"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks the door will be opened."
The challenge on your cards this week is : To us a door or window on your card!
One card will be chosen winner and receive a special stamp set from Simon Says Stamp!
I searched and searched for a stamp that had a door on it...and remembered this lovely Flourishes image from "Christmas Postcard," which had a small church in the background of this dreamy winter scene. I thought it appropriate for this challenge...you could use a door of a building, a door image, make a small door in your card, use designer paper with a door on it, whatever you wish!! And if you can't find a door, use a window!
I wanted to use my new fleur de lis rectangles to frame this image. I stamped this initially on some Jovial designer paper to give it more of an antique feel. (Leslie from Running with Scissors gave me that idea!) I then used frosted lace and diamond stickles to add snow, colored it in with various copics in soft colors, added a wrinkled distressed ribbon and gold cording...and have one Christmas card done!! Or this could be a winter birthday card, I used the "Warm winter wishes" so my card could be used for any winter occasion! Of course, today is a sunny day in Colorado, and this picture may be hard to capture the winter feel and all the sparkle, but it is there!
So...please jump in and join the challenge this week!! In my week the church is a door I enter through frequently...it is a place of worship, study of God's word, a place of renewal, friendships, encouragement, and a place to be real with others who are earnestly seeking God and want to know Him better!!
Thank you so much for coming by...have a blessed week!
