Crafters of Faith Blog Group

Hi there.   (scroll down to enter Heartfelt Creations hop)


Today I have posted a card based on the challenge to our Faith Based Blogging Group by Jackie. Her challenge:
We all know that February is the month of LOVE so my challenge is for you to create something with LOVE in mind.....with a bit of a twist 
Usually, the cards made during this month are all red, pink & white but I want you all thinking outside the box:
I want you to use NON TRADITIONAL colors to create your project
Your creation must be made with NATURE as the main theme....flowers, trees, mountains, water---you get the idea
Finally, I want to see at least 1 circle shape on your creation".....

whew!  i had a month to think on this and here's what I came up with...
The Couple image is from Stampin Up but I have given away this set and don't remember its name and I don't remember which mountain stamp I used (sorry) i had stamped and masked this image a long time ago...colored with Prisma pencils...my "circle" is the pearls.
Had our beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in mind (they are called Blue because of their beautiful blue color from a distance...they aren't really blue LOL) Used a CB folder and the recessed frame image technique with Spellbinders Deckled Rectangles Large and small standard rectangles.

Hope you get time to visit the rest of our group and see what they came up with (-:


hugs and blessings,

The blues and greens of nature are so relaxing and I love this scene of calmness. Taking a moment to enjoy the beauty around us, and just to be still to listen to what God has to say to us makes for a great day!
