Crafters of Faith - January

It is a brand new year.  The year 2012 just seemed to whirl by to me.  I like how we choose a day to create new goals, adjust current goals, or just plain scrap the past goals and start anew!

A plus from this whirling by past year, is that I was invited to be a part of the Crafters of Faith group on SCS.   Just like goals, I have enjoyed meeting new friends, am getting to know current friends better and hopefully we won't have to scrap anyone and start anew!  LOL 

I had a goal last year to read through the Bible in a daily format, which I was able to do.  For this year, I have a goal to read through the Bible chronologically in a daily format. 

::  Psalm 119:105 NIV  ::  Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.  ::

We had a crafting challenge from Sharon this month.   We needed to create a card with old and new stash and with a new technique that we have never used.    Oh where to start, I have so much I have not done before!

I went right to the Tutorial portion of SCS.  The first technique listed is something I have never done - yep, I'll do that one!  Triple Stamping.   Okay, old and new stash.  The old part is easy.  The new, not so much!   I am in my 'use what'cha got phase' so not a whole lotta new around here.   The newest thing I had available to use is a stamp set from My Mind's Eye.  That posed it's own issues!   I was envisioning a large stamp to use on the Triple Stamping technique.   I ended up old school stamping with the set in different Memento ink colors.  I used some scrap papers to pull the colors together.  I used a piece of one of my favorite fatty ribbons.  Then finished with some fatty rhinestones I received as a gift.  That would make it a double fatty! 

This time when I was finished the card just said listen to this!   I am still singing it. 


While this project took a turn and turned out totally different than I had envisioned, I do hope that I met the challenge for, Sharon.   Please be sure and stop by to see what the other Crafters of Faith have created.  Their blogs are listed on the right sidebar.

Have a great day!
