My grandsons started back to school on Tuesday. They complained only slightly about things at school and about their teachers. I encouraged them to look for the good qualitites about their teachers and concentrate on that.
I reminded them that their teachers are an authority over them in school. And, God wants us to be respectful and obedient to those in authority over us.
It was a good conversation and they listened. I love being able to be a positive influence in their lives.
color challenge #339 on Splitcoaststampers.
Yours truly was the hostess of the challenge this week. I chose the fall colors of always artichoke, so saffron, and cajun craze. It was well received and that's always good.
For my card, I used the Verve stamp set "bountiful harvest". I love this cute little turkey. I decided to paper piece him with designer paper. I used so saffron for his body and cajun craze for his feathers, beard and beak.
On my background panel I used the cuttlebug embossing folder "autumn type". I love all the fall & thanksgiving words in this folder. My card layout is an old sketch from Verve that I modified somewhat.
My designer paper is from Stampin-Up’s "so saffron & always artichoke collection". I punched a few leaves from the designer paper to complete my card.
In closing, I am offering blog candy through Thursday night. Check out this post for the details.
So until next time..........God bless
