CASE-ing Cindy Coutts!!!
Today is the Wednesday CASE Artist Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts, where you are to copy a fellow stamper's creation, change a few things, and make their design your own. This week Mary (softangelkisses) has chosen Cindy Coutts as the featured artist! Cindy, the founder and "Servant In Charge" of Christian Paper Crafts, has given so much of herself since the beginning of the online community in May of '09, so we wanted to let her know how much we love and appreciate how she has given us such an awesome place to fellowship, share our love of Jesus and our love of blessing others with our paper-crafting.
I have chosen this gorgeous card from Cindy's gallery to re-create. There were sooooo many awesome cards to choose from, but I chose this one (because of the layout) in order to combine Gloria's Sketch Tuesday Challenge.....Gloria had to step away for a few months after her brother was killed. (Please continue your prayers for their family!) This week, however, Gloria has returned with another fabulous sketch, so I hope you all will be able to play along. Welcome back, Gloria, and thanks so much to Jennipher Lowery for filling in during Gloria's time off.....Jenn, you did a fantastic job!!! And thirdly, Jen's Color Monday challenge (yellow and blue plus another optional color) is both in tribute of her teenage son who loves yellow, and to a son who was lost at birth....baby blue in remembrance of this dear one.
While I'm on the subject of Christian Paper Crafts, please note that there is a brand new group of scrapbook challenges for you to try. Each month on the 15th, our lovely Scrapbook Specialists, led by the beautiful and talented Jennipher Lowery, supply us with new and creative challenges to help kick-start some scrappin' mojo!!
