Change: James 1:2-3

Lent has begun and it is a time for reflection and change. I made this card with that in mind - how I need to make some changes in my life. I am so glad you could join us for another challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ!

This week Traci brought us our challenge based on James 1: 2-3 - to read her devotion please stop by our home page, you will not be disappointed! 

"Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance."

On Ash Wednesday this past week the mass at the school where I teach had a wonderful sermon. Father talked about baseball. Spring training is beginning and for those of us who are baseball fans we eagerly await the games to begin. Then Father tied it into how the players are practicing and preparing for those games. Lent is the season where we Christians are to be preparing our hearts for Easter. We need to look at how we can be better - how we can change. I think the students got the message, I know I did.

The challenge this week is to create a card with variegated colors. This can mean a monochromatic card with various shades of one color, or a card that shows variegated as in a variety of colors, or a pop of bright colors in unison as in a bouquet of flowers. Be creative!!

This week's sponsor is -La-La Land Crafts. 

Don't forget 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!
