Many Thanks: Romans 8:31b-32

Another Sunday and another opportunity to thank God for His many gifts! We were blessed with a new grandson this week! WooHoo! Thank you once again for joining us for a challenge based on scripture at  Stampin' Sisters in Christ!



This week I am bringing you the challenge based on Romans 8:31b-32 - to read my full devotion please stop by our home page.

"If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but handed him over for us all, how will he not also give us everything else along with him?”



I really had a hard time with my own challenge! LOL I find it is difficult for most people to go outside of their "comfort zone" although I am not even sure what my comfort zone is! I did use several layers and more bling then I usually do. I also made my own flower from a punch and dug out some of the silver brads I still had from SU. I think that this is about as much as I could fit on this card. Some people (Grace, Chris, Linda) have a knack for using lots on a card and it not look cluttered or sloppy. I do not have that knack.


The challenge this week is; to create a card or project that uses everything! The opposite of a CAS - toss on the embellishments and/or different papers, textures.

This week's sponsor is our very own MariLynn with this wonderful flower embellishment! I love it and you would too! 

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.

Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed both challenges this week. The scripture challenges us to both depend on God for everything we need and to remember to thank Him for all His provision in our lives. The card challenge was so fun...loved throwing on all those embellies! Great challenge and your sample is just knock-out gorgeous. Love the layout...perfect for those peeks of rhinestone swirls. Beautiful!

Hi Miesje! Your verse is such a great thought provoking one, and I thought your challenge was perfect to go with it! I am with you, it is hard to fit all those emellishments on a card...but you did it and it is so pretty and bright and cheerful!! Thanks for sharing your devotional and I can just imagine you smiling for all those little ones doing cross-walk duty! I am sure God is smiling down on you too; you are a wonderful testimony of God's love!!
