Crafters of Faith Blog Hop

To God who gives our daily bread
A thankful song we raise,
And pray that he who sends us food
May fill our hearts with praise.
Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)

Welcome to the first Crafters of Faith Blog Hop! We are so blessed to have you stop by and celebrate the beauty of AUTUMN with us! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together! If you are just visiting and would like to hop with us, welcome! If you hopping along already, you should have arrived from Darlene's blog.

This month, our hostess is Carol S! She gave us a wonderful Harvest challenge and here is what she asked us to create: "I love FALL, the colors and the smells! I would like to propose that we make a card with fall colors, it should include fruits and vegetables to remind us of the harvest. When my kids were small, I canned peaches and pears, made pickles and such. So much fun to open those jars in the dead of winter! I am looking so forward to the fall festival of Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). To Biblical historians, this is the actual time of Christ's Birth and many people believe this will also be the season of HIS return. Blessings All!"

To celebrate in this glorious season upon us, here is the card I created for you:

I created my card using a stamp set from Our Daily Bread. Our Daily Bread is a stamp company that specializes in Christian images, Scripture verses, and inspirational quotes. An online friend (Judy) loaned this stamp set to me some time ago... and I love it! I just wish that my coloring skills could do justice to the gorgeous array of fruits in the bowl.

Here's the inside of my card:

From here, continuing hopping to Carol W's blog to see what Autumn splendor she has waiting for you! We also have a special little giveaway for one lucky hopper today and you can find that on Kelly's blog - the last stop on the hop!

Thank you for stopping by today! In this glorious season of Fall, and the wonders of the earth changing to gorgeous colors .... in a time of gratitude and thanksgiving ... we wish many blessings for you!

Beautiful!!! What's this hogwash about your coloring of the fruit? You've nailed it! (especially the bananas-they look real) Love all the rich colors together and the Psalm is perfect! I'm so glad that we're in the COF together.
