Bible Verse Thursday and Stamping in Time with ODBD

Wow, it's Thursday again already!!! Time for another Bible Verse Thursday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts. This week's challenge theme is "Reaping and Sowing". Most of us have heard the saying, "You reap what you sow." , which comes from Galatians 6:7

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

Even non-Christians believe this, but call it "Karma".....or "what goes around comes around". No matter if you believe the Bible or not, the principles are still the truth. If you sow goodness, you will reap goodness.......if you sow wickedness or bad attitudes, the same will be returned to you. Another perspective to reaping and sowing......if you ever feel that you are not getting the respect you deserve, or the support you need, or any kind words from anyone, or even money, and so on.......stop and think.....have you sowed any of those things to someone else lately? Whatever you are lacking.....odds are that you haven't been doing your part. After all, what we do should never be about
"me", but should always be about them! So get out there and sow some blessings!!

Okay, back to the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge......
the challenge is to use a verse about anything that is sown or reaped (use your imagination).......or an image of the same theme along with a scripture verse. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!

For my challenge sample, I have used a new set by Our Daily Bread designs, called "Happy Fall", along with Basic Grey "Max and Whiskers" designer paper, Basic Grey pearls, and May Arts Satin Ribbon.


Today also brings a brand new Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge on the Our Daily Bread designs' blog. The assignment: use any ODBD stamps; the challenge: use your favorite "go-to" sketch/layout. When I'm in a hurry, this is what I's a simple design, but it works!!! I have also used the ODBD Shining the Light Challenge, to use ribbon, a charm, and only one other embellishment....except for flowers, unless your charm is a flower. Betty's Color Challenge over at Splitcoast this week is to use Riding Hood Red, Blushing Bride, and Early Expresso....I don't have any of the new SU colors yet, so I chose this Basic Grey "Bittersweet" designer paper which fit perfectly! Also, the Ways to Use It Challenge is to "Stick It" take on the challenge is paper piercing....I "stick it" to nearly every card I make!!!!

If you'd like to play along, please check out the details HERE with instructions on how to win $ toward ODBD stamps!!! Check out some gorgeous challenge Stamping in Time samples below:


The "ingredients" for my SNT card are a scripture verse from Scripture Collections 2 by Our Daily Bread designs, along with Basic Grey "Bittersweet" designer paper, Zva Creative Pearls, a Martha Stewart Doily Lace Border Punch, corner rounder, Bow Easy, May Arts Satin Ribbon, and lots of Pearl Glimmer Mist.
