Hi All!! I hope you all are having a great weekend!! Ours has been good but very busy.  I am downright exhausted after cleaning out our attic (what a bunch of stuff we have accumulated...Yikes!) and numerous closets and drawers I went through.  It is a good tired though since I feel like accomplished something.

Anywho...It is time for a Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.  This week's hostess is my ever so dear friend, Grace.  

Grace has chosen the verse:

John 16:33 "These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."

In these trying days there are so many trials...we look at one natural disaster after another, a bad national economy in many countries, illnesses, and etc.  These are all devastating and scary.  With the Lord's help we can conquer.  Does this mean life will be rosy if we have God in our lives?  No!  God does not promise us a life of ease but He does promise to give us hope and a future...this hope, however may not be earthly hope but rather heavenly.  God sometimes allows us to go through trials to grow closer to Him.  If life was easy, we would not need to trust in Him.  God is in control.  All things work together for good for those who put their trust in Him.

Grace has challenged us this week at Stampin Sisters to:
Create a card / project that either says "Blessings" or uses an encouraging Scripture.

Here is my take on the challenge using a sneak peek of Our Daily Bread Designs Holiday Ornaments to be released on October 1. This stamp set coordinates with Spellbinders Holiday Tags.  I embossed the ornament with gold embossing powder and cut it out with the Holiday Tags die and my Spellbinders Grand Caliber The designer paper is from Whimsy Stamps Holiday Folly designer paper.  I made this a spin card.

I hope you enjoyed my creation.

Be sure to check out  Grace's devotional on the SSIC Blog, as I know you'll be blessed!

I need to clean out up my attic, but I'm waiting for the temps to get a little cooler, we are still in the 90's here in TX. It's a wonder what you find, things you forgot you had, teehee.

Beautiful post and card Chris!! I LOVE the window and how the ornament dangles in it! You are so talented. Have a blessed week!

Hi Chris ~ I love your card, but what I love most is what you had to say about "Trials." Brings home to me...we all have trials of some sort or another...I wonder how anyone can get along without Him in our lives!!! Thank you for your inspiration, both of them!
