FAITH {POP Challenge 21 Midway}

This month our theme for Challenge #21 {Midway} at Path of Positivity is 

FAITH

Faith is like radar that sees through the fog. 
~Corrie Ten Boom, Tramp for the Lord

I used the following beautiful image from FRESH BREWED DESIGNS - just click on the name of the image below to take you directly to Fresh Brewed Designs' Online Shop:



The image has been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The bling and design papers are from my stash. The flourishes have been stamped with Chiswick acrylic stamps.

The folded embellishments have been created with circle punches.  I have used the following {Doing Life} T6 Cylinders Template for the shapes for the candle image. 



The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  
  



We are extremely pleased to announce that Sue K. is our GDT for this challenge. Sue has just recently dipped her foot into the world of being on teams but she is a great designer and we are lucky to have her!
  • The sponsors and prizes for this challenge are:
    • A prize package of a $7 gift certificate to the Pickled Potpourri Designs store (good for any digital product), from our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the DT deems most inspiring of the bunch.
    • Three digital images from Fresh Brewed Designs for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants.
    • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital Stamps for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
There will also  be:
  • One digital designer paper (made to order in a few different ways) from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles for one lucky voter who leaves a comment.
  • One digital sentiment for every single person who enters the challenge.

Hope you will play along this month, so come on link your FAITH creations to Path of Positivity Challenge No.21. Can't wait to see your creations.

  48. Hallo, Desire!!! So lekker om weer by jou in te loer nadat ek vir omtrent 4 weke nie aan my rekenaar geraak het nie!!!! Ek hou so lekker saam met die kinders vakansie en doen allerhande ander dingetjies ook nog, dat daar eenvoudig nie tyd was vir kaartjies maak en blogbesoeke nie!!! Ek is besig om in te haal en op te vang wat ek als gemis het hier in Blogland!!! Ek het nou lekker hier by jou gekuier en jou pragtige kaartjies van die laaste paar weke so geniet!!! Jou werk is so uniek en ek kan sien jy spandeer geweldig baie tyd aan jou projekte!!! Ek wil sommer ook nou al vir jou 'n baie geseende Kersfees saam met jou geliefdes toewens. Ons vertrek Maandag Kaap toe vir die kerstyd, so ek sal eers weer in die nuwe jaar kaartjies maak en blogs besoek. So alles wat mooi is vir die volgende twee weke - ek loer weer vroeg in die nuwe jaar in!!!!
    Baie groete uit George en veilig ry as julle dalk op die pad gaan wees!!! Geniet ook die Vrydag more en die naweek!!
