Happy Friday Everyone!!! The weekend is upon us!! To begin the weekend, Wags n Whiskers is kicking off another challenge.

This week my talented and sweet dt sister Karen is asking you to use or create either a tag or bookmark. You may want to combine the tag with a card like I have below.

To play our challenges you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp as your main image to be entered into the prize drawing.

If you don't have any Wags 'n Whiskers, then it's time to go shopping!!!. The images are just too cute!!!

Once again, one of our participants will have a chance to win a stamp of their choice!!

Before I go, I want to wish a farewell and best wishes to my sweet and talented dt sister, Inge who is leaving Wags n Whiskers dt. I have enjoyed working with you Inge!! You will be missed!! See you in blogland!

For my creation I used the sketch created by dt sister Nikki that she made for
Incy Wincy. The image is Bedtime Story from Wags n Whiskers that I colored with distress inks. The paper is from Basic Grey Wisteria. The prima flower is covered with beads for some sparkle.

Card Recipe:
stamps: Bedtime Story from Wags n Whiskers
Paper: Basic Grey Wisteria, Soft Blue, MS Glitter Paper
Accessories: Spellbinders Fancy Labels,MS Lattice Border Punch, Satin ribbon, silver baubles, satin ribbon

I made this card earlier in the week but have been waiting for the right day to post it since I have had atleast two creations on each day earlier this week. I made this for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge:

Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge #28 - Colossians 3:17 - The challenge for this week is for you have free reign of what you want to do this week. But here's the deal: you are to actively do this as an act of worship to our God. Before starting, pray. Thank God for your gift. While working, feel free to pray more, or perhaps sing out to Him. Put your focus on Him and remember that it is He who gave you your gift (however good or bad you think you are at this) and remember that it makes Him happy to see you at work. Do this challenge, as if you were doing it for Christ himself! The verse for this challenge is:

Colossians 3:17 "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."

With Easter coming up, I thought this would be a nice one to make for this challenge and one that shares the true meaning of Easter.

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: Easter Blessings
Paper: Pink Pirouette dp, Pink Pirouette cs, white cs
Accessories: MS lace border punch, Spellbinders Lattice pendant, scalloped and circle dies, ZVA Creative Pearls

When I saw that my dear friend and dt sister, Angie, was Sunday's featured stamper at Splitcoast Stampers, I had to play along!!! Congrats Angie!!! I cased this card;ppuser=84051 From Angie's Awesome gallery changing my stamp to Easter Blessings from Our Daily Bread Designs, omiting the piercing around the sentiment and adding pearls, framing my sentiment with the Lattice Pendant from Spellbinders, and changing my dp to Pink Pirouette Designer Paper from SU.

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great weekend!!!

Sorry, but I had to delete my first comment. I have no idea what is going on but for some reason there is a delay every time I try to type a comment. And it does not take all of my letters :C. You have been super busy my friend. I love the first is so sweet and your trademark stitching...fabulous, but your second card took my breath away!!! Everything about this card is pure PERFECTION!!!From the choice of paper to the scripture to that yummolicious bow and the way you have framed out the scripture....AWESOME!!! You are one of the most creative people I know. Hugs and blessings, Sabrina
