Happy Sunday Everyone!!

Today is another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge and this week the hostess is the sweet and talented Linda.  Linda has chosen the verse:

Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. 

There is the saying "What goes in must come out".  I am very cautious with my children in what they watch on tv or do on the computer etc.  because I truly do believe that what they watch can shape who they are as human beings.  If they view violence or shows showing disrespect toward parents (some of these teen shows....yikes!) etc. this can effect how they react towards me or others.  We learn by example.  If I am polite and show respect, my children are most likely to do the same.  It is the same in our thoughts.  Sometimes our thoughts seem real, if we keep our thoughts pure, our actions will also be pure.  Not that we a are perfect and never do wrong, we are human.  

Linda's challenge is:
Make either an all white or an all cream card, a monochrome in pure tones. 

This week's sponsor is Simon Says Stamp who is offering a generously offering a $15 gift certificate to their store.

I sure hope I did my creation right since I did color my image, but the rest is cream.

 For my creation I used the Say a Prayer image from Wags n Whiskers and some acetate.  Of course I had to add lace, ribbon and pearls.  The image is framed with the Spellbinder Bead it Circles. The image is colored with copics.  The border on the bottom is punched with the Wavy border punch from EK Success.

For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: 

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

Beautiful card!!

Dawn said...

Oh my goodness Chris this is just stunning!
Love the cream and that bow and lace are perfect.
What a special card for someone really dear to you.
I also agree with filtering our children, I wasn't always the popular mom when mine were growing up- other children got to watch and do so much more (my children words)but they have all turned out to be spectacular adults that all service their communities.
