So far behind........

with the challenges. Well, a few weeks back I discovered the Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge blog via a friend of mine, and I am hooked. Sometimes I don't get to play, but that is all right, because this morning, even still not feeling so good, I made a quick card for this challenge. It surely shows how time flies as this is already challenge # 6. This week the Sisters are using Psalm19:14 as the theme which reads: "Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight, o Lord, my strenght and my redeemer" this is such a powerful scripture reminding us to watch what we say and think. Perfect to make a card to let someone know "Thinking of You or Praying for you". The perfect scripture and theme to go together.
Two weeks ago I received my KIT (key Ingredients Kit) from Taylored Expressions and it has the most beautiful papers, ribbons and other goodies in it. So, I just to dig in and use some of it ;D. For my base I chose a cream cs, some textured chocolate cs and some yummy DP which was also included in the kit. I am not sure what the name of the papers are, so , lets just call them the papers from the TE KIT :D.

As you all know I love DP no matter what brand and this one is no exception. I've decided on a 5.5"x5.5" card as I did not want to waste too much of the cut down to 6x6 paper. The main panel is cut with the Nesties Labels 3 dies and the sentiment, which is from the Verve Set Meditations and was tamped in SU Close to Cocoa. To make everything pop a little more I added some Kaiser chocolate half pearls and some gorgeous May Arts ribbon. I felt that something was still missing so I got my neglected glass beads and findings out and made a stick pin to add the missing jewelry :D:D. Since I wanted to incorporate the "Thinking of you or praying for you" part of the challenge I finished the inside off as well. This is such an easy card, but since I am using the theme scripture I think nothing much is needed as this scripture is very deep and speaks for itself.

Let the words of my mouth.....
