Striped Skirt and a Simple Card Gone Mad

got me in the mood for stripes today!

     I pulled out all this beautiful striped paper I had been scared of.

I was - GOING - TO - USE - STRIPES - TODAY!!!! 

Stripes scare me, because they are so, well...straight!  You can tell if they are not cut right.
     I'm not a "color in the/cut on the line" kind of gal.  I am a "get as close in there as possible" kind of gal.  I eyeball everything and am so grateful God uses me in the creative world.  I wouldn't have made a safe surgeon. ;)
  JustRite Friday's Challenge 054 sketch started me on the right path by giving me a layout I could use!  I love this sentiment from JustRite's Simple Blessings.  Get it while you still can...it's a great deal!

I started off with a simple card.  Don't ask me what happened, but it spun out of control from there!  I went from making a simple card to making a project card with a scripture tag holder and mini notebook.  This time, going mad was a good thing! :)

    I wanted to make something special for my daughters' Sunday School "Part-Time" teacher.  I'm excited to have something cool to give him!  He is passionate about God's Word, and I know he will pass these out.
    I am also entering this in the ODBD Stamping in Time Challenge.  It calls for using a tag, and I've got tons of tags in this set! :)

Thank you for hanging out today! :)
