Dear God Series #3

Good morning!

Today I am combining 2 different challenges into one card. (That's a first for me, I think.) is asking us to make a project related to Back To School.

365 Cards is asking us to use a sign in our project.

Voila! Here is my card.... and as an added Bonus, I've used it in my own series of cards called, "Dear God." Fun, fun, fun!

The papers used in this project are DCWV Nana's Nursery Baby Girl. I don't know if you can tell by the photo, but the flowery paper is glittery. Oooooo, pretty glitter....

I used DJ Inkers graphic for the signpost and DJ Inkers font called "DJ Signpost". I love my PrintMaster, and that's what I used to print the image. The sign says, "Back To School."

The sentiment to the right says, "Dear God, Please Bless Our School. Amen."

Oh, and I used the Treading Water punch for the edge.

On most of my paper projects I use Elmer's Glue Sticks. To get the paper border to stick to the glittered paper, I had to use Fiskar's Photo Tabs. They are great too, and I sure do go through them!

Have a fun day!


  1. Love your card and color combo, but the sign...ugh!, means I have to go back to work tomorrow, summer vacation is over. I so love staying home and having stamping as my first priority!

  2. Awwe, what a sweet card. Great job!! (I am not looking forward to school yet, we still have 15 days! haha)

  3. Love the colour combo, and that glittery paper is great!

  4. Super card, lovely sentiment and adore the glittery paper.

  5. Hi Janis, thanks for your comments. I used the tutorial at Splitcoast to make the flower and it has a video! Be sure to use very strong tape to secure it when you push it down or it will pop apart. Also, I used glue dots around on the underside of the petals to make sure it stays in place. Good luck, anxious to see you that you do!

  6. Pure cuteness!!! LOVE that paper stack and the sign stamp is so neat!

  7. love that signpost, Janis! nicely done on the double challenge today

  8. well, what a perfect combo of challenges! Your card is fabulous! I'm always pretty pleased with myself when I can combine challenges, I'm not soo good at it sooo yahoo for you! I have a true appreciation of challenge combining when someone does it :)

  9. Thanks for the Back to School inspiration. I need to do a few of those and just couldn't think. I looked at your card and the ideas started up! :)
