Finally, kids are back to school and I can have some time to sit down and blog!!!!! We've had snow days and a holiday that means Mom has to find ways to entertain them. It keeps getting harder the older they get.

My card is for the monthly Bible Verse Challenge found on SCS. I used a stamp set by Papertrey Ink called Everyday Blessings (that reminds me, my new PTI order should be arriving in the next day or so!!!!! I am dangerous when it comes to their new releases!!). I stamped the cross in Kiwi kiss and the Bible verse (Hebrews 11:1) in PTI's Perfect Match Dark Chocolate. I then cut it out and embossed it with my new Nestabilities. The next layer is SU's Filigree background (do you remember that one) stamped in Kiwi kiss then sponged around the edges with the same kiwi ink. The narrow strip near the bottom was first stamped with Close to cocoa ink using the Linen background stamp, sponged with the same ink, then paper pierced. And the final layer was stamped with the French Script background in Vintage Creme ink by PTI and sponged with Close to cocoa ink again. The card itself is Chocolate chip and the other color is Apricot appeal -- I seem to pulling out all the things I haven't used in forever lately!!! A few large gold brads and the prima flower finish it off.

Now you know I have to throw in a big WOO HOO for the Steelers here!!!!! We're going to the Super Bowl!!!!!!! Can't wait for the big game!! I'm already planning my menu!!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!
