Hello Wednesday!

I did a post last week with these pictures, but just when I was done, my internet cut out and I lost everything. I was so mad and disgusted I logged off and didn't redo my post. I know I haven't posted in ages, but I have been busy. Mostly I have been working out with Meghan, doing Algebra II with John, getting Meghan ready for college, and doing housework (as little as possible). Oh, and we are still meeting on Thursday mornings for our Christian Biography group.

Anyways, I have two cards that I like well enough to post. The first one features a verse from one of my favorite passages of Scripture. The Scripture passage is Lamentations 3:19-35, and it is written by the prophet Jeremiah, who is called the weeping prophet. I got the idea for the layout of this card from Amy Schaeffer's blog Pickeled Paper Designs. To get the antique look, I sponged Close To Cocoa around the edges of the verse, the pink and the designer paper. I used a pink Copic Marker to color the Faux Pearls a pinkish hue, and I sewed around the outside edge using a beige thread.

Recipe: Stamps: Scriptures 1 by Daily Bread Designs. Paper: Pink Pirhouette, Close to Cocoa, PTI White, DP from Michael's craft. Ink: Close to Cocoa. Accessories: Nestabilities Labels 1, Martha Stewart border punch, sewing machine, 3/8" pink grosgrain ribbon, Faux Pearls.

This next card, took me forever to do. I know that it is fall/halloween colors, but I wanted to match the oranges in the designer paper. I like the card personally, but I didn't get a very enthusiastic response for it on Splitcoast Stampers.

Recipe: Stamps: Scripture Collection 1 by Daily Bread Designs. Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, PTI White, Basic Grey Amrosia DP. Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red. Accessories: Fiskars border & embossing punch, Spellbinders labels 4, black brads, sheer black ribbon.
