Crafters of Faith - October

Hello Everyone!

The Crafters of Faith group on SCS is posting their October challenge.   Sharon, posed a great challenge for this month as our hostess.

Our challenge is to create a card that is in theme with Thanksgiving or a thank you card.  I chose to work on a thank you card.  Sharon loves autumn, so I thought that I would keep in theme with using autumn colors.  They are some of my favorite colors as well.

I found some pretty DP that had 'thankful' wording on it.  I coupled it with a sentiment from a Stampin' UP! set, circa older than dirt!   The sentiment was all in a straight line, so I stamped each word separately to make it a wee bit more the size and shape I was looking for.

We all have so much to be thankful for.  Take a minute and think of what you are thankful for.  Try sharing with just one person today what they do to make you thankful.   Careful!  It might just become a habit!  ;)

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.   ~Psalm 107:1

Dueling Darlings - October

It is time to duel again!  It is the 15th and we are ready to go here with the Dueling Darlings from SCS. Welcome!

We have a bit of a different duel this month.  Melina, who is on the Dazzler team, is the hostess for both the Divas and Dazzlers. 

Melina, issued a challenge theme for each team.  The theme of our respective challenge(s) are in thought of our team leaders, Jeanette and Kelly.   The Diva's team leader Kelly, who loves animals and buttons.  That is our theme this round, Kelly, animals and buttons! We are to use an animal and a button on our card. 

I went on the hunt through my images from past image swaps, in search of 'something out of the box'.  I think I may have succeeded!   LOL  This cute little Penny Black image is called Bikini.  She is lovin' on some Popsicle, with a cute handbag.  Perfect!   The sentiment is from Create With TLC.

I tried to make my card in the footsteps of, Kelly.   The theme is for her warm and beachy climate.  The papers....well, I think she will like them as they were gifted to me from her!   I tried for bright colors, which is a bit out of my element.  I used lots of layers, flowers, buttons and bakers twine.  All things that Kelly works so well with.

I love the fact that Kelly always is thinking of others.  She makes our Diva team a pleasure to be on.  I am thankful to have her as a friend.  I hope she likes the piggy!!!!

Please be sure to see what the other girls have created.  Their blog links are on the right side bar under Dueling Darlings.

Have a great day!

Unidentified Image Swap - October

Our SCS group had the greatest image to work with for this round of the Unidentified Image Swap.  I am glad that you could stop by to take a peek!

Terry, was our hostess this round.   She gifted us an image from My Favorite Things, a la modes Miss You a Latte.  Isn't she just the cutest?!

Well you know the first thing I though of when I saw the image was Starbucks!  I had to do some collecting of the coffee sleeves. 

Whenever I think of Starbucks, it reminds me of the Dave Matthews Band.  Much to my liking the free iTunes song of the week at Starbucks on my last sleeve collection was guess who...yeppers, Dave!  Here is one of my favorite DMB songs.  Hey, anyone who wants to teach their kids to fly is okay in my book - oh and I like the mini jazzy guitar solo too!  LOL

Have a good day and maybe go get a bux!!!
