Good morning...

I'm so glad that you stopped by today!

As it is Sunday, it's a new challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge Blog.

Our wonderful, and creatively amazing, Lisa Hjulberg is today's hostess.

Lisa has chosen the following scripture for her challenge today:

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

~Phillipians 4:13

Lisa's challenge to us is to create a card or project showing encouragement, or congratulations.

Our sponsor this week is Scor-Pal. One lucky winner will receive a sample of their Scor-Tape! It could be you! We can't wait to see your encouragement or contratulations projects!

My card today features stamps from The Angel Company.

I used my Scor-Pal to create a Faux Tile card.

I stamped and colored my image with Copic markers,

then scored lines every 1/2", turned the card, and scored again at every 1/2".

Next, the image and sentiment were distressed with Antique Linen distress ink.

The entire piece and the sentiment were covered with Versamark Dazzle,

then with Ultra Thick Embossing Powder (UTEE).

After heat embossing, the Versamark/UTEE step was repeated once more.

Both pieces were attached to some hunter green CS,

and a ribbon added for simple embellishing.

Found some gold gemstones for a bit of bling in the center of the poinsettia.

I hope that your week has been as delightful as ours has.

Our DS got here from California on Tuesday afternoon, and our DD got here Tuesday night. DS left this morning very early to go home, and we are blessed to have DD still home with us.

Thanksgiving Day brought friends to dinner - my dear friend Shirley, and her DH joined us for an abundance of yummies, and brought a wonderful homemade coconut creme pie!

Thanks again for stopping by!

Have a great week -

Patti J.
