Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge

Good Morning! Half way through the week and so far we have escaped the rain, praying that the weather forecast for today is wrong as well!!  Stampin' Sisters in Christ posted a new challenge on Sunday and I am really enjoying enter their challenges. The scripture for this one is:

"Speaking to one another in 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."
Ephesians 5:19-20

Challenge: Create a card/project that shows some element of music.

I have always loved music, I have played many instruments, flute, keyboard, guitar but never stuck with any of them. My instrument of choice is my voice. I remember in public school a friend of mine told me I sounded like an Opera singer when I sang!! (so not true now, I think I have a bit of country in me). I am a very shy person who hates speaking in public, so much so that when I was baptised I chose to sing instead of speak in front of the church!! For me being on stage and singing is less nerve wrecking then speaking in public. I have done alot with music in the church but have given that up to raise my daughter. I still enjoy singing and I think my daughter takes after me as she is always making up songs and singing everything!! I believe that God gives each and everyone of us different gifts and talents to use to worship Him, my just happens to be the gift of Music!

This challenge for me was a way to use my two passions, music and art.


What I Used:
Clear Dollar Stamps: Set Apart
Momento Ink: Tuxedo Black
7gypsies 6x6 paper stack
EK Success Corner Rounder
Heart button
Hot Glue Gun

I will be putting this card on my desk to remind myself that I am a "Child of the King"

You have until Saturday October 6th at 11:59p.m to enter your card/project.

Have A Great Day!

God Bless!
