SSIC challenge 150 ... music

Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ, where all of our challenges are based on scripture. This week's sponsor is Fred She Said! They are giving away a $15 gift card to one randomly selected participant in this week's challenge.

And our lovely hostess this week is the devoted MariLynn, who has a beautiful heart for the Lord. She has selected this verse from Ephesians 5:19-20 Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Her challenge is to create a card or project that incorporates music somehow. 

MariLynn often gives out her favorite hymns or inspirational songs on her blog posts and I bet today is no exception. I look forward to reading her thoughts on this morning's verse. 

I do know that if we followed that verse in Ephesians we wouldn't be sharing gossip or talking unkindly about other people because if we speak to one another with hymns and songs from the Spirit that would be eliminated from our speech. That is an area of struggle for many if not all of us I think. 

For my card I chose this image from Penny Black's 12 Days of Christmas set. I realized that I don't have a lot of song or music related stamps any more, I have given them to a friend who will make more use of them than I have. But I have this little dog playing the drums and I already gave this card to my youngest daughter, who is going to be starting fifth grade band playing percussion. 

The tone of my card is a bit 'greeny' maybe I can play with that later today to fix it. 

Thanks for looking, hope you can play along this week!

Peggysue - Great thoughts on the verses. Your are right, if we spent more time speaking Godly things to each other the gossip and hurtful things would be nearly eliminated. I need to practice that more and be a better example to my children.
This is such a fun card! It makes me smile! That dog is giving the drums everything he has isn't he?? Love the DP and the sketch you used!
Blessings,
Michelle
