that they are not alone in their journeys.
I made it simple because I did not want to take away from the prayer,
I used a brass stencil I had of some baby feet  to emboss to look like feet walking on the sand.
                 Remember we are never alone in our travels though life, God is always walking with us .

                                                    May you always know God's Love

 Can you tell I'm just loving this patchwork layout :) Thanks agian sam007 from scs .

 I decided to make my Grandmother a card she's 98 and has all the cards and creations I've  ever made her , she's the only one  left in my family, my dad passed away 24 years ago from a heart attack and my mom passed away 1 1/2 years ago from pancreatic cancer , she had breast cancer twice since she was 32 so I'm on a every 6 month check up .Everyday is a precious gift from God.

Just wanted to show Grandma how much I love her and Thank her for all the kindness  and Love she has shown me and my kids and now our little Renner . She welcomed into the world 2 Great Great grandbabies in 2011  Laren7 months  and Renner 5months . Love You Grandma.

Silly Monkey &Taggie

Happy Tuesday Everyone !!! I'm feeling good, I've made 2 cards in 24 hours ,I do pray that my Crafters Block is over  . I feel so blue when I can not craft:(

Here is a card I made for my grandson Renner to give to Carol the very nice lady from Church who made him the Taggie.

I cased Sam007 over on SCS she made a really cute card called Bundle of Joy, I knew when I saw her card I wanted to do the patchwork she did ,I also used her ideal for the border and the layering. So here  is a big shot out to Sam007 for sharing your card and giving me the inspiration to make this one.

I used my cricut that I'm just loving and wonder why I never got one before ,I guess it was because I was into rubber stamping and then the cuttlebug and sizzix big shot pro , I'm so Thankful my daughter saw this great machine and knew her Mom would love it. So Thanks Danyelle for telling your brothers Mom wanted this even though I didn't know I did :).

I used Create a Critter to make the Monkey and the banana's , I used MS punch for the border , I used pop dots on the Monkey.
Hope You all have a Blessed day and stay warm and safe if you got any snow.
Hugs ,
Here is the Taggie Carol made for Renner isn't it Precious !
