Cupcake: Proverbs 10:20-21

Happy Sunday dear friends. I hope you had a good week. I am so glad that you could join us for another challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ.

This week  it is Grace who chose the verse for the challenge. The verse she chose comes from the book of  Proverbs 10:20-21.

"The tongue of the righteous is as choice silver, the heart of the wicked is worth little. The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of understanding."
Those of you who follow my blog know that we have been blessed with 8 wonderful children (now adults) and that I am a grade school teacher in a Catholic School. One of the phrases that I used then and still use today with the little ones (some big ones too!) "Use your nice words." Do we use our lips to praise others and especially to praise God? Tonight at Mass I had the readings. Before I head up to the podium I always say a silent prayer that He might use my lips and my voice to proclaim His words. I also say that prayer when one of our adult children come over to "talk" to us about something important, asking that we (my DH and I) use words that He wants us to use.

I think that is why this challenge site is so important to me - we try to use our craft to proclaim a few of His words every week. Thank you for thinking it is important to you too. 

Create a card/ project that encourages and use a touch of silver.

For this fun girly card I chose to use two stamp sets from our sponsor this week MFT. I wanted to try the Sketches by Carly for the first time, it really was fun. 

Our sponsor this week is My Favorite Things with a $25 gift certificate to their store!

This scripture this week is a wonderful reminder isn't it...I hope my words are a blessing too. It is something to pray that our words would be glorifying to him.

Your card is darling!! I just love the sweet image and all the texture you added to the yummy cupcake.

Have a great day!!

Your card is just adorable Miesje! I love how the icing looks down right real and it's making me hungry! Maybe I'll get a cupcake today as we are off to our DD's to celebrate her 36th bd! Loved reading your reminder on this week's verse! Have a wonderful week!

I really love the scripture and devotional this week. I think the tongue is the most powerful muscle in the body with its power to wield words!

Sabrina aka okimom2girlz said...

Miesje, you brought a smile to my face just by looking at your sweet card!! Love what you tell your student too, such a great thing to install in children. There is so much hatred going on even in childred that I think it is important to teach them that "nice words" are important. Thanks for sharing!! Hungs and blessings, Sabrina
