SSCC #74 {Believe in Miracles}



I've witnessed several "real" miracles in my life and truly believe that He gifts to us those moments to remember them, make them ours, to share them with others and shape who we are.   I recently had the great priviledge to share my daughter Victoria's miracle with a women's fellowship and although it has taken me years to talk about it, the warmth and love that eminated from the room as I spoke was immeasurable.  There was no judging, no contempt, just a love in Christ from fellow christian moms that just filled my heart with blessings.   When I saw the SSCC this week, I started to make a card and it all just flowed!
This week, the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge shared with us this scripture:

Psalm 23, "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever."


Challenge: Use the colors blue (still waters) and green (green pastures) as the predominate colors in your card/project.


What a joy!  That is my favorite color combination!   I used a cardstock base of Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze & Night of Navy with PTI white and one of my cherished DSP's - Urban Garden!
The butterflies are from SSNS called "Everyday Miracles", colored with my prismacolor markers in matching shades.  I decorated the inside as well so that I can write my daughter a very special note as she is one my very true miracles!


I followed this sketch at Papertake Weekly to create my card :)
