Sowing and Reaping

Hello, Friends! It's time for another challenge at Word Art Wednesday. This verse is another one that is great for Pastor Appreciation cards. Psalm 126:3 says, "They that sow in tears shall reap in joy." Having a dad that was a pastor and now being married to pastor, I can tell you that pastors who love their flocks truly do sow with tears and grieve when a member of their congregation is grieving or going down a wrong path. But oh the joy when someone accepts Jesus as their Savior, has a spiritual victory or is rejoicing over something. Truly the ministry is a wonderful blessing! 

For my card this week, I kept the focus on this wonderful verse. I used  Mojo Monday sketch 539 for inspiration and stayed pretty close to the sketch. I added a couple sequins for embellishment.

Cardstock: Recollections (cream), Coredinations (navy)
Patterned Paper: Refined (Celebrate 6 x 6 pad)
Stamp: WORDart by Karen (Psalm 126:5)
Dies: Divinity Designs (Double Stitched Circles), Spellbinders (Standard Circles Large), Lawn Fawn (Everyday Sentiment Banners)
The Paper Studio sequins

Thanks for visiting today. I hope the rest of your week goes well and that you'll have time to stop by the Word Art Wednesday blog and see the projects from the rest of the design team.

Good Stewards - Pastor Appreciation

Hello, My Friends! I know it's been a while. Life got a little busy over the summer and I needed to take a hiatus for a bit. But I'm back now and hoping to post on a regular basis. It's time for a new challenge at Word Art Wednesday. For our verse this week we are focusing on 1 Peter 4:10, "As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God." October is Pastor Appreciation month. I think this verse is a great one for pastors as they minister to others with the gifts the Lord has given them. They are to be good stewards those gifts and share the Lord's grace with others.

For my card this week, I was inspired by Mojo Monday Sketch 541. I rotated it and changed up the shape a little. I really like theses Papers by Pink and Main. They are good for masculine cards year round and for fall cards as well. I kept it pretty simple as I am just easing back into crafting.


Cardstock: Recollections #110 (white for card base), Pen & Gear (white for sentiment panel), Bazzill 
Patterned paper: Pink & Main (Take Flight 6 x 6 - retired)
Tools/Embellishments: Offray ribbon, Eyelet Outlet bling, Creative Memories fine tip black marker, Spellbinders Label 7 dies

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. I hope you'll have time to stop by the Word Art Wednesday blog for more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.
