Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend. I was not feeling well at all yesterday so I didn't accomplish much in the way of housework, crafting or blog hopping. I hope today I am feeling better since it is my oldest daughter's birthday!! Happy Birthday Nicki! I hope I can make her day special.

Anywho...Today I wanted to share the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge which is being hosted by the dear sweet and ever so talented dt sister Randi.

Randi chose the verse: Isaiah 53:5 (KJV) But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: The chastisement of our peace was upon Him; And with His stripes we are healed.

When I think of my daughters and the small gifts I have bought for her, there is nothing bigger or more special from the gift God has given through Christ's death and resurrection. We did not deserve it but it is through His Grace that he died. It is through his suffering that we can have eternal life if we believe in Him. What a gift!!!
Randi's challenge this week is
In some manner use stripes on your card, project, or Layout.

Today I have two cards to share with you.
The first uses a sneak peak from Our Daily Bread Designs using the Living Bread stamp set to be released on July 1 and the Mojo Monday Sketch.
