Stampin Sisters in Christ Be Strong and Courageous



Hello Everyone!! Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there!!!

Today it is time for another Stampin Sister in Christ Challenge and the sweet and talented Linda Lucas is our hostess this week.

For the challenge she chose the scripture:

John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

Her challenge is to create a card or project using any shades of the colours brown blue and white.
Be sure to stop by the Stampin Sisters in Christ Blog to read Linda's devotional thoughts on this Scripture! We were created to worship, and our main purpose on this earth is to enjoy God and to bring Him glory. He made us in His image and put His Spirit within us when we accepted Him as our Savior. Every facet of our being yearns to worship God. God isn't concerned with where we worship Him... it doesn't have to be in a fancy building... and He isn't concerned with our music choices, how we dress, etc. What He wants is our hearts to yearn for Him and to adore and worship Him from our spirits, because we have the truth (Christ), and Christ has set us free! I hope this is true for you today!

Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp. The prize will be this adorable set

Card Recipe:
stamps: Scripture Collection 3 from Our Daily Bread Designs
Paper: SU! Close to Cocoa, Parisian Breeze
Accessories: Spellbinder's mega ovals and scalloped ovals, ZVA Creative pearls, Prima, Sewing Machine

This is beautiful Grace!! I just love the Baja Breeze and Parisian Breeze paper (great minds think alike...tee hee). The verse in the mega scallop is perfect as is your stitching. What a comfort to know he is wherever we are! I hope you have a great Mother's day and a great time away.
