This is my May Crafters of Faith card.  This is a great group that my friend Kelly started on SCS. and we are well in our 4th year.  I am the hostess this month and gave everyone this challenge:

Scripture:  Isaiah 40:31 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.

Challenge:  Make a project that showcases strength that you have received from your faith. Or, something that you are not strong at, but are working to be better! It could be an image, a technique, style of card—anything you want to highlight.

I love to garden and I do think it is a strength. We start many, many seeds in the basement under grow lights in March and then move the trays to the greenhouse in April.  I then transplant the seedlings into pots and baskets that we place around our deck the end of May.  I usually have around 2 dozen pots and baskets overflowing with flowers. We have 2 huge baskets that are 4 feet tall and showcase many types of flowers and vines. I also plant four half whiskey barrels and I love the look of those too.  Rebecca is in charge of the vegetable seeds and plants those raised beds.   

I picked a fun Art Impressions stamp set that I got a year or so ago called His & Hers Gardeners.  The images just make me smile and there are some cute sentiments too.  I stamped the images on a piece of cardstock that I die cut from My Favorite Things Blueprints 27.   I colored the lady and garden hose with my Copic Sketch Markers. Green Enamel Dots are the only embellishment. I really like the look of this card!

Here is the inside of my card with a strip of washi tape:

I hope Kelly and the others from the Crafters of Faith group like my card this month!  We are to post between the 7th and 10th of each month, so if you look on my sidebar, you may see other creations.  I know that there will be many posted in the COF thread on SCS too!  Jeanette is up for our June challenge, so be sure to check back to see what I create!

that is one fun card Barb, and could apply to me too - Truth is I've done the lot for the last 47 years anyway :)
Stay safe
