Great Sunday and great challenge on SSCC


I had a terrific day today in which we had a wonderful church service and then baptism ceremony afterwards (during which I was baptized). It was a wonderful service and ended up being a warm, sunny day after a cool week, so it was a very nice change as well. We couldn't have asked for a better day with family and friends. Then when we got back home I saw this terrific challenge on the SSCC blog. I just HAD to play along. Also, I had to create a card for a dear friend who underwent knee surgery this past week, so what a great challenge card to use.
Fall is in the air, and I think she will definitely like these colors -- mellow moss, mustard, chocolate chip and close to cocoa.
Then to make my day complete, I finally got a chance to play along in the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge "on a Sunday" too! :) The scripture was chosen by Kathy Winter: Ecclesiastes 3:1, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven." (NIV)

This scripture is such a beautiful one and perfect for the day. Thanks, Kathy, for a great challenge to create a fall card (ya know the Earth tone colors are my favorites to work with).
Thanks for stopping by,
