Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope everyone is having a great weekend!! Although it has been quite chilly and cloudy here, it has been going well.

Since today is Sunday, I have a new challenge for you from Stampin Sisters in Christ which is hosted by my sweet dt sister: Candace.

Candace chose the verse: Isaiah 40:8 "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever." How true this we go into spring with all the pretty flowers and the green grass, we are reminded that this is temporary for Spring and Summer but when winter comes, they are gone. God's presence and Word is here each and every day and in every circumstance, joy and sorrow. What hope we have in Him!! When others are not there, He is!!
The challenge to accompany this verse this week is: Use flowers on your card or project.

This week's Sponsor is Michelle Perkett. Michelle has so many awesome and fun digitals, check out the Stampin Sister in Christ Challenge for this week's Sponsor prize.

Here is my take on this week's challenge using Lauren Meader's Shutterfly box template, Sing to the Lord image from ODBD, and Friendship from Our Daily Bread Designs. The background is embossed in Victoria and Swiss dots Provo Craft folders. My image was water colored.

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters:
Candace , Grace , Kathy, Kristine , Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi

If you should create a card or project for this challenge, please leave a direct link here. Should you upload your creation to SC or PCP, please use the keyword SSIC35.

Card Drive:

This week my Stampin Sister in Christ dt sister, Kristine, learned of a Christian Kindergarten teacher who was in a terrible car accident. She taught her oldest daughter a few years ago. Her name is Cathy Downing.

By the looks of her car afterwards here, it's a miracle that she is alive! Angels were definitely watching over her -- God must still have a plan for her here. *Ü* Her family has set up a page at Caring Bridges network to post updates on how Cathy's doing.

Card Drive

Of course prayers are always appreciated!! But Kristine would love to hold a card drive too. She knows that there are so many caring stampers out there who's beautifully hand-made card can bless someone's life in such a positive way and so we are passing that opportunity on to all of YOU!

If you'd like to send Cathy a card, please email Kristine, to get her address. She will leave it open for the next few weeks and then she and her daughters will pass them on to Miss Cathy. We would greatly appreciate any cards that can be shared to send on to Miss Cathy to encourage her.

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments!! Have a blessed Sunday.
