Have you seen the Divine Design 2009 Challenge? I enjoyed participating in this challenge a few times last year, and hope to be more consistent with it this year. The challenge is a great way to use your papercrafting to help memorize Scripture and meditate on God's Word. (Basically, you create a Scripture-based project each month, but you can read the "official rules" if you click on the link.) I'd love to create some kind of mini-album or Scripture box, but just like last year, I don't have such an album or box created or planned (where does the time go?), so I'm going with a card. And if by December I still have no album, but have 12 cards, I will be happy that I participated every month! Huge hugs and thanks to Nancy Morgan and Angel Wilde, this year's challenge hosts, and to Lori Craig, who started this challenge last year and continues as a "Scripture Chick" this year!
The Jeremiah 29:11 Scripture stamp and cross image are from a new set that Verve will be releasing tonight. All I can say is I hope Julee ordered lots of these!
I stamped the cross in Mellow Moss and the Scripture in black onto card-stock-weight vellum. It looks a little fuzzy in the picture, but in real life, it's such a nice soft look and you can see the background paper through the vellum as well. The frame, which is popped up on dimensionals is made with Nestabilities. The piercing is done using an Ornare piercing template I got from Our Daily Bread Designs. The black "pearls" are by Kaiser, and I found them at Stamper's Dream.
I hope you can join the Verve Divas at the release party tonight, 8 pm ET, in the Verve Member Company Forum on SCS. And a heads-up to all challenge lovers, Verve Diva Amber Hight has this week's new Viva La Verve Challenge posted, too.
Thanks for stopping by!
