Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge 54. . . As Iron Sharpens Iron
Happy Sunday stampers! Its time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. This week's hostess is Lovely Linda! She selected this verse from Proverbs 27:17 "As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend." Her challenge is to use some form of metal on your card.
I found this layout in the new Stampin' Up holiday mini. I used a combination of two sets from Mark's Finest Papers, then I have two brads for the metal on the card.
I know that on our main blog Linda will have some wonderful thoughts to share and you can see the rest of the design team creations here.
You ever notice sometimes too how wisdom can 'skip a layer?' I don't have that wise layer above me, there is no older person to turn to for good counsel. And that's where wise and caring friends can make a huge difference.
I am thankful for friends who have come alongside me during a difficult time. I have had them lend encouragement, give me scripture verses and help me remember that regardless of what we're facing, God already has the victory. No one is meant to walk through this life alone and I'm very grateful for all of my friends. I'm grateful for my children too, who themselves are getting older, to the point where we can pray with and for each other as well and that is a huge blessing in my life also.
Thanks for looking, hope you can play along.
