Courage–MFTWSC #144


Hi, everyone, I’m back again with this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


I started this card with a Primitive Cream card stock base. Then I trimmed a Kraft card stock layer and cut out Die-namics Peek-a-Boo Chevrons on the side. I adhere some Jellybean Green card stock on the base so it would show through the chevrons and popped the layer up on foam. Then I cut out a Die-namics Vertical Greetings die cut and stamped it with a sentiment from the coordinating set, DC Vertical Greetings, with Kraft ink and popped that up on foam as well. Next I cut the oak leaf and a couple of acorns from Die-namics LJD Fall Foliage and stamped them with their coordinating images. I used Jellybean Green ink for the leaf and rocked and rolled the edges. The acorns were done with Kraft ink and Hot Fudge ink. I used the rock and roll technique on the leaf, then tied them all together with hemp cord. I adhered that with hot glue and finished off with some enamel dots. Thinking I might need an enamel dot intervention? Nah, I love ‘em too much :)

The inside has another sentiment from DC Vertical Greetings.


And that’s it! Hope to see you back tomorrow for Day Two Teaser!

  1. Oooh, this is perfection! LOVE the leaves and acorns paired with the cut-out chevron pattern! Gorgeous work, girlfriend!

  2. One measly little comment? On the card I needed most today? Don't people know what I'm going through? Don't they appreciate that this is an angel moment? Serendipity to the nth degree? Holy Spirit speaking through Barb Anders and MFT stamps? Don't they hear the horns? See the sky opening, stars shooting, seas calming? Today was a re-learning courage day, rediscovering strength day; finding out how strong the tea can get day. Thank you Barb. I may still have a cry or two, but they'll be a little shorter and there will be a smile in there too! Ya just never know when a card will hit home!


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
