SSIC - A Simple Recipe Challenge

Good morning *Ü*  It's time for another fun challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.   Our challenge hostess is Miesje who shares this verse:
Scripture: 1 Corinthians 10:17 – Because the loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.”  Miesje shares a wonderful devotional on the challenge blog, so be sure to hop over and read that--you will be blessed!

The challenge is an easy  Recipe Challenge - choose at least 3 of the following for one card. (ribbon, button, a swirl, hat pin, brad, charm, popped up image)
We've been pretty busy at our house these last few days, putting up a new outter wall where our garage door used to be, pouring concrete and adding tar paper and then yesterday we put siding up.  So hot out too, and today was almost unbearable being outside for very long at one time as it's so smokey!  We've had 3 fires burning in our area for the last several days, due to lightning.  I live in Oregon's High Desert, so it's pretty dry anyways.  In fact, my hubby's friend has a wheat field that just burned about $40,000 worth of crop this week.  Lots of homes have been evacuated of course.  Please say some prayers for them... I know they'd be appreciated.  The sun last night was FIREY RED...   I tried to get a picture but didn't capture the color.  Anyways, I am thankful I can go inside where the A/C keeps it nice and cool (and fairly smoke-free) all is well.  My thoughts and prayers also go out though to those dealing with Hurricane Irene on the east coast.  

Well, not much of an excuse, but guess I've had a lack of mojo lately for creating cards, so I don't have one for today's challenge post, but wanted to invite ya to come over and play along.  Our sponsor this week is Sweet n' Sassy Stamps and one player will win a $10 gift certificate to the Sweet n' Sassy store by playing in this week's challenge
Bee creative...Ink Something!

Oh Kris - I do hope your mojo comes back soon. It does not help when there is so much going on around you. Praying for you
