Stampin' Up! Sailing Home

Good Sunday morning. I'm blessed that my church (New Hope Presbyterian) is doing the sermon and Sunday School class on line so I can attend in my pj's! How are y'all faring out there in lock-down land? Well, I hope. 

My  friend is doing a weekly video, from her home, of an encouraging, uplifting teaching. Today's lesson was about Jesus being the anchor of our soul. If you'd like to watch, just click on this link. Two weeks ago she had no idea how to use FB or You Tube! Today is also her birthday and I sent her this card.

Using product from the Come Sail Away Suite Bundle,the Ornate Garden Suite Early Release and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, I made another card for her. She keeps my cards on display in her kitchen/dining area. There is so much to love about her! Let me show you the happy mail she'll be receiving...

As soon as I watched her video, this idea popped into my head. My design was inspired by the Global Design Project Challenge #GDP234.

and Double D Banners Challenge. Here's their mood board...

I am hoping she doesn't look at my blog because it won't get there until Tuesday!

I'm also entering my card in the ATG Challenge Weeks #432-433 at Word Art Wednesday Let me show you the inside ...

Isn't this frame wonderful? I typed the scripture verse that she used in her lesson and cut it to fit the frame.

I have listed supplies used to create this card, including the card stock cuts, at the end of this blog post.

Thank you for visiting today and letting me share my faith with you, as well as my love for creating cards.

If you have any questions about my card, just let me know in a comment and I'll get back to you!

Hugs from a distance!
