Layers of Color Tea Party Blog Hop

EDIT: The contest is now over and the winner announced here.


Welcome to Layers of Color's
Summer Release 2011
Tea Party Blog Hop

I'm so glad you can join the LOC team for today's blog hop.
Layers of Color Blog Hop - Join our New Release Party on July 11th!

If you came from Melisa's blog, then you came at the right place. If not, check the list below for the right order so you don't miss the projects the LOC team has prepared for you :-). Here are some things you may want to know:
  • LAYERS OF COLOR SUMMER 2011 NEW RELEASE are now available exclusively at LOC online boutique)

  • A buffet of delicious sweet DESIGNER PROJECTS!The steaming hot Grand Opening of 10 NEW STAMP ART GALLERIES! (Also enjoy join our FLICKER Gallery)
  • ALL details on Layers of Color blog!

My card uses the Encouragement clear art stamps that fit well inside the many Spellbinder-coordinating cling art stamps that LOC already has. I used the Garden Wall, which was colored with Copics.

This set is very special to me because the verses and quotes I included in it all have ministered and continue to minister to me in some way. I meant them to encourage those who are facing life difficulties by directing their thoughts away from their situation and hardships, and toward Christ who is greater than anything we may face in this world. The Mighty Savior is able to bring peace, help and comfort, even when our situations do not change. And we can trust Him to be ever-faithful, never-changing and to do all things for our good. That truth has carried me through many challenges in my life, for which I am forever thankful to Him who is worthy.

  9. It's one of my favorite sets of the release. Thanks so much for putting word of God in LOC rubber!!! The "word of God is living, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."!!
