Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge: Ephesians 3 :17-19

Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadian Bloggers!! Yesterday in church the pastor talked about how spending time with family and friends and having big turkey dinners is nice but Thanksgiving is about God and giving Him thanks for all we have. Today I am thankful for my daughter and for God getting me out of a bad situation alive!! I am also thankful that God helping me to become a stronger person through it all!!

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" Philippians 4:13

This brings me to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ new challenge. the verse for this challenge is:

"that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend  with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge." Ephesians 3: 17-19

Challenge: create a box or use an image that includes a box

Well I had just happen to come across Naomi's blog Creative Bug On The Loose  on Thursday and she had made this beautiful Origami box that I really wanted to try. I made one that day and when I saw this challenge I knew I wanted to make another one (I will post my first box tomorrow). I decided to make it smaller then the first just to try out different sizes of paper. I also through about the paper I wanted to use and went with heart patterned paper to go with the scripture.

What I Used:
K Andrew Design Stamps : I Heart You!
Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Spellbinders Nestabilities: Labels Eight
Stickles: Silver
Flower Punch
Hole Punch
Crafting Knife
Hot Glue Gun
8x8 piece of paper (base of box)

Now if you are anything like me and when I looked at Naomi's box I thought wow that must have taken alot of time, when I watch the video she has linked to her post it was so easy!! I now can make it without watching the video!! I plan on making these as Christmas gifts for the ladies we babysit for and filling them with chocolate!!

The challenge ends on Saturday October 13 at 11:59p.m.

Have A Blessed Day!!
