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 ;-)

Well God Bless Pastor Kish! I am delighted that he played a part in your church goin' and it seems he planted the seed of faith, much like your gorgeous card shows! I LOVE the autumn colors and how I instantly pictured in my mind upstate New York in the Fall - certifiably not very many other beautiful places than that :) Wonderful card, scripture and just a burst of color and cheer - just like you, my friend! Blessings!

April, your card design is so clever - love those leaves... and the quote is perfect!

I also think it's nice that you're honoring Pastor Kish with your post.

Your pastor growing up sounds so amazing! Sounds as though he enjoyed some really great activities as well. Your card has so many amazing details- love the combination of all of them together.

I really like how you placed the sentiment and balanced it with the brown pearls...they are so pretty! Great card, April.
