Challenge 14 - Twist of Faith - "Light"

Happy Tuesday my dear sweet friends - this is just the beginning of my posting today.  I will be back in a while with my second post for the day.  I think I will call Tuesday's my "Two 4 Tuesdays Challenge Day".

I sure hope you are doing well.  And just in case you have missed it - there are two more days left in my blog candy give away.  The details are listed at the top post on my blog.

Today's challenge with Twist of Faith is called - "Light" - "Let there be Light".  Your card should depict LIGHT - a light source such as the sun, moon, a lamp, a candle, etc.  And make sure you include a scripture, quote or uplifting sentiment that follows this weeks theme. 

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Pholkart Blessings who will be giving this weeks random chosen winner their choice of two digital images.  You can read more about Patty and her wonderful shop on the Twist of Faith Challenge Blog.  

I love this sweet image and had so much making this card.  As you can tell (I hope) I tried to add some light (sparkle and shine) by adding a few different textures.  For the manger I added some gold, silver and white tinsel to create the look of straw.  Added stickles to the star and around the outside edges of the reddish background paper as well as all the swirls around the baby.  I color the images with Copics.  There is a scripture sentiment on the inside of the card however silly me forgot to take a photo of that.  I was out running errands with my sister most of today as we had lots to do for her to be ready for surgery at 6:30 AM today.  I am hoping I can post a photo of the inside of the card later today - it just depends on how her surgery goes.

The Twist of Faith Design Team has some great cards to share with you this week.  I hope you will check out their blogs and all the links are on the Twist of Faith Challenge Blog.  Please join in this week ladies - we would all love to see what you create for this challenge.

Until later today - have a blessed day!!

Hugs and smiles

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
