It's the last day of October. Yes, October 31st. Where is the year going?
The best part about today, though, is that it's time for the Crafters of Faith blog group to show their creativity. (We do that on the last day of every month.)
This month, Liz is the hostess. Here's her "assignment for us...
The scripture for my challenge is:
"But I, with a song of thanksgiving,w ill sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good, salvation comes from the Lord." Jonah 2:9
I love music and a "song of thanksgiving" surely pleases the Lord. Never does He speak that the songs of our hearts need to be perfectly performed to be a joyful sound to Him. So, think of some ways you can make a joyful sound to the Lord your God. The challenge this month will be to use a musical instrument image, musical score paper, musical note brads, etc. Whatever you have in your stash that is of the musical nature!
Liz, THANK YOU for giving us a great challenge!
Truthfully, I don't have many musical stamps/images/etc... since I can't sing (I squawk!), play an instrument, etc. I can play the radio; does that count? So I had to dig deep. I found an old old OLD Stampin' UP stamp set that I haven't used in years: Jazzed Up. Okay, that will do, I guess.
As previously mentioned, not much in the way of musical "anything" in my stash, so I used two of the stamps from the Jazzed Up stamp set to create my own designer paper. I took a lovely (subtle - pink with grungy look) scrap of DP from my scrap file and stamped the images onto it at random.
Since the backside of that soft/subtle designer paper is white, I decided to use it as my card base, too. I actually like the way that worked.
Here's the inside of my card:
