Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope those in the USA are enjoying the Labor Day Weekend and everywhere else is just enjoying the weekend.  This is our last weekend at the campground and soon it will be back to the daily grind.  The 2 weeks we have been eventful and fun.

Anywho...I am popping back in with the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge which is being hosted by my dearest friend and uber talented dt sister Grace.  I was so blessed to be able to visit with Grace when she came to New York for her father in laws funeral.  It was nice to give her a hug in person!!!

Grace chose the verse:
John 4:10, 13-14 (New International Version) Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water." Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

What a gift salvation is...God does not promise that Life would be easy if you accept His gift of Salvation but that you would feel whole and full and complete.  Jesus died and paid a price for us so that we may be clean and someday go to be in Heaven with Him.  Have you drank of the Living water where you will no longer be thirsty or are you still looking for something you just can't seem to find to make you happy.  Accept Jesus and you will no longer be thirsty.  He will never leave you or forsake you!!  The rough times are much easier when you have Christ.

Grace's challenge to all of us at Stampin Sisters in Christ:
Create a card or project that refers to water in some way, whether in image or sentiment.

Here is my take on the challenge:

My card uses the new release  Never Thirst from Our Daily Bread Designs which is perfect for today's "Water Challenge"  The dp is Basic Grey Capella.  The die for the sentiment is labels 13 from Spellbinders.  The butterflies are created with a MS butterfly punch.  The pearls are ZVA Creative.  The ribbon is satin and from May Arts.  The lace is from a RAK from my dear friend Sabrina.  Thanks Sabrina!!!

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: 

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