TSSC187 Flower Fest

Hello, Friends!

I hope you had as good of a weekend as we had here in Chandler!

This weekend, we had a grand opening for the new building we built at Chandler Christian Church.  It will mainly be used to reach jr. high and high schoolers, but will also have family days and other events in it.  It is awesome!  We were able to build the building and pay off a half a million dollar loan with the money people have given, in spite of the economy and people being out of work.  I got to meet lots of wonderful people this weekend giving rides in a golf cart to people coming to the new building.  Our church is growing!  The nursery, preschool, and elementary areas have grown 18% in the last year alone, which is pretty much unheard of and makes my job even better- getting to work with all of those new elementary kids! 

I don't write any of this to brag, but to give God glory for all that He is doing at Chandler Christian!  I am blessed to get to be the elementary pastor here. 

Now on to stamping!

If you haven't ever done so already, I'm giving you an assignment. 
Take one of your favorite stamp sets, with your favorite colors and stamp all over an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of card stock, like my example below.  This will give you instant backgrounds for your cards.  My card today, with the sketch made by Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge, features a background made with "Flower Fest."  It's simple, but sweet.  My card on Wednesday will also feature another piece from this background sheet.

It makes creating a card much faster when you already have some of these backgrounds ready to go! 

Happy Stamping!

I used the following Stampin' Up products to make this card:

Flower Fest and Thank You Kindly Stamp Sets
Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, and Elegant Eggplant Classic Inks
Very Vanilla, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, and Elegant Eggplant Card Stock
3/8" Ruffled Wisteria Wonder Ribbon
