Crafters of Faith - February

Welcome to the Crafters of Faith on SCS February posting.   I was able to put out a theme for this months challenge!  

I asked the girls to create a card with the following criteria.  Hey, you might want to try the challenge out for yourself!

I have a crafting tool that I just had to have and have hardly used. Does that sound remotely familiar?! I think you all may have the same tool in your arsenal. I would like you to drag out your scoring tool. Scor-Pal mini, biggie, Martha mini, biggie or if you do not have one of those, I am sure that you may have a scoring blade on your paper cutter. SCORE!!! It would be fun to see how you all incorporate scoring onto your card. You know I am into 'use what'cha got', so if you do not have a scoring tool of any sort, please create without this element. Oh and I do not mean just a score to fold your card base in half! LOL

While it is a 'lovely' month February, let's create a card that is not Valentine's themed. That being said, it is the second part of this challenge. Let's not use Valentine theme, red, pink or white colors anywhere on our cards. That includes the paper you stamp your image on....*gasp*!

For our third element, how about we place both an image and a sentiment on the front of the card.

So, I set to work on my own card.    Sssshhhh, I have a secret.  No one can know!   You know that little used crafting tool I challenged everyone to use, the scoring one?!  I forgot!!!   I am such a tool!!!  I totally forgot until I was finished, so I fished out some scraps from the trash.  I only had scraps, because I am using scrap papers.  I put a tiny score in the paper and added the pieces.  There was so much more opportunity to score, if I had not glued everything down already!!!

I so tried taking the photo to represent the actual colors of this card.  Different light, different days, alas to this result.  In person, the colors are a great deep burgundy, peach and a teal type of green.  This goes to show you that even cards can have bad picture days.  Even after the re-takes {think school pictures of the past}!  All this picture and school days talk made me think I needed to listen to this!

Please be sure and check out the rest of the COF cards.  The blog links are on the right sidebar.  I cannot wait to see what the girls have thought up!
Thanks, for stopping by!

You crack me up!! I love your card, and the colors really look splendid, even though you aren't happy with the photo! Aren't you clever sneaking in a bit of scoring after all is said & done. Thanks for such a fantastic challenge this time! I had a blast with it.

You are such a clever girl! Love how you sneaked in your scoring. Beautiful colors and sentiment - thanks for a great challenge!

Hugs and blessings,

You always bring a smile to my face!

What a beauty you created! Even with having to 'sneak' in a bit of scoring!

Tami--your posts always bring a smile to my face--and many times a laugh out loud!

Your first card is so pretty--love the colors and that image is so cute!

And--you are the clever one to add the scoring AFTER your card is completed--I should have thought of that!

You did an outstanding job on both of the challenges!

I love your card... so rich in color and beautiful.

I giggled when I read about you forgetting to score - on your own challenge. Cracked me up!!!

Tami, you got that scoring in the card after all! And it looks lovely, too! (But wait, is that red and pink I see on that card? LOL!) Great job, my friend!

Beautiful! Way to sneak in the score lines too! You go girl! Very clever of you! :)

Tami! Your card is adorable and thank you for the really fun challenge this month. Although I have to razz you...no red, pink or white?? That was really hard! The more I looked through my stash for papers, the more it seemed I had nothing BUT those colors :)
And thank you for getting me to dust off my Scor-pal. I love how you snuck in your scoring! It was a really great touch. Big Hugs and happy weekend to you, Sweetie! ♥kadie
