Welcome to another wonderful Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!

Our Beautiful Hostess:
PeggySue of Roses By My Window

The Scripture of Inspiration:
Matthew 27:51 "The veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom."

The Challenge:
Use torn paper technique
(just tear paper with your fingers and use it somehow on your card, but it must be torn, not cut)

Our Sponsor:
They are offering a $15 credit to their store to one random winner from our challenge!

My Card:
I've used several images from our sponsor's store. The girl is Sarah Praying (but I changed her mouth so that it looks like she is singing! My sentiment is from their Sing for Joy set, as well as the musical notes in the background and on the black torn cardstock (I used versamark ink, it's really hard to see them, though)
Be sure to check out our sponsor's site and all their adorable stamps!

I got my sketch from Sketches by Carly and will be entering this card in her challenge just as soon as I get home on Monday!

Have a blessed day!

Good morning! I'm glad you're here today! Sorry that I did not have a post last week! I'm sure I would have rocked that challenge to have lots of sparkle, too! Let's get on with this week's Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge, shall we? Here are all the important details:

Michelle from My Papered Cottage (she makes the most amazing cards, inside and out!)

"For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." Matthew 11:30


Make a CAS (clean and simple) card. That's very hard to do when there are so many wonderful things to add to cards these days!

My Card: 
This little card is actually a 3x3 card of a set that I made this week using kraft card stock and Stampin Up's "Very Punny" collection. Each card features a different stamp & design.

Here's what the whole set looks like:

Well, I hope you're having a blessed day! Don't forget to enjoy all the other DT's blogs as well as our wonderful devotion on the Stampin Sisters in Christ blog!

Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge #145

Good morning! Welcome to another wonderful Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge!
This week our lovely hostess is the amazing Linda from Lovely Linda's Craft Central!

Linda's challenge is to use something NEW on your project - meaning: anything new, a new paper, stamp, die cut, new style of card, anything new!

Our scripture this week is John 13:34-35 "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another."

Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Loo. They are giving away 3 digital images to one random winner from our challenge this week! Digital Delights have such fun digi stamps, both b&w and colored! The images from my card today were from their Bargains & Freebies section for the month of June. They have a set of bargain images that all go together to create a scene just like the one I've used! It shows you how it will look together, and you can use the digi's to follow their example or do your own scene with the digis. I chose to use the ones already colored. Check them out! Also, check out their blog where you can see how their DT uses their images!

The "new" element of my card is the images from Digital Delights. I've teamed them up with some American Girl dp, some pearls by Basic, some ribbon from the dollar store and some stickles & glossy accents (on the popcicle) OH! I used "happy birthday" inside the flower circle that comes with a friendship sentiment, cause this card is for my niece for her 14th birthday. Hope you enjoy my card today as well as Linda's devotion on the Stampin Sisters in Christ blog!

Have a blessed week!
