Warm Wishes: Galatians 6:9

Happy Sunday! This means that Stampin' Sisters in Christ has another challenge based on scripture for you! It is my understanding that many parts of this country is experiencing some fall-like temperatures - not here in Florida though. Making a fall card was just what I needed to get into the season - in spirit if not in temps!

This week our creative leader, Kris, is the challenge hostess and the verse she chose is from Galatians 6:9. Be sure to read her devotion for this week over on SSIC.
"So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up."
I do enough! I have had this thought when they ask for volunteers at church to teach a class or head up a committee or whatever. I have a conversation with myself that basically clicks off all that I already do at the church and why I think that is enough. I mean really, what about those people over there - they are not nearly as busy as I am! And that one there, I know that for a fact that they are recently retired so they should have plenty of time! Yes, I do that; and yes, I know that I should not! When I know that God, through His people, is calling me I should never get caught up in the web of I have done or do enough.

The challenge this week is; Make a Harvest card or Fall/Autumn

I created the background of this card using the Fall Foliage stamp set from GKD. I just stamped the leaves with distress inks and stamped right on some ivory cs. Then I sponges some green around the edges and lightly on the stamped images. I really did like how that turned out. The leaves are Spellbinder dies and the ribbon came off of a gift I had received. I scored a couple of lines on the side and put some pearls in between. I made this card for a co-worker who suffered a heart attack this week and had a quad bypass done yesterday. She is certainly in my prayers. 

This week our sponsor is Sweet n' Sassy. You will receive 3 digi images of your choice.

Don't forget to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week.

Miesje - This is a beautiful card with wonderful details. You did such a nice job! And you thoughts on the verse made me smile. I've had the same conversation with myself. :) Someone once said to me (when she was asking me to do something) "if you need something done, ask a busy person." ???? she explained that people that are busy tend to be organized and know how to get things done. So, they will most likely get the thing done for you I shouldn't look so busy to people ;)
Blessings to you this week!
