Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge 38 . . . Blue, Brown and White
Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. This week's hostess is the lovely and talented Linda, who from 'down under' selected this verse: John 4:23 "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him." Please click on the home page for Stampin' Sisters in Christ to read her thoughts on this passage, you will be blessed.
Her challenge to you this week is to use the colors blue, brown and white in your card.
Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp which is offering up a great set, Deer with Forest Family, to one lucky winner of this week's challenge. Hope you can find the time to play along.
A dear friend sent me this Flourishes set for my birthday, with its various flower stamps, and I chose to use the morning glory for this challenge as the flower most naturally blue. The sentiment was a tough one, but I found the perfect one from the set I used last weekend from Mark's Finest Papers. The ribbon is covering it up somewhat, the full sentiment says; I will be here for you. Please depend on me.
My best friend is going through a very tough time right now. Her oldest daughter, the same age as my oldest, might have a very rare form of cancer. I've known this girl since she was in preschool with my daughter. They discovered a large tumor in a bad place and it has to come out. This has all happened very quickly in a matter of just a few weeks and no one knows what lies ahead.
I feel so helpless because we differ in our faith walk. What provides me with great comfort when my world is shaken does not comfort here, or at least to the same degree. So I listen and try to be as good a friend as I can be when I don't have any answers to the question 'why?' This card is for her to let her know she has my ears and my help in whatever form I can give it at any time. This friend walked with me through my divorce almost seventeen years ago, every step of the way and she means so much to me. Thanks for looking.
