This weeks...oops! LAST week's S & S Midweek Throwdown Challenge was to make a card that is "white on white with a pop of color." I have to admit something here. When I read the challenge I actually snickered a little because this has been a favorite technique for me lately and I had just posted a card to the OWH Facebook page using this technique a few days previously. Be assured, I know these things are planned several weeks in advance and that it had nothing to do with me but it made me wish that I had waited a few more days to post the picture! Bummer...I now had to make another card...using my pet technique! lol
So, humor me, I am going to post both pics here since they both meet the challenge. The first is my submission and the second is my original.
The only element that I think anyone would question is the origin of the the sentiment stamp in photo #2. It was purchased as a single image (I love only paying for what I know I will use for sure) from Verve Stamps. This has since become my favorite verse, paired with the verse following it which says: "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are the household of faith." Galatians 6:10. I really feel that these verses sum up my mission with Operation Write Home and can also be an encouragement to our heroes as a reminder of why they do what they do.
Do you have a favorite verse that reminds you of your purpose in life? I would love to hear it via the comment section! I will send a personal reply to each and every one.
Happy Stamping and God Bless!
