Want to join us? Here's what you need to know:

(cause it's my birthday week-end, too! really, it just happened to be my turn, it wasn't planned to be on my birthday week-end, it just happened to be that way!)

"Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."  John 3:3

PLEASE be sure to read the devotion on the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge blog. It will give you more information on what this scripture means and if you're not already a follower of Jesus Christ, it will tell you how to become one! If you have questions on this, any of our sisters can help you!

Make a birthday card!

Verses Rubber Stamps - they are offering one blessed winner in our challenge a $15 gift card to their store!
You could also win one of our SHINING STARS! We give out 3 a week!

My Card:

This awesome tag and party hat are showcasing Daydream Designs new "PARTY TIME" collection! I paper-pieced the hat, I added the hat and balloon to my digital paper to make a design on the paper then I traced them with stickles, the tag...I used the Party Time Sentiments "happy" and "birthday" and placed them over the sentiment that was already there, so that it would say "Happy Birthday" I got some washi tape from the LSS yesterday, that is the yellow with white dots on my card. All the digi papers are by Sugar Pop Sweet Designs. I used little white poms on the left side! I can't belive I finally used them!! :)
