Today is Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. Ceal chose II Chronicles 7:14. An awesome Scripture to remind us of how powerful prayer is and how the Lord desires for us to come to him. Isn't it amazing that the Creator of the universe wants to have fellowship with us and wants to help us in every area of our lives. The wonderful thing is that Hebrews 4: 15-16 tells us we can come with confidence and find the mercy and grace we need from our Savior who understands. Isnt that just awesome!! I have very few people stamps and this was about the only appropriate one. I had this card done so I reworked it to meet the challenge. It is acutally the most appropriate of timing ( isn't that just the way God is??) because a lady in our church has been struggling with prescription drug addiction. She has gone to a rehab and so this card will go to her. I promised her that I would be praying for her and like Ceal I want her to be assured that I am doing that. I think that it is such a wonderful priviledge to pray for others. It draws us closer to the Lord , it is an encouragement to others AND it builds faith in all of us as we see the hand of the Lord working. I started with a white base and added a layer of light blue dotted swiss, then a brown layer and then stitched on the scrap of dp that I had. The image was a very old stamp that had no name on it. I water colored it and then matted it on the brown and attached it. Then matted the sentiment on the brown and blue. I had this beautiful blue silky ribbon in blue for the bow. I had this very cool button in blue& brown so I tied it on with some sheer brown ribbon. On the inside I used the MS daisy punch on the brown and then added the blue stitched and then added the sentiment which I matted on the brown and popdotted up. On the opposite page I made a little pocket out of the brown and the last little piece of the dp. The pocket is for a pair of earings. The reason for that is because a couple years ago when we went to womens retreat she bought me a pretty pair of red jeweled earrings. It was the start of a friendship.
