Frieda's Flowers: Philippians 4:6-7

Welcome back for another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

This week our very sweet and busy and talented and wonderful Lisa challenges us with this verse from Philippians 4:6-7.

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
I am at peace right now. Through the many ups and downs of life I treasure those times when my heart is at peace. Perhaps because the older I get I understand better that all of life there are periods of peace and periods of unrest and anxiety. Last week I shared on my blog that I talk to God a lot in my daily life. I believe that helps me get through those more anxious times because I know that I am not alone. And when I am really thrown into a tailspin by something very difficult I know I can pray and I also know I can call on others to pray with and for me. I truly am never alone and my periods of peace are even more treasured.

This week Lisa asks us to create a project with a different kind of peace... piece... as in paper piecing. Use paper piecing in the main image of your card/project.

I made this card using a new stamp that I just got from The Craft's Meow, this is the online store that was just opened my our very own Lisa - you really need to check it out! I paper pieced the dress and the socks, collar, and sleeve cuffs. Talk about some fussy cutting! I cut out the entire image and popped her up. She is such fun to color too.I ran the purple panel through the Cuttlebug with the Spellbinder's daisy impressibility. I sponged the green and colored some white Prisma flowers. Frieda is really fun to play with.

Our sponsor this week is Technique Junkies Newsletter with a full year's subscription. AND Lisa, our design team sister has also opened up a new store called the Craft's Meow with some very cute stamps!!!  She has decided to offer a second prize this week.....a set of the three Little Frieda stamps to one of our players!!!
