SSIC A Little Sentiment-al

It is the weekend and we all love that don' we!!?  It is Sunday here andI love Sunday - and Sunday means time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.  Faith Art cards are my favourite to make,  I love it that we can share our passion for paper with our passion for Him.

This week Candace has given us this scripture from Psalms:
'Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.'
Psalm 119:105

The challenge is to use NO stamped images! Make a card with just words (a sentiment/verse).  I have needed a few 'Thinking of You' cards and am makiing the most of this weeks challenge.  I have used this sentiment sent to me in a RAK and layered it onto green cardstock, then mounted it with foam tape onto a Fluer de Lis Nestibilitie - thanks to my friend Bridget, who let me run some off!

I paper pierced the sentiment square, filling in the opposite corners,  I really like this effect!

I have also used the Layers of Color Art Stencil Elegant Touch, spraying it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist directly onto patterned DP, I love the effect this has.  The corners are paper pierced and I have added white brads to the corners of the Fleur de Lis Nestibilitie.

The scripture Candace has given is favourite of mine.  It reminds me of how specific God is...so often we read this and think great, God's Word is a light for me - and that is so true, but think about what it is really telling us - His word is a lamp to my feet - this is so encouraging to me, it is a lamp to my feet to light up my next steps and a light to my path to light the entire way - He is involved on every level - what a comfort!!

We often set our eyes on what lies ahead and  focus on that, it is easy to get tripped up along the way by those things that are right in front of us but God assures us that His Word will light them up so we can see them and not stumble - how amazing is that!  This scripture is such an encouragement and so typical of our loving God!  I love it that we are not about religion but RELATIONSHIP with God!
