It's All About JESUS!

Drew asked me to make a card for a teenage boy who accepted Christ during our church service yesterday, and I remembered the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge that our wonderful DT member Lorie is involved with! This is a brand new card challenge blog in which a Bible verse is posted, and you create a card inspired by that verse. Clever, right? :) I LOVE the idea, and I was totally inspired in SO many ways by this week's verse... But I had to choose one... For now at least! :) I do hope that you will check this challenge out and post a card for it! They are offering up a Happy Birthday stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs (how generous!) to one lucky winner! All you have to do is link up a card or project by Saturday, August 29.

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty." John 6:35 (NIV)

I thought of so many things that could be inspired by this verse, but what really jumps out is the sentiment I created on my card.... It's all about JESUS! He is the Source and the Life! I inked only part of the "It's all about you" sentiment to read "It's all about", and then I attached the Basic Grey Chip Alpha stickers to spell "JESUS"! Obviously, these are inked on the top only with Adirondack Pitch Black ink.

Have a wonderful day! And be sure to think about this truth!

Stamps: Doo Dads, A Dad of All Kinds (Unity). Paper: GP White, OA Night Light - Jack. Ink: SU White Craft, Riding Hood Red, Adirondack Pitch Black. Accessories: White EP, Black Silk Ribbon, Sponge, Basic Grey Piper Micro Chip ABC's - White Chocolate.
