Faithfulness - Matthew 11: 28-30

Another Sunday and another chance to share some scripture with you, our faithful friends. I am so glad you could join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ for another challenge based on scripture!


This week it was my turn to be the hostess and the verse I chose is Matthew 11: 28-30. Be sure to stop by our home page to read my full testimony.
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
My devotion was a bit lengthy this morning and is on the main SSIC website. Please read it there.

The challenge this week is to use everything twice: use 2 of everything you use. ie: 2 DP - 2 flowers - 2 stamps - whatever you use must be doubled 

I really felt drawn to this stamp set today - Randi's Song from ODBD. I used 2 different sheets of the DP, 2 sections of lace. Stamped the images twice, two buttons, two different die cuts. I also used some distress inks on some ivory paper and then stamped the leaf images on that before cutting them out.

Our sponsor this week is Designed to Delight with a $10 GC to the store!

Be sure to stop by my SSIC design sisters (listed on the sidebar) to see what they have to share this week:

It is always great to see you, thanks for the comments!

I am not following STV as I did last year and don't know if you had posted about your husband and mother there, but I am so sorry for your loss and glad to hear that the treatments for your husband are behind you. I checked the SSIC site and read your post and not only does God share the yoke but sometimes (like for me this morning) he reminds us that even though our burdens may seem huge, there is someone in more need and we should be aware of our blessings. I appreciate you and your work. Beautiful card this week!
