Crafters of Faith - October

While I am sure that there are pumpkins and colored leaves on every one's mind this time of year, the Crafters of Faith have worked on their monthly challenge involving music. 

Liz, is our hostess for the month of October.  She challenged us to use a verse from Jonah and to create a card with a musical image.  Oh.  I had better start searching early, as I could not think of many images off hand that would work for the challenge! 

"But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you.  What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’ ”
~Jonah 2:9 NIV

Low and behold, I found an image in my digital file that I received from Create With TLC.   It took a little bit to color, simply to decipher the line art. 

Once I had the image colored, it just screamed the need for some 'grandma paper'.   Yep, April, I found the Mac Daddy of 'grandma paper' in my stash.  I could not tell you where it came from, because I can hardly believe I actually had it!!!   I also had a piece of sheet music that I cut a bit of and used under the ribbon.  

Ssssh, don't tell anyone, but I like to listen to classical music.  Especially, when I am working on the computer.  My Pandora channel 'Classic Solo Piano Radio' gets a workout!   When I wanna get a little more upbeat, I listen to this.  What could be better, girls who rock, my fave Zepplin mixed with classical!

Please visit the other Crafters of Faith to see their creations.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.  Thanks, for stopping by!

WOW! This is gorgeous, Tami! Love the image - but you're right... it probably did take quite a while to color with all those details. And what fun musical paper.

hmmmmmmmmm.... Classical? Well, that doesn't surprise me in the least. You're a classic, my friend!
