Happy Friday!!! Phew! The weekend is upon us!!
I am sorry if I have not been around to comment on all of your blogs, the flooding, commitments and computer glitches really ate a lot of my time the past few days. Hopefully, I can get to you today!!

Today I would like to share a card I made for the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge. using the Our Daily Bread Designs Friendship stamp set and a sneak peek set from ODBD called Blessed Christmas.


Laurie Gatton was the hostess this week at Stampin Sisters in Christ and she chose the scripture:

I Chronicles 16:34 “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” (NIV)

The challenge was:
Make a card that expresses your thankfulness for someone or something they have done, or that encourages someone to be thankful.

I used the Our Daily Bread Designs Friendship stamp set and a sneak peek set from ODBD called Blessed Christmas. I used the Mojo 110 sketch.


Card Recipe:
Stamps : Our Daily Bread Designs- Friendship and sneak peek to be released Nov 1- Blessed Christmas
Paper: Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Spellbinders pendant die, Spellbinders Circles, SU Scalloped Oval, Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder, ZVA Flourished Pearls, Hero Arts Pearls, Baja Breeze Ribbon from SU

Yesterday I received some Happy Mail from my dear sweet friend and dt sister from Inky Impressions, Kristine Breach!! Kristine is also one of the founders and Senior Dt members of the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge. When things were very frustrating for me yesterday....she brought a true smile to my face and a glow in my heart. Look at these goodies!! Isn't she just so talented and sweet. She also sent me an ornament kit that I can't wait to play with. Thanks Kristine!!!

Don't forget that today is the last day for a chance to win my blog candy. Here is the link for those who are interested. The winner will be announced sometime on Monday.

Tomorrow I will be back with the Saturday Spotlight Challenge and on Sunday I will be back with the Our Daily bread Designs New Release Blog Hop!!

Thanks for stopping by today!! I so appreciate you all!! Thanks for your comments!!

Making friendship with good person is good thing.But after making that we have to maintain that it's so tough thing.So to maintain with that to girl we have to give them gift of cards and chocolates as well as flowers also.
