Combo Mojo and Sisters in Christ Card and a Silly Old Tree!

I’ve combined two card challenges into one.  This card will fit for today’s Mojo Monday challenge for it’s sketch:

And it will fit with the Sisters in Christ Challenge the criteria here is:

Challenge #113 – Isaiah 1:18

Scripture:

Isaiah 1:18 "'Come now, and let us reason together,’ says the Lord. ‘Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.’”

 

Challenge:  Use fall colors in your creation: crimson, orange and gold (or similar)

Especially nice I can do these challenges along with my sister Nina (the Mojo) and my Sister in Law Judy (both)   I don’t know the brand of designer paper, the acorn and leaf are my own cuts – available for free download if you look under the tabs atop here and the hugs was cut using my Silhouette SD and in brush script font.

On a side note, I’m having a daily go about with this Ponderosa on my drive.

 

Ponderosa

Oh its so beautiful I really should not complain.  Each day since the weather took a turn toward fall/winter, my tree has begun to shed needles.  Now it does not shed them in small increments for I have watched it carefully.  No, clever tree, it waits.  I will go outside and clean up an entire tall garbage pail (stomped and compacted) and then I will come back inside.  I will watch.  Nothing.  I will watch… nothing.  I will relax, turn back to dust the furniture and turn back and suddenly there is another dump of needles.  I think the tree just wants me to get next to it – and thats not a bad thing, its very beautiful and i love the tangy fresh pine scent. 

Are YOU cleaning up after trees?  Do tell!

  2. Good evening Barb:)
    I LOVE your card!! What a COOL way to display your acorn and leaf..and also two card challenges at once.:)
    I haven't had time to work on one yet.Been cleaning woodwork and doors with my Mom today.:)
    YES!!!! I sent Jimmy outside last week to blow the leaves off of the patio and deck.That lasted until he could get back into the house.LOL JK.It took a couple of days to get filled back up again.The yard is SOO full of leaves now since the cold front came in with a windy couple of days. I figured it was a bit too soon to blow the leaves..but Freedom was bringing them in attached to her hair.hehe


    Love,
