Winner! Winner! and Another Winner!

Hi Everyone!  I   am so excited about today's post!  We have winners from all different challenges to announce today!  So, please be sure to read every little bit!  And, remember, you can easily be entered into our "Card of the Week" challenge every week, by leaving a comment on one of this week's post.

On the right you see my card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #55!  They gave us a picture with 5 different colors to be used in it!  We needed to use bright blue, light blue, pink, burgundy and red.  I used so many different materials in this...and I really like the way it came out!  I used SU! and Marvy markers, water, Color Box's Paint Box, Stencil Collection's Non-Smear Pastels, a paint brush and a bit of paint!  I used the SU! Butterfly of Happiness set and the SU! Noteworthy set for the "thank you" on the card.  I hope you like it...and I hope the PDCC DT likes it too.  I will be finding out if I made the team before the end of the month.  I would love to join them...but please pray for God's will to be done in this case.  I really appreciate that!  Thank you.

Today you will find...
  •       John 13:34, 1 Corinthians 1:4, Philemon 4, 2 Peter 3:18
  •       Several Winners to Different Challenges!

Everyone:  Please read the side bar on the "Card of the Week" challenge.  Some things have changed.

The Card of the Week, for this week is made by a very wonderful person and supportive friend of mine... Deb Saaranen!!  Deb has a fabulous blog of her own named Dream in Color!  Deb belongs to the Design Team for the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, the blog for this fabulous store of everything is called,    No Time To Stamp,  When you visit please share some of the He IS Able love, and let Deb know what you think about this AMAZING card.  She has donated several cards...this is one of my favorites.  It reminds me of Cape Cod, MA.  I think it is the colors.  The partial Verse on the card reads "grow in grace..." and it is from 2 Peter 3:18.   Thank you for all of your support, Deb, and for keeping a link to this blog on your own blog!  Thank you so much!

2 Peter 3:18--"But grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  To Him be glory both now and forever!  Amen."
