Help! I am late for the DUEL

The 15th was yesterday and that makes me sad....I missed posting a card I have had finished and waiting for this special day!
Time just got away from me!  It must be the added work I have been doing....watching four year olds is exhausting!

Without further ado, here is my card:

The themes is/was gardening and we were asked to share our favorite gardening, here is mine:
Have SOMEONE ELSE do it!!

I don't have a green thumb, and while I have an eye for what looks great, I leave the actual implementation to my husband!

Check out the other blog entries the DUELERS posted (on time) and leave them some luv!
The links are in my side bar :-)

Carriers of Faith!

June Challenge: Celebrate the Men in your life
Hostess: Paula

Challenge: I want you to create a card or gift for your father or a male figure who has been influential in your Christian life. Create multiple projects if you wish for more than one of those special men.
2. Give the project to that man or men that you hold dear to you. Celebrate these people on or before Father's Day!
3. Use any scripture you like on your project. Just make sure the scripture has a prominent place somewhere on your project and share a pic where you used the scripture.
4. Tell us why you chose this person or persons and how they played a part in your walk with Christ.
5. Explain why you chose a particular scripture on your project.

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven;" is the scripture I based by card on.  It is Ecclesiastes 3:1.

I chose the scripture/theme because it signifies my teen years.  I grew up in a small town in central New York where the church was an integral part of life.  My parents were never church goers, but my grandmother made sure I was involved in church life.  As I grew older, our pastor had a great influence on me.  He would make our activities fun and matter the season.  If we wanted to try something, he was all for it!  We had rock-a-thons, aerobic classes, caroling, sledding parties, and liturgical dance.  No matter the season, we (the children, young and old) were involved.  Here's to you Pastor Kish!

My card was made from scraps of card stock, SU! Embossing folder, amuse|studio die and Verve! stamp.

Thanks for stopping by.  Check out all the great projects....links on my sidebar ;-)
