My Life Scripture

Philippians 4:4-7 (ESV English Standard Version) Holy Bible
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let the reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus.

Card Making Marathon!

I am preparing for a Card Making Marathon!  I plan to create as many A2 cards as possible before Thanksgiving Day!  I donate cards to a local church.  I was notified yesterday that all of my cards have been sent.  I must create more before next Thursday!

Here are my preparations for the Marathon...(I will post the completed cards that I make each day)

**Stamp as many sentiments and images as possible!  I used wooden block stamps and clear stamps on white paper.  I used a dye ink so the images would dry quickly.  I plan to use Sharpie markers and colored pencils.

**I stamped several images and then cleaned the stamps.  I have a small kitchen area next to my craft room.  I clean the stamps and let them dry.  I will put them away later!! :0)
**I will be using scraps of printed paper for the most part, but I will select whole sheets when necessary.  I have already cut several A2 card fronts from solid colored cardstock.  All card fronts will be completed before adhering to the card base.
**I store scraps of solid colored paper in drawers.
**I will need inspiration for cards, so I will be using some of my favorite resources!

**This is my craft room.  I had to add a long table in the middle of the room.  I am usually working on more than one project and this extra table was the answer to my REALLY MESSY, CROWDED work table.

**I had visitors this morning!  These pictures are through the windows and between the blinds!

Have a wonderful weekend!  Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog!

I will post my cards each day!  Please come back again!

Carolyn, you are so thoughtful. I sure do wish I had a space like yours. If I get to move close to Donna I will have a scrap room. Pray for my house to sell.
