A friend sharpens a friend...


The challenge this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is inspired by Proverbs 27:17, "As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend. We were also asked to add metal to our projects.


As soon as I saw their challenge this morning, I thought of this totally cute digi image from Create with TLC. The sentiment is computer generated onto the page with the digi image. The image is printed on patterned papers, and the girl and her 'friend' are paper pieced. The inside is stamped with "Just really glad you're my friend".


What a fun challenge, a fun image, and a scripture that we should all be more attuned to!


Hugs and smiles, my friends!!!
