To everything there is a season

Thanks to Lin, I found this Site called Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges. Oh Happy Days! This really appeals to me and I decided to join in their challenge for Nature cards. I got the inspiration from this blog entry. Daniëlle is a lovely Dutch Christian woman who sent me a very encouraging verse of Scripture this morning to lift my spirits - thanks Daniëlle!

 DSCI7584-1

It wouldn't be complete if I didn't thank Sue Czosek for the continual support she has been in supplying craft goodies that I could never buy here! The dies of the Birdcage and bird from Tim Holtz came from her.

All the stamps are Hero Arts, even the feathers on the bird, which is the Glande Fern C3636. The background is a pp from 7 gypsies which I stamped on with the whole clearset of leaves. I put them all together on a big acrylic block, used different color distress inks to ink them up and stamped on the paper. The birdcage is distressed and stamped on with Old French Writing. The gems are also from HA - they are my favorite Hero Hues set.

  1. Another jaw-dropper, Jacqueline. You've matched up the bircage with your fall theme beautifully. And your scripture verse is the perfect addition.
