Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge...And a Birthday Blog Hop!!!

Thank you for joining us for this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge and for Lisa's Birthday Blog Hop!!! We're going to start out with Lisa's party, then we'll head into this week's challenge! If you came to my blog from Ceal's blog, then you're on the right track, if not, please head back to SSCC if you want to join in the birthday fun!

First, we've got balloons for Lisa's party! We picked green because it's Lisa's favorite color!
Next is the cake!!! Isn't this cake so much fun?!? I just love these fun designs of cakes! They can be awesome inspirations for great cards, too!

I made this card for Lisa's birthday and it's also the card for our challenge this week, which is hosted by the lovely Randi!


Here are the details of the challenge:

Scripture:
Matthew 2:11 "After coming into the house they saw the Child with Mary His mother; and they fell to the ground and worshiped Him. Then, opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh."
Matthew 7:7-11: "Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in Heaven give what is good to those who ask it."

Challenge:
Make a card, LO, or project that includes an image of gift/s or giving gifts somewhere in it

Sponsor and Guest Designer:

Next stop on your birthday blog hop is to Kathy and don't forget to stop by and wish Lisa a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I'm looking forward to seeing your card at the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge blog this week!

Blessings!

Love the card, it looks great and that little baker is all set to make another one of those cakes once we've eaten up the first one. I would love to have a cake that shape at a party one day, wouldn't it be so much fun? Glad that Lisa gets to have one at her 'party.'
