Success, after a major fail!

First, I am sorry for the lack of post this week. It was not due to the crazy week I am having. The battery died in my camera, so I could not take or post any pictures. It is charged and ready to go! I am glad because I also missed a ton of cute things the twins were up to.
Today I am going to post another Bible verse for my ATC holder. Now, before anyone thinks I am rushing through my verses, I am not. Those first two are favorites of mine and the only part I need to get in memory is the book, chapter and verse. Plus, I think I will do up verses as they stand out to me as I study or read.
This verse gives me the warm and fuzzy feelings, so I wanted to do a warm card.

The colors at SPCC really spoke to me, so I used them.

Here is my take on the colors.

A close up.

So on this ATC I used Pumpkin Spice ink, and then I took a few liberties with the rest of colors. I used the ATC as the So Saffron, and white for the Very Vanilla. The papers are from My Mind's Eye. The stamp is from Verve and the link should take you right to the stamp 1 Corinthians 15:57. Then I just added a few wooden beads from my stash, I LOVE the wooden beads!

Okay, now onto my fail. It is the first card I made for this verse. It looked so much better in my head, then went downhill fast when I put it on paper! I think it might have been the Stickle sneeze. I will not list the supplies to protect the innocent, but if you want to know any of them just ask.

Sorry again for the lack of post. Batteries are charged and I am ready to go again. the pictures might not be the best for the next couple of days, our chance of beautiful sunlight is slim. As always thanks for stopping by.
