 Patter, this week’s Christian Paper Crafts, Wednesday Case Artist!  Patter is known throughout the Christian paper-crafting world for her beautiful work, her devotion to her Savior, her ABC Scripture Challenge and her Faith Journaling prompts which you can also find posted at Christian Paper Crafts. She is also on the design team for CPC partner company, Our Daily Bread Designs, and she is an organizer extraordinaire, freely sharing her tips and techniques.

Patter loves the Lord and seeks to serve and honor Him in all that she does. She came to know Christ as her Lord and Savior through Bible Study Fellowship (BSF), so it is a ministry that is near and dear to her heart and one in which she serves in a leadership capacity helping others know and apply God’s Word. She and her husband have identical triplets, now in their teens and homeschooled by mom.  The household also include two Caiques parrots, Kiwi and Sugar--Patter’s “girls”-- and three Papillion pups.

Patter says, “Besides having a passion for the Lord and sharing Him with others, I am also passionate about paper crafting, and I love to help and share with other paper crafters.”

As to what she likes to do, Patter says, “I enjoy doing layouts of all sizes, cards, tags, ATCs, altered art, etc. And you will find that I stamp on almost all of my work. I love it all!”

 And if you think that’s a stretch, take a look through Patter’s gallery! It’s not a stretch. This is your invitation to join me in honoring Patter and to be inspired by her diverse and amazing gallery. Create a card, page or project inspired by what you see there. Be sure not to copy exactly: make it your own!  When uploading your card or project to the Christian Paper Crafts gallery, please use the keyword WCA109 (no spaces or commas).  When posting anywhere else online, please use the keyword CPC-WCA109. Have a blessed day!

P is for: Perseverance, perch, petals, pink, pearls, paper, pretty, packing shreds and Patter! (The three pearls in the corner of the card represent Patter's three daughters. . . pearls in a pod: triplets and yet unique!) Patter also loves journaling and handwriting on cards, so I added her name in the lower right hand corner along with some faux stitching around the edge of the card!
