I am playing along with a new challenge today. The ladies at Stampin Sisters in Christ have a weekly challenge that always involves making a card based on scripture. I thought it would be fun to play along. The scripture this week is from Galatians.
"Gal. 5:22-23a "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."
The challenge, therefore, was to use fruit in my card.
I had gotten this pear stamp when I was at inspiration station for the memory box workshop and I had an idea to use paper piecing on the pears. I grabbed the sketch from a book I had and voila... a nice thinking of you card that could be appropriate for any number of occasions.
So, that's my card. Did you do anything fun this weekend? I was so glad to get the windows in my bedroom cleaned. I can see outside now!!! I also finished cleaning out my craft closet. Whoo - Hoo! That closet has been a mess for a while and it got to be a really big mess over the summer. I dreaded the thought of spending hours in there, so I came up with a plan. At the beginning of Sept, I decided to spend 1 hour in the closet per week. Here is what the closet looked like before I started.
Eeek, how embarassing. This looks like something right out of the TV show hoarders!!! Here is what it looked like after I spent 2 hours:
