There is a season...

Happy Sunday, and welcome to another new challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.


Chris is our hostess today, and she offers this scripture:

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.

~Ecclesiastes 3:1


Chris' challenge this week is to use fall colors OR leaves on your creation.
Our challenge this week is Sponsored by Our Daily Bread Designs.
A lucky winner will receive a $15 gift card to shop in the Our Daily Bread store!


My favorite season has to be fall.
We live in an area with many hills, trees, valleys, etc., and it's almost overwhelming how beautiful it is when the leaves all begin to change colors.
God is visible every direction you look, in every shade of red, orange, and brown.


Here is my card. This set is from Our Daily Bread Designs, and is called Quiet Waters. You can find it here.

The two deer were colored, then stamped and colored again. I fussy cut the second set, and layered them over the stamped images using dimensional dots. The sentiment is computer generated, DP is DCWV, and all coloring is done with Koh-I-Noor Pencils and LOMS. Nesties scalloped square dies were used on corners.
I hope that you all have a day full of blessings.
I also hope that Blogger cooperated and did the pre-post thing!
We left at 5:30 a.m. to go watch DD participate in a half-marathon!
Happy Sunday,
Patti J.

What a peaceful scene. I love fall as well, but I don't get to see all those beautiful color changes. There have been times when I have wore my flip flops in december in fl. How wonderful it must be to live where you are. But ... I hate cold weather. So I guess it's the sacrifice I will have to make, teehee. I hope you are having a great week my friend.
