Stampin' Sisters in Christ~Seasonal Birds

Good Sunday morning to you!! As you can see by my photo above...Colorado is gorgeous right now with all the leaves putting on their showy display!! You can see a peek of the gorgeous leaves in golden hues right behind my card. We have three huge trees that line that back of our deck, so our yard, our deck, the neighbors covered with them!

Today's challenge hostess at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is the wonderfully talented MariLynn. You can read her devotional on the SSIC blog.
The verse:
Ecclesiastes 3:1
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven."

The challenge: Use something that shows the passing of time in your card, exs: a calendar, a sun, a creative!!
My card today uses a set that is one of my favorites and yet I have only used one or two of these separately on a card. But combined, you can see spring, summer, and fall on the front of my card. I tried hard to fit all four seasons but the card was going to end up being over 6 inches square and they still wouldn't fit this shape fit the images...and you get the idea of the seasons changing, I hope. I made a 3x7 inch card and used the SU! Seasonal Bird for my stamp set, SU! Brushed copper paper, and a flourished embellishment also cut in the copper paper. The pretty designer paper is one I have had for a long time, it has shades of copper, browns, greens, creams and has a glittery shimmer to it.

This week's prize sponsors are three free Digital Images by Louby Lou!! Such cute designs!!
As always, thank you so much for taking the time to visit here. I sure hope you will be inspired by this week's devotional and accompanying challenge. I look forward to seeing your creations! Have a wonderful week!
