Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch

 The card features some fun autumn papers by Echo park and the super cute Pumpkin Face-off set by Paper Sweeties.  I am enjoying the beauty of this slightly cooler day by spending a little time with paper and ink.

Romans 10:15 for Word Art Wednesday

 This sweet scripture is perfect for Pastor Appreciation during the month of October. I am so grateful for our dear pastor!  He is an excellent teacher, handling the word of God with integrity.  He loves lost souls and the Body of Christ.  I so appreciate his kindness and love.  He is truly a good shepherd.  I pray you have a pastor and church home like ours!

This scripture is available for crafters to download at Word Art Wednesday.  Along with the scripture word art, you will find a meaningful devotion, some inspiration, a place to share your own art, and generous prizes to earn.

Psalm 16:1 for Word Art Wednesday


What a wonderful prayer:  Preserve me, O God, for in thee do I put my trust.  This verse echoes one of my favorite Psalms:  God will preserve us from all evil, He will preserve our souls, He will preserve our going out and our coming in ~ Psalm 121.  God's very character makes Him worthy of our trust in all things.

Please visit Word Art Wednesday to download this sweet scripture for your own use.  While you are visiting, take time to read Karen's devotion and take a look at the inspiration pieces.  There's always a great prize to win, too!

Birthday Bears --MFT Sketch

We are having a belated birthday celebration for someone special today, and MFT's sweet Birthday Bears set seemed perfect for the greeting.  The layout is a loose and flipped interpretation of the current MFT sketch.  

Have a blessed day,

Global Design Challenge: Fall

 I've been seeing the loveliest cards posted for the Global Design Challenge and have been looking forward to an opportunity to play along.  The current challenge theme is Fall, and I love creating with this set of images.  (Mine is a retired Verve set, but Julee has released a very similar set with Sweet-n-Sassy that can be found here.)  I blended, sprayed, and splattered soft shades of Distress Oxide inks and used the inked panel to stamp and cut the leaves.

Thanks for visiting,

Flower Bouquet with Love (Color Challenge)

'' failed to upload. Invalid response: RpcError

I recently ordered MFT's Flower Bouquet dies and am thrilled with them!  The die cut shapes have beautiful detailing and were such fun to cut from Bristol paper and to shade with a blending brush.  The current color challenge is a little different than my normal go-to colors, but I am happy with the soft look of the blended shades!

Peony Thanks

 I always enjoy watercoloring this pretty image from Reverse Confetti.  It was especially pleasant since the peony was for a card to express deep gratitude.
