Inch by Inch...

Welcome to another Sunday Challenge for Stampin' Sisters in Christ!


I am certain that you all have your cleaning, baking, shopping, and gift wrapping finished, and are only waiting now for the arrival of, or to the homes of, your loved ones! Good for you - great job!
Peggysue is our wonderful hostess for today's challenge!
She brings us a scripture from Micah to carry with us and think about this week:
"But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah,
Yet out of you shall come forth to Me the One to be Ruler in Israel,
whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting." ~Micah 5:2 NKJV
Be sure to read Peggysue's thoughts on this verse on the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog, as well as on Peggysue's blog.
Peggysue's challenge for us this week is to create a card using inchies.
What a perfect and fitting challenge for this scripture!






Our sponsor this week is Our Daily Bread Designs. Some lucky participant will win a $15.00 gift card to shop at Our Daily Bread Designs. We appreciate their continued support, and can't wait to see your beautiful creations!
Here is my card:



This stamp set is called Snowman Nativity, and is a set that is carried by The Angel Company. I took the liberty of making a slightly larger card, with 1.5 size squares so that I could work with the sentiments in this set. The three sentiment pieces, and the main image are all popped up with dimensional dots, while the other squares are adhered directly to the card.

I am going to enter this card here:

Paper Playtime: Use a snowman

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please check out the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog, where you can read Peggysue's beautiful words of wisdom, and see the gorgeous creations of my DT sisters! I've been 'peeking' this week as they post to our group site, and I can guarantee you won't be disappointed!

Have a great week - stay safe, and stay warm!

Hugs and blessings...Patti J.
