A Stitch in Time

This week our challenge theme is:

and a scripture, or uplifting verse or positive words of healing, encouragement, or support

Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern; it will come out a rose by and by.
Life is like that - one stitch at a time taken patiently
and the pattern will come out all right like the embroidery.
 ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes ~

Not a scripture share for your this week, but a piece of wisdom  that is encouraging, and comforting. As always, you are free to use whatever scripture, or verse/passage that will suit your creation in our theme.

We are pleased to welcome our sponsor for this week, Robyn's Fetish! Our randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of five (5) digital images from  Robyn's Fetish ... and we thank our sponsor for the generous prize.

I have used the image "School Girl" for my card, and my verse reads, "Even a child shall be known by his doings (Proverbs)" I started with a piece of pink card for my base. The DP are all coordinating papers from the same pad by K&Company. This is a wonderful pad of double sided papers, so the background piece and the pink flowered piece are actually the front and back of the same sheet as are the green piece and the plaid piece. How neat is that? Only had to cut into two pieces but all those different patterns/looks. After lightly tacking the pink, the ribbon, the plaid and the green to the background pink and brown DP, I then sewed all around with my sewing machine (you can ever so slightly see it if you enlarge the image). The bow, the flowers (Wild Orchid Crafts) and the sentiment finish off this little card. 

The inside will be words of praise following the lines of the outside sentiment and will read, "We are so very blessed by all you have done."

Stop by Twist of Faith this week and see the cards that the other DT members have made to inspire you. Then pull out your sewing machine or needle and thread and join us in this week's challenge.
