Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25 NIV)

Now I can welcome you to our second challenge! Our sponsor this week is Beccy's Place! Our random prize winner will receive three digital images of their choice from Beccy. We're thrilled to have her beautiful hand drawn images grace our pages ... they are created by Beccy Muir...

Paint, paper, silk, charcoal, clay, wool, fabric, fur… I’ve had my hands on all of it at some point in my life and I’m quite certain I’ll have a half-finished project on my desk and ink under my fingernails on the day I go to meet my Maker!

My paper obsession began with scrapbooking in the late 1990s and has since evolved into card-making and digital drawing.  There were a few years of decorative painting, teddy bear making and silk ribbon embroidery mixed in there too, and I still dabble in each of those crafts from time to time, but I generally gravitate toward paper, which is versatile and forgiving.

I started “doodling” little designs for cards back in 2009, which is also when I started my blog and began sharing my images with other Cardies.  From there I progressed to my very own online store selling digital drawings for cards and other paper craft projects.

Beccy's Place is offering our randomly drawn prize winner their choice of three images from the Beccy's Place collection!

Our theme for you this week is 


"The God who lives forever is your safe place. 
His arms are always under you..." 

                               Deuteronomy 33:27a NLV

Your card creation is to offer comfort...the above scripture is for inspiration.  Please use any scripture that offers a message of our theme... comfort.

Please remember that if for any reason our Linky Tool fails us, share your creation through the comments section, with a direct link to your blog post.

We look forward to seeing your creations of COMFORT shared with us here. Have a blessed week!

Introducing more of our team!

And now, I can introduce...


Hi there!  I'm Laura Corkill of Mesa, AZ.  I am wife to the most awesome husband, who is very patient with my crafting addiction, mom to the two most wonderful daughters a mom could ever want and Grammy to Tyton and Rush, the bestest grandsons ever!  I am also step-mom to two wonderful men who live in the Midwest with their families.  I have been a crafter from as far back as I can remember, trying just about everything in the crafting world at least once, but my passion for the last 13 years has been paper crafting and I don't see that waning anytime soon.

Now introducing Anne-Marie

I am wife to Ken for the past 43 years... married the day after my 18th birthday... and a year later, along came the first of our 5 children. We now have 17 grandchildren, and expect to have more....yay!  I am of Scots/Irish descent, hence the rusty hair, green eyes and freckles... and have answered to Rusty or Copperknob for most of my life... ha!  I am totally in love with patchwork quilting, scrapbooking, and card making and am always ready to learn something new.  I also love to research my family history, and spend two days a month teaching others how to research theirs.......you wouldn't believe how many skeletons I've unearthed, lol! I love a challenge, and am super-excited about being on the Design Team for Twist of Faith Cards.......can't think of a better way to meet new crafty friends!

And still more to come! What a fabulous team!

Introducing the Team!

It is my privilege to introduce you to the design team here at Twist of Faith Cards!

Introducing Pauline:

Twist of Faith Cards is my new baby... I thought it was something positive and uplifting to share, so I hope you will too!  I'm approaching my mid 40s, and a mad keen crafter of paper/card, beads and fabric.  I scrapbook, create cards, make jewellery, and often have needle and thread at work, sometimes a mix of the aforementioned!  I love sharing crafts with others, and I love the fellowship and friendship that crafting also creates.... whether it be at the same table, or across the globe!  I have a special needs daughter with multiple disabilities, and together with my hubby and wee doggie, I live in my rural hometown, in beautiful Western Victoria, in south eastern Australia.

Introducing Bonnie:

My name is Bonnie (I am known on the web as Grandma Bonnie). I live in Indianapolis, IN. I am married to my best friend who is a retired chemical engineer.  I am a stay-at-home Grandma to four wonderful grandchildren. My grandchildren are 5 years old twin boys (one is non-verbal autistic), a 3 yrs old granddaughter, and a 1 yrs old boy. They all belong to my older daughter. I also have a younger daughter and a son, both married, but neither yet have children. I love to craft cards, scrapbook and sew. I am currently on five design teams, and I enjoy them so very much. They help me keep my creative juices flowing.

Introducing Jenee

My husband of 46 years and I are allowed to share a house with 2 felines and 2 canines on 5 acres of land just outside of Rome, GA. We have three 2-legged kids who are grown and 4 wonderful grands (ages 8, 13, 16 and 18). I have crafted since I was a child, trying my hand at most all mediums from crocheting to macramé, painting to decoupage. About 18 years ago, I was introduced to scrapbooking and rubber stamping and have stuck with them. I am currently on three challenge blog design teams and a DT for an online store. Since my husband and I are both “retired,” I am blessed to have my card making and my DT activities as a means of creatively filling some of my time.  

There are more of the team to come.... I can't wait to introduce them to you!

hugs and blessings,
