Crafters of Faith September Challenge

Hi everyone!!!

To God who gives our daily bread
A thankful song we raise,
And pray that he who sends us food
May fill our hearts with praise.
Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)

Welcome to the first  *Crafters of Faith* Blog Hop!  We are so blessed to have you stop by and celebrate the beauty of AUTUMN with us!  The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!   If you are just visiting and would like to hop with us, welcome!  If you hopping along already, you should have arrived from Carol's blog.

This month, our hostess is Carol S!  She gave us a wonderful Harvest challenge and here is what she asked us to create: "I love FALL, the colors and the smells! I would like to propose that we make a card with fall colors, it should include fruits and vegetables to remind us of the harvest. When my kids were small, I canned peaches and pears, made pickles and such. So much fun to open those jars in the dead of winter! I am looking so forward to the fall festival of Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). To Biblical historians, this is the actual time of Christ's Birth and many people believe this will also be the season of HIS return. Blessings All!"

To celebrate in this glorious season upon us, here is the card I created for you!

For this card I used:

Cardstock: Soft Suede and Very Vanilla from SU
Designer Paper: Generations from Simple Stories
Stamps: A very old old stamp from SU "Loads of Love" and "Loads of Love accessories"
Accessories: SU stripped Chocolate Chip Ribbon and Twine, Fishtail die from MFT, Circle Spellbinder, Copic Markers and a simple button.

From here, continuing hopping to Liz's blog to see what Autumn splendor she has waiting for you! We also have a special little giveaway for one lucky hopper today and you can find that on Kelly's blog - the last stop on the hop!  

Thank you for stopping by today!  In this glorious season of Fall, and the wonders of the earth changing to gorgeous colors .... in a time of gratitude and thanksgiving ... we wish many blessings for you!

Thanks for looking!!!

Crafty Gals September Challenge!!!

Hello everyone!!!. It has been so long since my last work. After the busy summer, holidays, mother's and mother's in law visits and the beginning of another school year... I'm ready to start another year of crafting. I didn't start this month on time and I have to apologize to my Crafty Gals for posting this late. The due date was on the 5th but I forgot to make my card on time and then everything run really late. I managed to make it though. Our hostess this month is the lovely Jeanette and the challenge was this:

The Simple Plan: Make a card using a punch somewhere on it. Easy Peasy!

The Advanced Plan: Make a card where you use punches to make something they were not originally intended for. For example: Use oval punches to make a frog, use circle punches to make a snowman, use the stocking punch to make a stick horse, use a heart punch to make a Christmas tree, use a variety of punches to make a chef or witch or elephant, etc.

I chose the Simple Plan. I don't have many punches. I bought this punches specially to make a Kitti Caracciolo's Hydrangea. I fall in love with her flower last year and since then I meant to do this but never tried it. So this challenge put me in the mood to try it. This card is going to my friend Karina's birthday (I hope she is not visiting my blog for a couple of more weeks...LOL!!!) Here is Kitti's Hydrangea Tutorial:

And here is my card:

For this card I used:

Cardstock: White from Recollections, Old Olive and Lavender Lace from Stampin Up
Ink: Sahara Sand from SU
Stamps: Curly cute from SU
Accessories: Circle punches, Hydrangea punch from Martha Stewart, Flourish die and Fishtail die from MFT.
