Happy Sunday All!! I hope you are all enjoying the weekend!!  The weather is beautiful here.  Feels like summer!!

Today it is time for another Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge.  This week's hostess is the sweet and talented Lovely Linda!!

Linda has chose the verse:
Mark 10:27 And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. 

How many people do you know who have cancer or are being treated for some sort of illness.   When we think of them being healed, do we think of the treatments who are doing the healing or the doctors or God?  Some of the most difficult times and struggles in life can't be fixed by humans.  Only God can!!The world economy...the USA economy...the morals of our country and how our country is rejecting God can be fixed by God and not man alone.  We are too small...we are his tools.

Linda's challenge: Anything Goes!!

Here is my take on the challenge using the Joy Tree image from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The image/sentiment was stamped in distressed green (Tim Holtz).  The panel was sewn in gold to create a decorative edge.  The ribbon is dyed olive green seam binding from my dear friend Sabrina (thanks Sabrina!).  The designer paper is Basic Grey Boxer. The ornaments are K&Co. stickers that I have had in my stash for a loooooong time. The ecru lace is from Joann's. The other green lace is May Arts and it is from my dear friend Ann Vento (thanks Ann!)

I hope you enjoyed my creation.

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

This is beautiful Chris. I love the colors and have been coveting that stamp over at ODBD. It is in my cart....I like what you shared - cancer is not nice and neither is the treatment! God does have it all in His hands, for that I am very thankful! Have a good week!

Hi Chris~

Beautiful card! I love that is so unique, and wonderful. You sure gave it a wonderful place on that card...with all of those beautiful embellishments! I love the seam-binding, especially combined with is gorgeous! And, I like the ornaments...a great addition. Isn't it great how we can find treasures in old goodies?

I love what you wrote. I know that if I am to be healed...He is the one to do it! Either through the doctors I see, or through a miracle with Him alone. I haven't given up hope. I hope others won't either. Thank you for the reminder...and a glimpse of that beautiful green card!

He IS Able!
