Happy Sunday Everyone!!  I am back safe and sound!!  I am so happy to be home!!  I truly missed Scott, crafting and my own routine.  It was great to visit with my dear family though.

Today I would like to share a card I created for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge hosted by Rebecca!!  Rebecca is the sweetest ever and she so inspires me with her faith and ability to share what she believes despite all the hardships she goes through. I so wanted to participate in her challenge despite my lack of time or not being home.  So here is my quickie card...

Rebecca chose the verse:
Those who know your name will trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You. --Psalm 9:10
What a blessing to know that God is there for those who seek Him whether we deserve His Grace or not...All of us are sinful and do not deserve the Grace He has bestowed upon us but he promises that He
will not forsake us if we seek Him.  God did give us the choice on whether we want Him or not, however.  God gave us a soul and a mind to make choices...To me...there is no other choice to accept him as my Saviour...What a blessing to have His Salvation and know that I am not alone!!  He is with me in every circumstance.

Rebecca's challenge is:
Use things that secure! Buttons, no less then 3

Here is my take on the challenge using a sneak peak of He Will Rise from Our Daily Bread Designs to be released on March 1.  The sentiment is embossed on black on the material designer paper and cut out with a special customized Eternity die (made for ODBD by Spellbinders).


The designer paper is fabric designer paper which I purchased from Hobby Lobby.  The flourishes are cut out with a Bosskut die. The leaves are punched with a Martha  The flower on the bow is hand crocheted. I added some delish lace that I just received in a RAK from my dear friend Sabrina!  Thanks Sabrina!!

 For more inspiration for the Stampin in Christ Challenge, please visit my dt sisters:
Grace, Linda, Lisa, Peggysue, Randi (on leave), Meisje, and  Rebecca.
 
For the full devotional and challenge details please visit the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge.
We want to thank our Sponsor, Whiff Of Joy for their Support and Generous Prize! This is the adorable image being given away!
