Autumn Birthday Wishes

A couple of my friends and I have October birthdays. I remember us talking when we were young wondering if we were so similar because of our close birthdates and the fact that we were the oldest  children in our families. Whatever the reason, all three of us are getting older in a couple of weeks.  So here's a fall card for one autumn birthday.  I was inspired by the Heart 2 Heart challenge to use banners. Mine are stamped, trimmed then stitched at the top.

Thank you for visiting! May you be blessed!

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Dragonfly Journeys Challenge #127 - Fall festival of colors
Heart 2 Heart Challenge - banners
Make My Monday Challenge #80 - fall/autumn colors

Last night as I read the Bible I came to a favorite verse that I need every day, especially as I age:

Isaiah 40:31 (WEB)
31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up
with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

365 Promises of God - Promise #264: If you wait for Me, I will renew your strength.

September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - Just Treats

Welcome to our blog hop featuring the CTMH stamp of the month! If you just came from Melinda Everitt's blog, you're on the right path. You can find a complete list of participants at Melinda's blog hop list here.

I thought this stamp set is perfect for the many Christmas tags I make each year. Here are two of the ones I made this week. I cut both tags using the new Thin Cuts-Fancy Tags. I thought white embossing would look nice for both. The first uses all of the tiny Christmas images to make a stamped background. The word "JOY" was masked using a sticky note. (First I stamped the entire image, then I cut out the word "JOY" and stamped again on my white cardstock letting all the other words match up again on the sticky note so that only "JOY" is stamped on the white cardstock.)

The second tag includes a snowflake using the new Thin Cuts-Winter Flurries with a new Red Pearl in the center. Both tags are made using paper from the new 'Tis the Season paper pack and Candy Apple Striped Ribbon, and White and Gold Skinny Ribbon.

You can purchase this stamp only in the month of September for the full price of $18.95 or for $5 with a $50 purchase from your consultant or here on my website.
