Hello Delightful friends and family!
We are having a heat wave this week! I can't believe it was as warm and balmy as it was and it's late October! I've been working on a couple of classes for December at Scrapper's Edge our local scrapbook store and of course they are Christmas cards but it feels like I should make a beach scene instead of a snow scene! But looking at the leaves on the trees outside bring me back to reality for they are beautifully changing colors and falling on the ground. The changing seasons most definitely shout out the glory of God.
Today I have a card to share for Word Art Wednesday - Hope you will play along with us and link your project at the challenge blog. We have sponsors and prizes so be sure and check us out HERE. You can link up to 5 new projects! This challenge is Anything Goes - Family Friendly.
I've pulled out my all time favorite Unity Stamp Co. pumpkin stamps. It's probably retired but I just love it and pull it out every fall season. I've used a mix of regular Distress Inks with Oxide Distress inks on both watercolor paper and also on 80 lb Neenah bright white. I fussy cut out the leaves and pumpkins after coloring them and then popped up the smallest, added hemp cording and a button.
This Scripture Art this week is from 1 Timothy 1:12 and this card with Scripture would be ideal to give to someone in ministry (especially a pastor since it's Pastor Appreciation Month). I know from experience how important it is to have an encouraging word from time to time, especially when we are right in the midst of the spiritual battle that we face when in the ministry. It is so important to persevere and remain faithful, the Lord gives us the strength and truly does enable us to do the work He has called us to do. My prayer is that when I see my Savior face to face that He will say "well done, good and faithful servant."
But I count my life of no value to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God's grace. Acts 20:24
Have a blessed week and thanks for visiting!
