Decorated Christian Swap Round 2

We are supposed to make 3x5 in size cards with scripture and embellish them anyway we chose. I wanted to share a taste of my home by making them out of fiesta colored cardstock. I printed the scriptures on linen paper, tore, and distressed the edges with Ranger's Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.
Stamped some faith images in Tea Dye DS Ink and added bling.
I'm really pleased with how these turned out, but wait there's more...I'm hoping to finish them off by...

Just saying Hi :)

Hello fellow craftmates :) 
I've been away from the blogosphere  for a few days. Life has been eventful since I've been gone...had a root canal done, adjusting to our new family member Snuffy, and setting up my first online store (thank you Kris for helping me).
So this a short and sweet note to let you know that you can  check out my new adventure by clicking on the Artfire badge in the right hand column. I'm just getting started so I only have a few items in my store. My plan is to add one item a day (hopefully God will agree with it ;) That's all for tonight until we blog again, have a blessed day <3
