Clergy Appreciation Month

Did you know that October is Clergy Appreciation Month? Me neither, until I was assigned to write an article about it for Scrapjazz. Despite being a lifelong churchgoer, I hadn't even heard about Clergy Appreciation Month and had certainly never done anything special for the occasion. Time to remedy that. I definitely appreciate my pastor.  He's awesome.

Here's the card I made for Pastor Todd. I used the scraps from my goddaughters' baptism card to make the cross. I ran the base through a friend's Texture Boutique using the 'Swirls and Dots' folder, orienting it so that the dots were toward the top (in other words, upside down). I glued a cardstock butterfly in place, then added a line of glue just along the body and carefully placed a vellum butterfly on top. I gently folded up the wings to provide dimension and a sense of movement.  I'm happy with how it turned out: simple, elegant, and uplifting.    


If you have a religious leader in your life, I encourage you to take the time during Clergy Appreciation Month to show your thanks for all that he/she does!
