As for me and my house . . .

Happy Sunday stampers! I am on the fly as I prepost this (on Friday) trying to get ready to go out of town with the hubby and youngest child. I do love the verse that Candace chose for this week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, from Joshua 24:15, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

For this challenge you are to create a card or project focused on the home, such as a housewarming card, or decor. I have a card here that has a house on it . . .:) And it uses some of favorite homey touches, lace, gingham, blues and reds, a button, some stickles.

What does that verse mean to you? Are you following that verse in your heart and in your home? Not perfectly, because no one is perfect, but are you reading your bible together? Attending a local church regularly? Reaching out to serve the poor and needy when you can? Building your relationship with the Lord? I really hope so and if not, what better day than today to make that a goal for the rest of the year?

Thanks for looking and hope you get a chance to play along this week!

I love all the "homey" touched you added here, I think of gingham and that floral as great representations of home.

I have to agree with Gina that this card has a homey feel that I loved first time I saw it. The coloring adds to the sweet feel of the card. Outstanding GF!!

I'm laughing at Joyce's comment...only a dork!! :)
Well, this is so pretty, that image reminds me of a picture I have in our guest room. The gingham, heart and papers are perfect touches. As for putting this into practice, I think I need more work on that, but am always inspired to serve more.
