PARTNER: STAMPIN SISTERS IN CHRIST CHALLENGE
SCRIPTURE: JOHN 15:13
SPONSOR: PAPER PRETTIES
Good morning! No chit chat today, we're getting right down to our mission!
Today's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge is from the lovely Candace. Here's what she has to say: "The challenge for this week is to make a patriotic-themed card for a soldier and as a bonus, donate it to Operation Write Home, so that a soldier may be encouraged by your words of thanks. Write a special message of gratitude on the inside and sign your name. They will be distributed to soldiers who rarely get mail, or just need encouragement. Be sure to put your card in an envelope and write “Any Hero” on the front. For more information on how to make a card for “Any Hero,” click here."
The verse she chose is John 15:13 "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." WOW! Now seriously, think about that...who in this world is going to lay down his life for YOU? Our soldiers are laying their lives on the line every day for us. For our nation to be free. You know who else laid down Hhis life for you? Jesus. He died so that we could be set free from our sins. He loves us so much that he did this, without asking for anything in return. All we have to do is accept His gift of salvation. Many people reading my blog know the love that Christ has for them, but for the one reading this that doesn't, please feel free to e-mail any of our DT sisters and ask them about this gift of love.
Here's the card I created:
Stamp-Tilda with a bow & stairs by Magnolia; star by SU; sentiment by Studio G; printed dog from clip art and printed the verse
Paper-scraps I had laying around, not sure who the dp is by because I'd already used the corner with their name on it!
Others: rhinestones by Studio 18; stickles; colored with water colors
Visit SSCC and see what the other DT ladies have made! I'm sure you'll be blessed! Don't forget to join in the challenge and let a "hero" know you're thinking about them!
