Father: Ephesians 6:2-4

Happy Sunday and thank you once again for joining us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!

This week our sweet Lisa chose the verse and the challenge. The verse she chose comes from the book of Ephesians 6 2-4.
"Honor your father and mother"--this is the first commandment with a promise: {3} "so that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth." {4} And, fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord."

This week's challenge is to make a Father's Day card... or a card praising our Father in Heaven. I chose to make a Father's Day card for my amazing dad! The stamp I chose is perfect for this card. It has the words Love, Sacrifice, Integrity, Honor. These words are synonymous, these words talk about my dad and the way he lives his life and loves his wife.  

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamps with this adorable stamp set called "Elephant Love".

Hey sweetie, hope you're enjoying your break! How hard is it to have a good weather day in Florida??? From your family pictures my guess would be it is easier than sometimes in Michigan. :) Have a great week! Oh, and love the card especially that center strip, it sets off the sentiment nicely.
