Lord of the Season Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! I was so honored to be asked by Nina Brackett to showcase one of her beautiful stamp sets, Lord of the Season, in today's Gina K Blog Hop. I met Nina through Stampin' Sisters in Christ, although I had seen and admired her work long before that. Now that I've gotten to know her, she is even more of an inspiration and blessing to me than ever. Nina has such a sweet and godly spirit. You really must visit her blog and learn more about her and her husband's ministry in Croatia...and see pictures of her beautiful girls!

I know lots of people are getting into the Christmas mood, but I'm still embracing autumn, so I chose the autumn topiary for my card... and one of the two awesome verses that come with this stamp set. Yes, to everything there IS a season... and we need to keep that in mind when we are in a hurry for something to happen. God knows what He is doing!

The DP is by Bo Bunny. Since I was following this week's sketch challenge at Stamp TV, I couldn't resist breaking out my lattice Borderability for the center strip.

I have lots of Gina K stamp sets and it's long past time that I start inking them up and giving them the love they deserve! Stamp TV is such a wonderful resource and place to share our love of paper crafting. I will definitely be back soon with more!

Lori said...

your cards are beautiful. I tried to sign on to feedblitz to get your postings and it won't recognize you. Anybody with so much cat stuff, I am the ultimate cat lover, and works for University adm., my son is LAS adm. IT, then I must see their work daily. Do you have any ideas on what I might be doing wrong? I already get Feedblitz posts daily.
