Hello friends! Since October is about to come to a close, I figured I better hurry up and do something about the fact that it’s Pastor Appreciation Month! So I spent my Sunday evening making eight loaves of zucchini bread from a giant zucchini my neighbor gave me, and will drop two loaves off at my church today on my way to an eye doctor appointment. And here are the cards I made to go with the loaves…
I made these in the style of a postcard with the writing on the back, so they’re not too fussy. I die-cut the Big Thanks from Simon Says Stamp in Tangy Orange card stock, then layered it over Kraft card stock that was stamped with the BG Fine Check background stamp from My Favorite Things. This navy/kraft/tangerine/yellow color combo was from the Colour Q challenge a few weeks ago. I loved the combo, but just didn’t get around to trying it until now. These cards also work for the current “Get Crafty” challenge on the Simon Says Wednesday challenge blog.
Another loaf of zucchini bread will go to our Sunday School teacher who is also a good family friend. She recently had a minor procedure done, and is still having to take life a little easier for a few more days, so hopefully a card and bread will cheer her up!
I’ve had a print-out of this fabulous card made by Arielle Gordon. I’ve been trying my darndest to CASE her fantastic design, but without success. When I finally gave up trying to CASE completely, and just let my own version come to life, then I was happy! This card uses the very pretty Painted Flowers set from Altenew, a Hero Arts sentiment, and the BG Sheet Music background stamp from MFT.
I hope your Monday is off to a great start, and you’re looking forward to a great week! Thank you for stopping by!
