I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me

True words, my friends. True words!

Today's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is hosted by our Southern Belle Candace Mitchell. Sadly, it's Candace's last challenge with us on the design team. Please be sure to click over to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog to read all about what's ahead for Candace and to read her thoughts on this week's inspiration scripture. We are surely going to miss her!

Candace chose as the inspiration scripture Psalm 119:105, "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." The challenge is no stamped images...make a card with just words (a sentiment/verse).

My card features one of my favorite verses, Philippians 4:13. I came to especially love it while reading the Mitford series of books by Jan Karon, where it was often quoted, almost as a mantra to keep going in the face of difficulties. I can't think of a better thing to say out loud when we're feeling stressed or afraid!


The verse is a stamp by Verve, and the flourish stamp is from the Very Vintage Labels No. 1 stamp set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. That wonderful DP is from the brand new Olivia collection by Basic Grey, as are the border stickers and chipboard. I followed Fall To Layout 95 at Clean & Simple Stamping.

I hope you'll join us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week. Our sponsor is Paper Jewels, with a chance to win a $15 Gift Certificate to spend in their store!

Have a blessed day, my friends!
