Heartelt Thanks: 1 Corinthians 10:17

Hello again, it is Sunday and I am so glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture! Before we get on with it I would like to take a moment to think of all of our friends and family who are being effected by hurricane Irene. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

This week I am the hostess and the verse I chose is 1 Corinthians 10:17.

"Because the loaf of bread is one, we, though many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf."
Isn't it amazing and heartwarming when there is a crisis facing our friends somewhere in the world we are all gathered together to pray for those effected. Some send monetary gifts, some send food and necessities, some leave their homes and offer themselves to help. And most of us pray for them. That is what this verse is about - all of us offering whatever we can for the good of others. Please read the full devotion on the SSIC home page.

The challenge this week ties into this verse - different aspects to put together a nice card or project. So this week it is a recipe challenge - choose at least 3 of the following for one card. (ribbon, button, a swirl, hat pin, brad, charm, popped up image)

I did have fun with this card. I stamped the flowers twice, first on the vanilla and then on the DP from Echo Park. I cut those out and put them on the vanilla. I love paper piecing! I used some cut up fibers for the center of the flowers and glued them on. There are a couple of brads on the corners of the image panel. The sentiment was also slightly popped up. Fun and easy.

Our sponsor this week is Sweet and Sassy Stamps.
