Happy Sunday Everyone!! I hope you are enjoying the weekend.  Today is suppose to be our first day of sunshine after 7 straight days of rain.  Woo hoo!! I need the sun to motivate and boost my mood!!

Anywho...Today is another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.  This week, the challenge is hosted by my dear friend: Grace.

Grace has chosen the verse:
Proverbs 10:20-21 "The tongue of the righteous is as choice silver, the heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of understanding.

In the Bible God often speaks about the tongue and using it in the correct way.  Tongues that speak evil or mean or cutting words are very harmful.  How many have heard the words" "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me." This saying is so untrue. We should watch what we say, using words that lift each other and encourage one another not for hurt.

Grace has challenged us to:
Create a card/ project that encourages and use a touch of silver.
For my creation I used the fun Flower girl image from My Favorite Things, Our Sponsor this week!!  I just love these little Pure Innocence images.  They really are so fun to color!  The star behind the image is actually created using the Whimsy Shapeology Banner Pendant dies.  The flower is created with the My Favorite Things Rolled Flower die.

Card recipe:
stamps: My Favorite things- Pure Innocence Flower Girl
paper: Kaisercraft Utopia, Kraft cs, Bitter chocolate cs
Accessories: My Favorite Things Rolled Flower die, lace, Martha stewart leaf punch
Whimsy Shapeology Banner Pendant dies

The inside of my card:
