Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 97 . . . favorites

Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. We enjoyed seeing all the CAS creations in the gallery last week. This week's hostess is our sister Rebekka, who has selected this verse from James 2:18,19 "But someone will say, 'You have faith, and I have works.' Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe and tremble."

Her challenge is an easy one, you get to choose 'what works for you,' your favorite embellishment, embossing folder, spellbinder, image, whatever is a favorite for you.

I like patterned papers and this package (Cosmo Cricket DeLovely) has been a favorite of mine for a while. I am finally using it up and as fellow hoarders, I'm sure you understand what I'm talking about when I say it is tough to let that last bit slip through your fingers, but there will be a new favorite paper soon. Also, when I am sad I like to 'play with my paper dolls.' They are favorites when I'm down, so I pulled out one of my paper dolls, this Frieda stamp from The Craft's Meow and dressed her up in bright colors. I also don't function well unless I have a good sketch, so sketches are one of my favorite ways to try to scrape together some mojo and I found a sketch on Card Patterns (sketch 123) that helped me out.

I am certain that Rebekka is going to have some wonderful thoughts to share in her devotional, which you will find here. I was fighting a bout of food poisoning and didn't gather together any additional thoughts this week. Also on the home page you will see the design team's lovely creations and see if you can guess what some of their 'favorites' might be! Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and we do appreciate that.

Hope you find some time to play this week! Thanks for looking.

I am entering the following challenges:

CMC Copic Challenges: I used at least five different shades on Frieda's hair to get reddish tints in the brown
Alphabet Challenge Blog: J for Just one word . . .my single word is Love
Stamp Something: Bugs and Butterflies
Crazy 4 Challenges #95: Summer!!!
Wee Memories: Summertime
