Here are my last two new cards that I submitted to the CARDS blog stitching challenge.
I made a Frankenstein card at this months SU workshop. On that card, we drew the scars and mouth on with a marker. I thought it would be fun to make another one and use stitching instead.
I always look forward to going to my class every month. Our demonstrator, Joyce, is so sweet and talented. I get to ride with my good friend, Alison, (who I love) and get to hang out with another friend Janet (who I also love). Of course there are other women in the class and I like all of them too. For the first year that I was in this workshop, I was in a different class that met on a different night. I was so thrilled to get to move into a class with a couple of my buddies. It is always fun crafting with friends!
Anyway... the other card... well... no inspiration behind it. I just had that arrow template and I thought it would be cute to stitch over a heart. Just a great little note to tuck away sometime in my hubby's suitcase or something!
Don't forget that we will announce the second Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge bright and early on Friday morning! I hope you will all play along! There is a prize involved!! :)
On another note... I haven't shared anything 'personal' in a while. I guess I just haven't felt led to or... I have just been too 'busy' to listen. Tonight... I just want to share with you a little about our church and our high school kids.
I want to find a song and will have to post it later. It is a song that our high school band sings on Wednesday nights. I love it... it gets me emotional every time! But... let me tell you what gets me really emotional... seeing 75 plus or minus high school kids (not all of them but most) raising their hands, with their eyes closed (or open), and just worshiping God. I would NEVER have done that when I was a teenager. I still let my pride get the best of me a lot of times and think... who is going to be watching me and what will they think. The church I grew up in, you would never do that. You sang just to be singing... it wasn't really about true worship. Not to knock my childhood church... that is just how it was. You would probably have been kicked out of the church if you had done 'such a thing'! :)
I am soooo thankful to be at our church! I am so thankful that my son will grow up in a church where he will learn to worship and to not be ashamed. I mean... what are we going to be doing when we are in Heaven? We are going to be shouting and singing and raising our hands and dancing. Why don't we do that now? Pride?
Anyway... I just needed to share that. More as a confession than anything! I am so proud of those teenagers when I see them worship. I am ashamed at myself when I feel like I want to raise my hands in worship and I don't because of my own pride!
Hope you guys have had a wonderful Wednesday! I will see you again bright and early Friday morning! :)
Peace and Love!
Edit.... Here is the song I was talking about. My handy husband sent me a link if you want to go check it out here!
