TESC87 For Pastor Joe

October 16th, 2009

It’s time for another fun sketch from Taylor – TESC87.  This card fought me every step of the way…not because there was anything particularly difficult about the sketch…I just couldn’t seem to make anything work.  I started this card and totally messed it up and decided to do a Christmas card instead.  The Christmas card turned out so ugly I couldn’t bring myself to post it.  I needed this card for last night so I went back and started this one over again and had several problems with it, but here it is!  *phew*


October is Clergy Appreciation Month so our church family is doing a couple of special things for our Senior Pastor and our Worship Pastor.  The choir had a little reception for Pator Joe last night before practice so Curt asked me to make a card for him to take to Joe.  We are so blessed to call Joe and his wife Pam our friends, so I was more than happy to create a card for him…not sure why it turned into such a struggle…maybe it was just the deadline.  I’m not a good stamper under pressure.

Card base is Basic Black cardstock.  Designer paper is from the TE Christmas Key Ingredients and seemed perfect for the Worship Pastor/Choir Director.  Sentiment is from SU God’s Blessings (as is the inside sentiment) and it was stamped on Poison Ivory cardstock and die cut with the Spellbinders Labels 1 die.  Ribbon is from my stash and the finishing touch is some black and red KaiserCraft pearls.

Here’s a view of the inside.

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up:tesc87-inside-custom.jpg
