Walk by Faith

Happy New Year everyone!! I have only one resolution for this year (okay other than the losing weight one, but that's just an annual one for me :). My one resolution is to remember this scripture and live by it. I know sometimes when things aren't going the way I think they should, I try to take control and make them work.....usually doesn't work. I want to live my Faith more!

With this card, I got to participate in 2 challenges on SCS, the Sketch Challenge, and the Ways to Use It Challenge.

I started with a kraft card base and inked the edges with chestnut roan chalk ink. I used a VERY old paper from Hot off the Press (does that tell you how old it is?) The stamp is from Stampabilities and I stamped it in eggplant Versamagic ink. I tied the cross charm on with sheer ribbon and added the dew drops. Very easy, but to me it makes a statement.

I cleaned my studio yesterday and I'm finishing it today. I just might take some pictures. It's still not perfect and it never will be so I might as well share it while it's as neat as it's going to be right?

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hey Jeanette. This card is so pretty. I love that you found a use for really old paper. Every now and then I do that, which reinforces my desire to save every scrap of paper I have.

Beautiful card, Jeanette, and I love the verse too. May it keep you constant company in the coming year...and in every year after that. ;)

I don't have time to comment on ALL of your posts since my last visit (it's been a while -- sorry), but I've browsed most of them and want to just say I LOVE your work, CONGRATS on your exciting, new online business (hopefully I'll have some money this year to shop with...), I'm glad that everyone's health issues have been resolved, and YAY! for your cool Christmas gift from your sweet hubby!
