Friends: Ephesians 5: 8-9

Good morning - I hope you Sunday is starting off wonderfully. I really love weekends, so many great moments to treasure. Thank you for joining us for another challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ!



This week I am bringing you the challenge based on Ephesians 5: 8-9 - to read my full devotion please stop by our home page.

“You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light, for light produces every kind of goodness and righteousness and truth.”


On the main page I spoke of darkness that sometimes invades our lives and the light of Jesus that can bring us out of that darkness. Right now there is a family in our school that needs prayers to help them out of the darkness. Their 9 year old daughter (a friend of my granddaughters') has had her leukemia come back. She had it when she was in Kindergarten and now it is back. Please keep Laura and her family in your prayers. This really is shaking their faith right now. Thank you!

For the first card I stamped a couple of butterflies on white card stock and then cut them out. I used some of GKD wonderful patterned paper packs for the back panes. The half circle and tag were stamped lightly with a leafy branch and I heat embossed the sentiment.

For the second card I found the challenge over at JUGS to create a faux embossing card - well, I had not even heard of that before so I decided to try it and since I have another granddaughter birthday this week I chose to make her a card. Cool background isn't it? 

The challenge this week is; "to use both dark and light. Opposite colors; black/white, brown/ivory, deep blue/baby blue, red/pink etc."

This week's sponsor is Pizzazz Aplenty  with a $10 surprise package. 

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 and have a wonderful week surrounded with God's love.
