Bible Verse Thursday and Taylored Expressions Sketch

Morning! Just a quick post I've got some training for the church website this morning then off to Costco to purchase all the food for the Thanksgiving Community Dinner tomorrow(we feed about 200), then pick up the sample of the new church T-shirt for a youth fundraiser, then finish up the shoeboxes for the Samaritan Purse outreach and get them delivered. (whew!!) It is a busy day and tonight we have our mid-week Bible Study!

But first It's Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at CHRISTIAN PAPER CRAFTS and Angella has a great challenge for you here is what she says:
"Happy Thursday, everyone!!! Only one more week until Thanksgiving!!! Since we will not be having a challenge on Thanksgiving, I thought we could incorporate the same gratitude spirit this week instead. For this week's Bible Verse Thursday Challenge, use ANY verse which speaks of gratitude or thankfulness. Other than the gratitude theme, this challenge is completely open.....any colors or images.....let's see how creative you can be!!! Of course, if you'd like to make a Thanksgiving card, by all!!Please use Keyword BVT32 when uploading to our gallery....come back to this thread and post a link when you have a sec. If uploading to any additional on-line galleries, please use the Keyword CPC-BVT32. There are no time limits and no challenge police! Just have fun and let our Lord be glorified!!! Have a blessed day!! "
Here is my sample for the challenge which incorporated my take on last Fridays sketch from Taylored Expressions (TESC91):


here's a close up (duh!)

Recipe: Paper: Bella Blvd and Bazzill Cardstock; Stamps: Inkadinkadoo; Ink: Distress Ink, antique linen and Archival Ink, coffee; Prismacolor pencil, dk green; Embellishments: ribbon, American Crafts; pearls, Creative Charms; Tools: Scallop oval punch, Marvy Uchida; Cuttlebug for embossing not sure the name of the folder (sorry) Technique: dry embossing, ink blending, piercing. My handwriting for the Scripture 'cause I just don't have very many stamps with Bible verses and my ink is gone in my printer (woe is me!) I forgot to take a pic on the inside but there is a nice sentiment "blessing" on the inside.

Here is another card featuring the same sketch:


This card is much closer to the sketch from Taylored Expressions than the above Thanksgiving card.

another close-up!

My recipe: Paper: Basic Grey and Bazzill cardstock; Stamp: Uptown Rubber Stamps; Ink:Archival Ink (Ranger) Coffee; Prismacolor pencil (hearts), Process Red; Embellishments: buttons, BoBunny; ribbon, American Crafts; Embroidery floss, DMC; Tools: Scallop Circle punch, Marvy Uchida; Cuttlebug, Snowflake folder.
Okay I'm off and running and I hope you all have a super excellent Christ-centered day!!! God bless.

  1. Sooo PRETTY! LOve them both! I especially love the sketch with the green and brown layers and cuttlebugged even. Loving the buttons and pears and ric rac. I just think the tied buttons and ricrac make cards look extra homemade and special. Cozy feeling :) Great job! x
