Crafter’s Of Faith Autumn Blog Hop

It’s time again for the Crafters of Faith Blog Hop. Crafters of Faith is a group of Christian bloggers that met and bonded on SplitCoast Stampers, to craft, fellowship, make friendships and more!! I am so blessed to have you stop by and celebrate the beauty of AUTUMN with us!  If you are just visiting and would like to hop with us, welcome! If you hopping along already, you should have arrived from Liz D’s blog.

This month, our hostess is Carol S! She gave us a wonderful Harvest challenge and here is what she asked us to create:

"I love FALL, the colors and the smells! I would like to propose that we make a card with fall colors, it should include fruits and vegetables to remind us of the harvest. When my kids were small, I canned peaches and pears, made pickles and such. So much fun to open those jars in the dead of winter! I am looking so forward to the fall festival of Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). To Biblical historians, this is the actual time of Christ's Birth and many people believe this will also be the season of HIS return. Blessings All"

 

To celebrate in this glorious season upon us, here is the card I created for you!

Thank you for stopping by today! In this glorious season of Fall, and the wonders of the earth changing to gorgeous colors .... in a time of gratitude and thanksgiving ... we wish many blessings for you!

To God who gives our daily bread
A thankful song we raise,
And pray that he who sends us food
May fill our hearts with praise.

Sharon, your card is beautiful! As soon as I read Carol's theme, I thought of a cornucopia, but then I quickly realized I don't have a stamp. I'm so glad to see your cornucopia and the beautiful card you've created to celebrate the season. AND I'm SO thrilled to be part of this wonderful group with you! Hugs, kadie

~ Sharon ~ said...

Hi Kadie, thanks for stopping by. I didn't have a stamp that fit the theme either so I just googled free public domain images and found this line drawing. I saved it and imported it into a Word Document, printed it up and, voila, here it is. I'm so happy you have joined our group as well. I'm making the rounds so I will hop by your blog sometime soon.

Sharon, I love the fruit in your image! It makes me want to eat apples and grapes! The autumn colors are just perfect for our challenge.

I am so glad to be a part of the COF and having met you. Have a great day!

How ironic that we both thought to use cornucopias! Your purple offsets the image perfectly and I love how you followed through with it on the inside!

Carol said...

This card just makes me think Autumn! Very nice! Love the colors and the layout.

A great card for harvest. The harvest is plenty and the workers are few. God needs our help.
