Good Morning!

Happy Sunday!
Hope the morning is going well for you, and that your day is full of blessings! As it's Sunday, it's a new challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!


Our hostess is the fabulous Lisa Hjulberg!


She has chosen: "This, then, is how you should pray: "Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one."
~Matthew 6:9-13


The challenge this week is to make a card/project that features prayer; either someone praying, or a verse about prayer, or a greeting that lets someone know you are praying for them.

Lisa's scripture was Jesus' response to the disciples when they asked Jesus to teach them to pray. There is no right or wrong way to pray - the best way for me is simply and quietly.

Our sponsor today is Layers of Color, who is generously donating a Flutterescent Clear Art Stamp Set! Be sure to join in the challenge this week - you could be the lucky winner!


My card today features an Art Stencil, and a free digi image, both from Layers of Color. I used Versamark Ink on the stencil (over cream cardstock), then embossed with clear UTEE. After heat embossing, I sponged on Bashful Blue Ink, from Stampin' Up. The sentiment is from TAC, and I used Glossy Accents on the Nestie Frame, and also over the entire bird to give them the same glossy appearance as the stencil pattern. I tried to keep it very simple so that the stencil was visible.

I hope that you like it! Hop over and look around at Layers of Color, and be sure to join in the challenge this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!!!


Hugs and blessings,
Patti J.
