Happy Sunday Everyone!  I hope you all are enjoying your weekend!  I know I am...lots of family time.  We put up our tree yesterday.  The girls are just so excited.  Nothing like the excitement of a child.

Anywho today it is  time for another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.

This week's challenge host is the dear and sweet Patti.  Patti chose the verse:
Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. ~Ephesians 4:29 NLT
Patti's challenge is:
"A Way with Words". Create a card or project that will compliment, encourage, or cheer someone in need of uplifting.

For my creation, I decided to make a Christmas Thinking of you card for my dear friend Mark who recently lost his wife.  Mark will greatly miss Ruby this Christmas and I want to let him know he is consistently in our thoughts and prayers.

I used the You will Find Refuge  for the chickadee image and Flourished Christian Symbols set from Our Daily Bread Designs for the sentimentThe designer paper is Basic Grey Curio.  This is sort of CAS for me but I think it does better for a guy.

 For more inspiration, please visit my dt sisters: 

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

For the full devotional and challenge details please visit the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge.
