Thinking of You

Stampin' Sisters in Christ has become very close to my heart. I look forward to going to their site each day for the encouragement and kindness that I know await me there! These ladies always have a positive outlook, and spending a bit of time with them each day helps me to stay focused and positive as well!
The following have always been some of my favorite Bible verses, and I feel like they perfectly describe the way these gals go about their days! Thanks ladies!


"Encourage one another;

Build one another up.

Be at peace among yourselves. . .
Always seek to do good to one another. . .
Rejoice always,
Pray constantly,
Give thanks in all circumstances;
For this is God's will in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thess. 5:11, 13, 15-18 (RSV)
This card was created for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week. We were to include "Thinking of You", or "Praying for You" on our cards. I believe I fulfilled both sentiments! Oops, in looking at the photo, I just realized that I accidentally pushed the ribbon over the word 'prayers' when taking the picture..... However, I have the smartest audience in the world, so I'm sure that you had already figured that out!
I am also submitting this to Paperlicious Designs. Melisa's latest challenge was to use vellum on our projects. I had a piece of flowered vellum in my stash, so I used it for the background. The sentiment on the left is adhered on the card flat, I used semi-dimensional dots on the Thinking of You sentiment, and used a large dimensional dot on each of the blooms of the flower.
Melisa is another creative mentor that has such a kind and generous character. I go to her blog daily as well, for both emotional and creative inspiration, and am never disappointed!
Recipe: TAC Stamps, DCWV CS, Vellum and Ribbon from scrap stash, flat pearls from Kaiser.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you like this card. Didn't mean to 'preach' today, I just felt the need to let these folks know how appreciated they are!
Have a great night, and I will see you all tomorrow! I'm off now to check YOUR blogs for inspiration!
