Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge #25 - Layers!

Good morning everyone! Rise and shine to a new week ahead. Here's to hoping for happy Immigration news this week!! Today begins a new Challenge at Tammy's Scrapin Corner. This challenge is all about layers! You have to have at least two layers on your project. Here is my card using an image from Digi Darla Designs - Fall Kids. I love this image! Hope you enjoy the card.. I had a lot of fun making it.. My first try at a Step Card of any type:

I used random patterned papers and cardstock that I had. The white cardstock that I made the card from came from Michaels. I believe it was Bazzill, but I can't be 100% sure. I printed this image several times and colored them with Copic. I pieced the scarves on both of the kids, I also pieced a lot of the leaves in the different leaf piles. There is a small leaf pile by the boy that you can't see that well. I popped a lot of the floating leaves as well. The tree was hand drawn and cut out of paper. I stitched it with awesome new thread I got .. Sulky .. It is several colors wrapped up in one.. I love it! So this one had black, orange, red, yellow.. just fantastic.. I love how it looks. I popped a lot of things on this card. I tried to remember all of the Copic I used.. here you go:


Girls Clothing:  V12, V17, R21, R22
Boys Clothing: E50, E53, E55, G24, G28
Jeans for both Girl and Boy: B34, B37, B39

Challenges:
Yesterday we went to church and it was a glorious service. I know I've said before, but we are really new to this church; only being there about three or four months maybe. Yesterday, they celebrated their 25th Anniversary as a church and 20 years that Mark has been the senior pastor there. The music, the singing, the celebrating was just wonderful. I'm always amazed at the talent there. They had a full band and orchestra.. amazing. The chorus was huge and even had people that had come from out of state to celebrate with them. His sermon was great and really just touched on how society has changed over 25 years. Really makes you sit back and ponder. It was really great. They are also doing a "40 Days of Prayer" United to pray for a great awakening.. which is really what we need in America and all across our great world. So, I picked up a prayer guide and each day, starting on Monday, September 24th and concluding on Friday, November 2nd it gives you a focus for your prayer that day and a scripture. The ending is right before the 2012 Presidential Election. I have really enjoyed being a part of this church and to learn and grow in my spirituality. I have a lot to learn and a lot of growing to do, but each day I am in awe of the glory of our God and the beauty and goodness he has given us. Kevin is such a blessing in my life having shown me the way back to the Lord. I look forward to the day when he is home with us, we are married and truly become a family. I look forward to going to church with him each Sunday and growing with him.

On a side note, there is a wonderful story and giveaway from Keren Tamir. God is so good Keren and may he bless your many days ahead with good health and happiness. Read her story on her blog, Expressing From My Heart and Soul. She is an beautiful soul and just by reading your post you will see what I mean.  And I agree with her.. we need a little more love and caring in this world of ours. Tell someone you love them today.. or show them. God bless you all and have a wonderful week!
