Hello and happy first week of Autumn to you all!
Summer's gone and you wouldn't know it by the heat wave we are feeling here in Northern California, but that is the norm for us. We call it Indian summer. Cool in the morning and very warm in the afternoon and early evening. Perfect weather if you ask me!!
I have a card to share for Word Art Wednesday. Our sponsor this week is Cas-ual Friday Stamps. Be sure and check out their blog HERE and be inspired!!
This time, I've used the Scripture art inside the card rather than on the front. So that's a little different for me. This stamp set I've used is called Friendship Blooms which is a collaboration between Gina K Designs and Hero Arts (celebrating their 45th anniversary!) I've stamped it on watercolor paper using Versamark and gold embossing powder. I've colored with my Koi water color set (Pocket Field Sketch Box). This set has some lovely sentiments and I love the fonts the artists have chosen for it! So pretty! I've trimmed out the paper using a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle die. The sentiment is also die cut using a Cottage Cutz cross stitched square die,
Here is a peek at the inside: Die cut using the LF stitched rectangle with a pretty piece of card stock, not sure of the color.
The Scripture from 1 Corinthians, written by Paul begins this first chapter with thanksgiving for this church, which is pretty amazing considering all the correction that had to take place. This is a really good example or pattern for us in leadership in the church to always remember to be encouraging even in the midst of correction. To be able to see the grace of God at work in this congregation is a real blessing to Paul and he thanks the Lord for their strong points as he corrects their carnality later on in this letter. He will go on to give thanks to God who gives them the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ towards the end of the letter and reminds the Corinthians that they are beloved and reminds them to be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that their labor of love was not in vain in the Lord. (paraphrased by me 😆) This is a good word for us as well. I have a friend that will be getting this card and I pray it will be a blessed encouragement to her when she reads the inside verse. I hope you are encouraged too!
Thanks for visiting!!
