I "heart" my extraordinarily creative friends -- you will too when you visit them!

Got your attention? Stamping Sister's in Christ offer this week's scripture for contemplation: Matthew 18:4 "Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." And, for the challenge: make a card or project with an image of a child or childlike things on it (such as toys or a saying about children), but not a baby card. This week's prize is three ever so darling images from Mo's Digitals -- so how could I not join in the fun? The image I used for my shopping pad was a Mo's freebie to show how adorable these images are (colored with prismacolor pencils and OMS)! I didn't fancy this project up with a lot of embellies because Louis and Bronte are all about eating cookies and not frills. The notepad holder is a great creation by Nichole Heady at www.papertreyink.com -- you can find it here. I changed the dimensions and used 12X12 DCWV card stock to accommodate the size of my notepad. Visit Stampin' Sisters in Christ Blogspot for inspiration and not just in card making!

I gotta go finish my grocery list -- but as you can see "cookies" are at the top of my list!
