Crafter's of Faith September Blog Hop

On the last day of every month, my blogging group take turns hosting a challenge.  This gives us a chance to flex our crafty fingers and interact with all our friends on Crafter's of Faith.

This month's challenge is "anything goes" with a scripture of our choice.  I chose Psalm 91:1.

Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the shelter of the most High will rest in the Shadow of the Almighty.

I live only about 45 minutes from the Outer Banks and was just thinking about "hurricane season" and how we have been so blessed this year.  This verse has always brought me such comfort and peace.

I used an Art Impressions stamp colored with Prismacolor pencils and a Darice embossing folder.  I also used Spellbinders dies to cut out my image and corresponding background.

Thanks for visiting my blog today I appreciate your comments and support!  My sister's blogs are listed on my sidebar, please take a moment and give them a look and some love!

Whimsy and Stars Autumn Harvest

I'm thrilled to be sharing one of Mabelle's fabulous fall creations with you today, "Acorn Squirrel".    She is getting ready for a long cold winter by harvesting acorns:

I chose "Farmhouse" patterned paper from Crate Paper and colored my image with Copic markers.   I cut my leaves with a Creative Memories punch and used a "Fall" stamp I found in my local Michaels.  

I just love that adorable bonnet!  You can purchase this cutie as an instant digi download from the Whimsy and Stars store here.  There are also other new fall creations to choose from.

Thanks for stopping by today!  I love reading your comments and appreciate your support.

What an adorable teddy!  He is so cute sitting on the pumpkin holding a leaf.  

I'll just provide a brief description and then on to the blog hop!  I used My Mind's Eye Stella Rose "Mabel" design paper and colored my image with Copic markers.  I added a Creative Memories border punch fence and decorated with leaves punched from a Creative Memories punch.  A little dash of distress inks was used on the fence and leaves.

Back to School!

I can't believe summer is "almost" over!  When the yellow school buses start coming by my house early in the morning, I feel like it's a brand new season.  I fell in love with this digi by Mabelle, "Back to School".  
I just love the huge pencil and the happy look on that adorable face!  I have one grandchild in kindergarten this year who was "bustin" at the seams to get started and then older grandchildren who were dreading the start of another school year.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Whimsy and Stars has rubber stamps and digis that will suit your every need.   We would love for you to visit the new blog and show us your creations on our Facebook page!
