SIWS 28 - Ecclesiastes 3:1

This week we are focusing on Ecclesiastes 3:1 in the Say It With Scripture Challenge at The Sweet 'n Sassy ConnectionTo every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven (Eccl. 3:1). 

As we approach the end of the year, it's a good time to take stock of how the year has gone and what we have accomplished for the Lord.  Just as the year has different seasons, so too there are seasons in our lives.  When we are young, our opportunities for service for the Lord will differ from the ones we will have when we are older.  It's important for us to realize that these different types of opportunities are given to us by the Lord for a purpose.  Instead of chafing because someone in a different season of life has opportunities we do not, we should instead be focusing on making the most of the opportunities we do have.  Next year, let's all try to focus on doing all we can with what the Lord gives us.

For my card this week, I used the Mojo Monday sketch 220.  I chose some of the beautiful papers in the Bo Bunny Snowfall 6 x 6 pad that is now available in the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps store. These papers are beautiful and wintery.  I used some bling on some of the snowflakes and a rhinestone ring around the sentiment panel for some sparkle.  Two different embossing folders added extra texture.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific (white), Misc from stash (blue)
Patterned paper:  Bo Bunny (Snowfall)
Stamp - Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps (Encouragement Scripture)
Embellishments/Tools - Cuttlebug EF (Snowflakes, Just My Type), Spellbinders (Circle small, Lacey Circle), rhinestone circle (Recollections), individual rhinestones (BG and Recollections)

This will be the last Say It With Scripture Challenge for the year.  We are taking next week off so that we can spend time with our families.  We'll be back January 4th with a new challenge.

Please join us this week and don't forget to stop by the Say It With Scripture Challenge at The Sweet 'n Sassy Connection and grab your free digi.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Merry Christmas!!
