As I mentioned above, this is the final Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge. It is very sad that we're closing these amazing challenges, but I know that God has used this group to reach many people and if it's in His will, it will be back someday! I never thought I'd belong to a design team, let alone one with the most amazing and wonderful women who are sisters in Christ! This group means the world to me and I'm forever grateful to Kris for seeing something in my cards that I just didn't see and for welcoming me into this group several years ago and again last year. I won't be too much more mushy and sentimental, but I want each of you ladies at Stampin' Sisters in Christ to know just how much you really mean to me. I love each one of you and will never forget you and the time we've spent together praying for each other and sharing our lives. A song comes to mind when saying our good-bye today, and I just want to say "A friend's a friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them." Thank you, ladies for your love, friendship, prayers and wonderful amazing creativity that you've shared with the world!
 
One final word, remember
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON
no matter what season that is in your life!
Blessings!

Oh Helen - that song came to mind for me as well - by Michael W Smith - the words are so very true! What a blessing it has been to be part of the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Team with you - thank you for the love and support you give so freely and the wonderful gift of prayer. I am grateful that our friendships have eternal value! God bless you! {{{hugs}}}
BTW - your card is adorable! {{{hugs}}}

What a cute, cute card! Love that sweet image. It has been so great getting to know you and to walk some of this journey of life with you. You will remain in my prayers - and we will stay in touch!

Helen, this is such a sweet card and I love that image. You did a great job coloring it. Perfect for the occasion. You are a delight to me, and I'm so glad we met through SSIC! And I'm doubly glad that we will still stay connected through our prayer chain and Daydream Designs. You are a blessing to me, and I just couldn't ever say goodbye! What a treasured journey this has been!!!

Helen, thank you for YOU!! of course your card is adorable, as are all your cards, but the real reason I asked you to come back to SSiC is because of your big heart for the Lord, fun personality, and your friendship. I missed ya, and I hope we'll stay in touch for a long, long time. Hard to believe we've known each other for ... 21 years! Well, we lost touch after college and missed out on a big chunk, but who'dda thunk we'd reunite through the blogosphere with a common hobby? More than a hobby... we're sistahs forever and I hope we'll stay in touch. Love and Hugs!
