Hello All!! Happy Tuesday!! I hope you all have had a great beginning to your week!!  We had a great weekend visiting with friends as well as visiting with my brother and his family.  My only wish is that it could have been longer.  We were very blessed to have had this opportunity and for that I am thankful.

Today I am popping in to share this week's Shining the Light challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.

This week's challenge will last for two weeks and ....
Is a sketch.....

To make the challenge even more fun, we will be giving out a prize, $15 gift certificate to be used toward stamps at the Our Daily Bread Designs store!! Entries for thprize must be submitted by Sunday, August 5th at 8 p.m. EST. One random winner will be chosen and announced next Saturday. 

While it is not required to use Our Daily Bread Designs images and sentiments on your creations, we would love to see them if you have them. As a way of recognizing those who do use Our Daily Bread Designs stamps, we will again be choosing three or more of our participants  for the  Shining the Light Award . In order to qualify for this award or join the challenge, however, you must use Our Daily Bread stamps and have your submission added to Mr. Linky by Sunday, August 5th at 8 p.m. EST. If you upload your creations to Splitcoast Stampers or any other online gallery, please use the keyword is ODBDSLC117.  When creating your posts on blogs please include a link to the challenge.

Now on to my creation:
Since most of the team went more feminine on their take for the sketch, I thought I would challenge myself to a more masculine creation.  I added stitching and distressing with Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink and with a distresser.  The verse I used on this card is from Our Daily Bread Designs: Scripture Collection 1. The paper I distressed is from Bo Bunny's Timepiece Collection.

Card Recipe:

ODBD Stamps Used: Scripture Collection 1
Papers: Timepiece Collection by Bo Bunny
Accessories: Stitched Ribbon (Memory Box), Tim Holtz Clock and spinner, Spellbinders  Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles LG, tassle

I also made this creation for Stampin Sister's in Christ which is to make a card that is CAS,  Tuesday Testimonials Linking Party Always anything goes with Scripture (Scripture on the inside, and the post) , and Word Art Wednesday- use a Scripture or encouraging sentiment, or the free digi Scripture given on the site.  I added some stitching but it is very CAS for me.  The Stampin sisters in Christ challenge is based on Matt. 11:30:
"For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

I often wonder how others who are not Christian's go through life without the Guidance and comfort of knowing that God is there no matter what the circumstance.  If He died for us, what can't He do for us.  What a comfort to know that God is in Control!!  It is easy to leave it to just takes Faith.  My favorite verse pairs nicely with this week's featured verse: Trust in Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Chris - What a beautiful card! I love the distressed elements and the colors. The clock is perfect! Thanks for taking the "time" to join us at SSiC this week.

Jennipher said...

Great creation Chris and your thoughts are definitely something to ponder. I just don't understand how people can go through life denying God. In the last year I have ran across two people in cyberworld who were very quick to tell me they were atheists. Despite all I tried to do to show them Christ, it just ended up a big ole mess. But the Bible does talk about us being unequally yoked and I shouldn't of had these people in my circle of friends.
