Well, house fire was last August 13 and insurance-hired contractors had our home repaired to move back in on February 2. There have been a lot of health issues for both my husband and I in addition to all that. Besides church attendance and playing hymns for church services, crafting has been my therapy for handling the stress and giving me weekly momentum.
Recently I took up the challenge to shop through my old inventory and put together a copy cat kit, a forgery, of a company's kit featured on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog. Most of the papers and stickers used for the cards seen in this post came from my August kit.
Editing after photographing & 1st edition of blog post:
Inside panels: I selected 4 different Bible verses using either Amplified Version or NLT
On Day 2 after editing and finishing the inside panels for the 6 cards shown at the top of this post, I had plenty of triangles left over so I decided I'd take the time to get 2 more cards made that will be sent to North Carolina and donated there.
and the CKCB badge:
And a diagram for sketch layout that inspired all the triangles was shared in the Facebook closed group: Christian Card Making ~Women's Fellowship. They had the sketch issued challenge just a few days ago and then the August long challenge was for 20 cards to be made that will be sent to an elderly care facility. So since I just discovered this group about 48 hours ago, I asked them if I could just make a few so I could get them sent by the August 25th deadline. I got to work tonight in 2 different sessions to accomplish these 6 pictured cards. [1st batch] Here's the challenging sketch design that I tried to follow and then modify to fit 4" x 5.25" base cards.

a few other design notes:
a. some of the designer papers were recently received as a gift of happy mail from a crafter of another Facebook closed group (Junk Journal Junkies etc.)…
b. the angel, cross, and dove are rubber stamps from Stampin' Up
c. the stenciled sentiments came from a set of Bible journaling stencils from American Crafts that were a gift last autumn from a church friend/fellow crafter
d. I've been blessed by others sharing with me and I will pay it forward by sending these 6 [now 8]cards to be donated.
