"Who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Esther 4:14 (Week 4 Scripture Memory for Revive Our Hearts Esther Bible study)
Good afternoon blog followers! Happy Labor Day to those in the USA and in Canada. It is so quiet around here. This morning there was no traffic out when I took my walk. So nice! Since we are retired, and our family lives far away, we have no special plans. However, tomorrow, we will celebrate 53 years of marriage! We have a special walk planned and maybe out to eat. I will share that next week.
I am joining Try It On Tuesday with a couple of projects for their In My Garden Theme.
For this card I began with a gelli print. I stamped right on it in Memento Tuxedo Black and die cut with Sizzix stamps and dies.
Next I used a new technique for a Alpha Challenge on SCS to use toilet paper or the roll somehow on your project. I put this toilet paper right on the ink pad to ink it up and then applied it to my card base for a background for my cacti, which by the way were in my rock garden at a previous home. I thought this added some great texture.
This is the result. This is my first submission for Try It On Tuesday. Also, I will submit it for the Technique challenge for our Alpha Challenge, and the Featured Stamper Challenge on SCS. I cased a lovely card by asweetjewel aka Julie.
Close up to show the little cacti and their pots.
I hope the recipient likes her free hugs. :)
My second project for In My Garden theme for TIOT is this little bookmark/tag which I am also submitting for our Stamp2Spend Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
This was an image stamped on one of the tags I did last week with the sanitizer and oxide inks.
Now for my drink related post for TSFT over at Altered Booklover, where Elizabeth hosts this Tea party!
In July we had a ladies Bible study luncheon. I just loved their decorations and discovered a new tea and just have to share it with you. Those little suitcases are so adorable, and everyone had a different teacup!
Downton Abbey Tea! I didn't know they had such a thing! But of course it just makes since!
And I loved it. I guess they have several flavors, too. This was a Christmas one. I even love the container! :)
Have a great week. Happy T Day to the T Gang! Thank you so much for stopping by. I love to hear from you, too.
