So far, so good! =) I'm ready with my one challenge entry for this week! Yea!
The ladies at Stampin' Sisters in Christ have a wonderful challenge that posts every Sunday. One of the DT chooses a scripture, writes a bit of encouragement, and then selects a challenge for the week based on all of that. I really enjoy reading through these encouraging words and the cards made by the DT and other challenge participants are so lovely!!
I have entered several of these over the past year, and I hope to enter every one of them this year! A bit ambitious, probably, since my 'realistic' goal is to make a card for one challenge per week, and there are so many other inspiring challenges out there! We'll see how it goes! =)
For this week, Challenge #121, the scripture chosen is Phillipians 2:3-4:
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
The challenge is to make a 'Thinking of You' card.
This is made with the second half of the digi DP CS (from the City Slickers kit at Everyday Mom Ideas) I used for the last card I posted . And again the photo was taken with the flash so there is a glare. (Sorry! =( )
I stamped the swirl from the SU! Friendship Blooms set right onto the DP with SU! Real Red ink. The sentiment is from the SU! Three for You set, stamped in Basic Black on white CS (from my stash), matted on a piece of SU! Real Red. The flower is also from the Friendship Blooms set, stamped with Basic Black onto white CS, cut out, accented with a Filigree flower from SU! and held on with a colored brad from my stash. Then I popped it up with a dimensional. The ribbon is a double faced satin left over from my 'crafting days' of years gone by. I tied three knots in it, then glued it down with two sided sticky tape. Et voila!
These aren't colors I usually do well with, but I'm really pleased with this card. I'll be sending it to a friend who's been having a tough time in life the last several months. I hope it will be a ray of sunshine in the midst of the clouds.
Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed and beautiful day!!
