52 Questions - Favorite Verse or Quote

Happy Friday!  It is challenge day over at Pause Dream EnjoyChallenges.  Today Janis challenged us to make a project featuring our favorite verse or quote.  Here is what I came up with:


This is one of the first bible verses I memorized as a little girl.  I always thought it was a verse about Thanksgiving - (the action, not the holiday)...  Thanking God for all He has created.  The stamps are both from Flourishes - the bunny is from Spring is Sprung, and the verse is from Lenten Roses.  The tag is cut from Plantin Schoolbook.  I colored the image with my SU chalks and my Prismacolor Pencils.  This coloring thing is still new for me - and using chalk t do anything other than color in cheeks, was a bit intimidating but, on the whole, I am pleased with what I created!  The paper is all from Recollections and the ribbon is Michaels.

I hope you come on over to Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges, see what the DT came up with, and play along with us!  There is a chance to win too :)  June will have TWO winners!  A Canadian winner and an American winner!!  They will each win a beautiful Close to my Heart stamp set!


The Canadian consultant is Darla Haverstock - here are links to her BLOG and STORE


The American Consultant is Lucy Kelleher - here are links to her BLOG and her STORE

A challenge or two for my tag:
Divas by Design - anything goes
Simon Says Challenges - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - anything goes
Craft a Scene - may flowers
Stampin Sisters in Christ - add a technique you are afraid of (chalking, well coloring in general...)
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges - anything goes
Bearly Mine Challenges - animal kingdom
Everybody Art Challenges - anything but a card
Flourishes - thank you card or tag - this may be stretching it a bit, but it is a tag about giving thanks - hopefully it counts...

I hope everyone enjoys a gorgeous weekend - the weather looks like it may be starting to clear here after a week of cold and rain!  Hope you all get a little time to craft!

A la prochaine...
