Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 109 . . . fruit of the spirit



Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ! This week's hostess is our lovely founder Kris, who has selected this verse from Galatians 5:22-23a "But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control." Her challenge is for you to include fruit in your creation (stamp, digi, paper, charms, etc.) ...just a reminder that by definition a pumpkin is a fruit and so are other forms of harvest produce like gourds. One of the stampin' sisters also reminded us that a pinecone is considered a fruit, so you have a broad range of images to choose from.

Our sponsor is Clear Dollar Stamps and one randomly selected participant in this week's challenge will win a $15 gift card from that company to their store. They have lots of great images and scripture verses, as well as other stamping supplies. We hope you get a chance to visit their site!

You can read Kris' thoughts on her devotional on the main page as well as see the creations this week by the other members of the design team. I don't know about you, but that list is a bit daunting as it proves that I need to work a bit more on the fruitfulness of my Christian walk, or I need to take more of my concerns to the Lord so that he can increase the fruitfulness.

I went with a CAS card as my time this week slipped through my fingers. Thanks for looking and we hope you can join in!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Everyday Button Basics
Ink: black and kiwi kiss
Paper: white and red, red gingham
Other: poppy buttons, marker, edge punch
