SSCC Plans for You!




Hello Everyone!! Today it is time for another Stampin Sister in Christ Challenge and Chris is our hostess this week.

For the challenge she chose the scripture:
Psalm 139:13 For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made: I know that full well.

Her challenge is: Use the talents you have been given to create a card or project that is knit together (stitched- faux or real).

What a great challenge and verse! It is amazing to realize that God formed every part of us for a distinct purpose, and He makes no mistakes! We are fearfully and wonderfully made!!! Have you ever wondered at the miracle that healing from every day scratches and colds really is? God made our bodies with incredible healing abilities! Think about the miracle of birth... it still amazes me to see pictures of a very young fetus... at a very early term, that baby is all there... fully visible and functioning.. and just the way God planned! I decided to use Our Daily Bread designs May release set, "For the Graduate", choosing the Jer. 29:11 verse to go along with the thoughts on God's plans for each of us. I also used the Iron Works Borders set and cut out two.

I am also entering this in the Totally Gorjuss Challenge - stitching.
