A Card and a New Challenge

Hi y'all! (That's my southern belle coming out...ha!) I'm sorry I haven't posted for a few days. I have a good reason... I attended a couple of card classes in the evenings this past week, so it took the place of my normal crafting and posting time. But I had a blast and I will share some of the cards we made soon. A shout out to my friends at Collective Journeys!!!

Today's card is for two challenges. Yes, two! Remember when I mentioned in an earlier post about something new in store? Well, it's really cool: my BBFF Kristine Breach, her sister Kathy Winter, friend Lorie Ames, and I have started a new challenge blog called Stampin' Sisters in Christ. We take turns hosting the challenge, which is based on scripture. You have to click over there and read all about it and play! Our first prize sponsor is Our Daily Bread Designs, and they have donated a beautiful stamp set!!!

Since the SSC Challenge is to make a card depicting food or drink, I jumped at the chance to ink up my new Berries & Cherries stamp set from Taylored Expressions. And of course, the Berries & Cherries Key Ingredients kit made it super easy to put a cute card together in no time! Naturally, I chose to play in this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #78. I love the sketch and I love the way my card turned out!!! Fruit images are always a favorite of mine, and who doesn't love cherries and strawberries? We are lucky to have both in plentiful quantities these days, so I'm in heaven!

Okay, next up will be the long-awaited premier of my first card(s) for La-La Land Crafts, so stay tuned! Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a blessed day! (And I promise I'll be by to visit your blogs and answer my emails soon... I'm still trying to catch up after a busy week!)
