Faith Is...

Back with another set for the SIL!

I picked some cool colours for this one.  One thing that has been really fun about doing this project has been digging out old papers that I haven't used forever.  While it's really fun to use what's new, I'm not a person who ever likes to waste, so it bothers me when I have older papers just sitting.  Papers that are perfectly great still.  This is some older SU paper, with a retired colour - Sage Shadow.  I always thought it was the prettiest shade of cool green.

I was going for a design that could still be a little masculine, so I cut out the Plain Jane - Hebrews 11:1 with Spellbinders Hexagons die.  Angular always seems to work for guys don't you think?  And I love how just a simple switch of papers gives a different look to each design.  

Along with the Plain Jane, I used some leaves from the Dream Big Set, stamped in Sage Shadow, trimming them out and accenting with a little corduroy button and some twine.  

We're limping along a little here with my husband's broken wrist.  I feel so bad for him!  He's still in quite a lot of pain and he's trying his best to live life as a lefty, but it's really hard!  Can't wait till we can get some news from the surgeon this week!  Otherwise I'm going to have to learn how to shave his beard for him :)  That could be interesting!
