Praying for You


I have really enjoyed the technique Scene Silhouettes from the August newsletter. This card uses the stamp set from Stampin' Up called Scenic Season but I cut off the words "Seasons Greetings" before I mounted the stamp. I could easily see this set becoming as absolutely versatile as the Lovely as A Tree set. So I didn't want to limit the use of this set to only Chrsitmas cards. I tore some computer paper to create the clouds and sponged colors a sunset and dusk fast approaching. I created grassy hill sides direct to paper using three different green ink spots and then sponging Soft Suede ink over the greens. I was inspired to create this card as I sat in church on Sunday. The words for one of the songs was overlayed on a sunset type of sky and I immediately thought of creating this card. I sponged the edge of the card with Not Quite Navy and then with Soft Suede inks. I am going to send this card to a friend who has recently had a serious health issue diagnosed. I hope you enjoy this card! It was fun to make.

Absolutely gorgeous. Makes me think of the Smokey Mountains, the Adirondack Trail, Ozarks and all the other hills, valleys and trails I love. Thanks so much for creating this. God's spirit of Creation shines forth in your paper creation.

I have that set and I, too, cut off the words. You did a beautiful job on this card. Also, you have a very valid point that this set is going to become another "Lovely as a Tree". They are both so versitile and truly wonderful sets. Great job.
