Happy Sunday!  I hope you are having a great weekend!! 

Today I have another Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge.  This week's challenge is hosted by the talented and super sweet Linda.

Linda chose the verse:
  • As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.. Proverbs 27:17
God has blessed us with many to support us in all parts of our lives. Ones who will lift us up when we are down, share in our joys, strengthen us when we are weak, and those we can learn from.  I thank God for all the blessed blogging friends I have been so inspired by in both crafting, spiritually and in the friendships I have built.  I am thankful for my husband, my best friend, my parents, and my children, my church friends, and the list goes on and on.

Linda's challenge is: to use metal on your card.

I created this bookmark using Teddy Bear's ABC by Meljen's Designs available at Whimsy stamps.  I colored him with prismas and gamsol and added stitching.

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: 

Grace, Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi, Meisje, Rebecca, and Cindy
