SSiC132 - Toss on Everything!

Happy Sunday morning!!  Today’s card is for our new challenge over at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ challenge where Miesje is our hostess.  She shares from Romans 8:31b-32 “If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

… and her challenge for us is to create a card or project that uses everything! The opposite of CAS - toss on the embellishments and/or different papers, textures.

I made this card as a Thank You to a family who invited us out this week.  I’ve used a floral border embossing folder, lots of pearls from M5D, machine stitching, bows, buttons, a charm from Inky Impressions, a digi from Designed to Delight called Bloom, Grow, Dream, an SVG doily that I cut with my Cricut, a punched butterfly and I colored the image with Copics.  I could think of dozens of other schtuff I could’ve added to this like stickles, sponging or distressing, primas, and diecut flourishes but hey, we still want to see the image and not get too crowded right?  ;)  Anyways, I drew my inspiration for this card from one of Grace’s cards here.  Love this color combo… so fresh and Springy. 

Miesje shares a wonderful devotional on our challenge blog and our sponsor this week is our own Marilynn DeGroot with some fabulous handmade flowers  (there’s a picture on the challenge blog you’ll have to go see!!!)  so I hope you’ll hop on over to read and see what the other DT sisters created this week!!

Here’s a li’l peek into the Breach Family this past week…
  dad-remodel3    cards 140    cards 113    DonkBBall-1
This week was super busy for us here.

1) The first pic is my hubby in the middle of our remodel job.  I’m so proud of him as  he’s doing most of the work himself!!  The girls and I have helped with little things along the way.  Well… NOT so little things like take out the garage door and then this week we helped him get all the sheetrock through the new window—not an easy job!!   And we have 5 sheets of it up already.  *Ü*

2) Carly had her friend (and science partner) over about 5-6 evenings these past 2 weeks to work on their catapult project for science fair.  The big competition and judging was Thursday night.  Here’s a pic of their catapult, flames and all.  They won grand champion for 7th grade on their Display Board (sorry no pic of that) and got 35 out of 100 on the catapult competition.  They would’ve gotten much higher I’m sure if the spoon didn’t break off on their 2nd try :(  So they couldn’t finish their 3 rounds.  Guess all that practicing wore my cheapy, old kitchen ladle out. 

3)  Maddy had to plan, prepare and clean up after a meal for the family.  She took my recipe for meatloaves and made BBQ meatballs with it, and rice and blueberry muffins.  It all turned out really yummy!! 

4)  We enjoyed a game of Donkey Basketball at the High School.  Have you ever been to one?  Not sure if we have them every year or not, but I remember they were doing it when I was in H.S. ~ It is sooo funny!  One donkey kept kicking and then she’d bend her head down making her rider fall off over her head. 

5)  Not pictured… both girls sang solos for concerts at school Thurs. & Friday.  Carly was so nervous all week.  I think it all finally caught up to her because she was up with the throw-ups last night, and now running a fever today.  Poor girl.  Good thing it’s now SPRING BREAK and hoping she gets better by Monday so we can have some fun girly time.  I’m taking Mon-Tues. off work to be with my girls.  Please Say a li’l prayer for us that we’re all well enough to enjoy it!!   

Hope you have a great week!

Hi Kris

What a beutiful card. Very spring feeling indeed. I love that you machine stiched around the outside. Always adds a special touch. Something I've not attempted yet.
