Crafters of Faith ~ Show me Water!

Today is the last day of the month and I am here to welcome you to my Crafters of Faith card! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of Christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together!  

Kelly is our hostess for this month--and she gave us a wonderful challenge:

Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them." ~ John 7:38

Hi Faith sisters! This month’s Crafter’s of Faith challenge theme is inspired this verse and your theme is: Water ! It’s summer and many of us are enjoying the splendors of the outdoors – boating, swimming, walking along the lakes and rivers. Summer rains, as heavy and burdening as they can sometimes be, bring us new growth all around ~ trees, green grass and gorgeous flowers blooming. Even spiritually, many people accept Jesus into their hearts and become baptized in water and have beach baptisms. Water is a beautiful, healing, essential! This month, I want you to use WATER as your theme on your cards: Be as creative as you like - think boats, oceans, the beach, tilted watering cans, bird baths, falling rain, etc. ! Let water be the focus of your card and extra brownie points for using the color BLUE !! Blessings!

I used one of my cute Whipper Snapper stamps and even though there is no water in the image--you do know that water is close by!  I think this card is a great summer card--so bright and colorful!

I also thought this would be a perfect Retirement card--so that is the inside sentiment:

LOL! We thought alike, Barb! I know... that's kind of scary, isn't it? But both of us had a retirement sentiment for our cards.

I love the bold colors for your card and that cute image. Cracks me up! Such an adorable chicken!!! Love the way you showcased DP, too... you know I love me some DP!
