Laurie Gatton is our host this week, and the scripture she shared is I Chronicles 16:34 “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Being the songleader that I am, this song popped right into my head and I'm even singing it now. It's an awesome song by Chris Tomlin, and taken right from scripture which I believe every bit of is "God-breathed, or God-inspired" - I am sooo thankful that God loves me and wants what is good for every one of his children.
The challenge for this week is to make a card that expresses your thankfulness for someone or something they have done... OR to make a card that encourages someone to be thankful. What a wonderful thing to do! There are so many people that I need to make thank you's for, but I'm sharing one I made for my pastor & boss, to thank him for being a servant of God as a pastor, and to thank him for being a wonderful boss. Isn't October boss' day too? Hmmm, I think I missed that one, so I hope this makes up for it, LOL.
Isn't this image of Jesus amazing?! I love the soft expression in his face and the slight tilt of his head... and then to stamp it up and see all the detail, LOVE IT! This set, "Jesus" is made by one of our SSCC sponsors, Our Daily Bread Designs. To make the frame, I used Label 2 Nestabilities to cut out this real Maple Wood paper from McMahon Five Designs (another one of our lovely sponsors!). I am loving this wood and it's so reasonable priced. I also bought these beautiful coffee pearls there too! Here's what I did with the inside of card.
Our sponsor this week is The Rubber Stamp Shack, so come on over to the SSCC Blog and see what fabulous stamps they are donating AND see all the wonderful cards by our Design Team! We'd love to have everyone play along! It's not required to use scripture on your projects, but you may if you want. We accept ALL styles of cards from Cutesy to vintage, grundge to elegant ...
