November: Hostess ~ Jody

I originally chose November because I wanted to celebrate Gratitude or Thanksgiving, as I was searching through the scriptures for verses for those words, I came across the following scripture:
"Sing unto the Lord with thanksgiving" - Psalms 147:7

…this verse spoke to me, as music and giving thanks to the Lord through song has always been an important part of my worship and study. One year I took our hymn book and studied the scriptures that went with each hymn, it was a wonderful new way to study and added much to my life. Two of my favorite hymns are "How Great Thou Art" and "Come Thou Font of Every Blessing", as the words in these hymns expresses our gratitude to the LORD.

Your challenge is to make card that represents how worship through music touches your life. It could be something that represents a favorite hymn, a song of gratitude, your favorite type of music, anything along those lines, the field is wide open. Looking forward to your creations.

 I took a CAS approach- stamped the image and embossed it, then colored it in with Zig markers. I added some clear Nuvo drops and a bow in twine. 

 I love music- and learning to play the piano is on my bucket list : )  I am currently beginning my 3rd year.  I am getting there- need to practice more! My Mom played the piano and also sang- she had a beautiful voice!  With her Dementia she has lost some of the piano skills (she can play the older music beautifully), and does not project enough when she sings.  

You can see all of the cards HERE on Splitcoast.

Tuesday Throwdown is having a challenge for Shaker Cards. ( I have joined the team again!)  The Sponsor is Sweet n Sassy Stamps.

  I love the Country Snowman- doesn't he scream let's enjoy the day?!!!  I printed out the image and fussy cut it out.  I colored with Copics.  The die is colored over the cut lines with a white Signo pen and a Stardust Sakura gelly roll pen. The snow (MS) and snow glitter (Sparkle and Sprinkle) and a few sequins are added for the snow.

I hope you will join in the fun at the Tuesday Throwdown Blog!!!

Unity- Plaid

 I had a few minutes to make a card using some new stamps : )  I joined in a challenge for 'plaid' on the Unity FB group.

 I stamped this image on cardstock twice in black, and on plaid DP in white.  I fussy cut the plaid and the (2nd) white cardstock, then glued them in place.  Then I colored the image with Copics. The die is Gina Marie. The ribbon is from DLART and is Mocha- I won this in the Spring Coffee Blog Hop.  I love the sentiment- I think it is very encouraging!
