December Divine Design

December 8th, 2008

I can hardly believe we’ve completed a whole year of Divine Design Challenges.  A huge thank you to Lori Craig for following the Lord’s leading to get us started on this year of challenges to focus on God’s word.  Since this is the last challenge for the year, I’ll be sharing more about my completed project over the next few days – so be sure to check back. I have a couple more verses to catch up and the tin for them all to be kept in, plus a couple of other pieces you might enjoy seeing.

Here is my journaling card for December featuring Galatians 6:9-10 which was part of our Pastor’s message in service yesterday.


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

This verse seemed particularly appropriate during this busy season when we are supposed to be focusing on the birth of Jesus and on giving, but when it’s so easy to be overwhelmed and weary of doing good amongst all the busy-ness.  This was part of Pastor Jeff’s message yesterday in Galatians about how we reap what we sow which can be either negative or positive.  Read Galatians 6:7-10 for a fuller picture.

And now card deets – it’s really simple – text computer printed on vellum as usual.  Card base and tab are Prism cardstock and dp is Cosmo Cricket Honey Pie (you’ll be seeing more of that dp as I share the rest of the project this week). I took a piece of SU Sage Shadow cardstock and ran it through the CuttleBug and folded it over as a spine on the card.  The end of the vellum was punches with the scallop border punch and sponged with Sage Shadow ink.  The pink rhinestones are Zva Creative from TE – they are such nice quality – super sparkly and self-adhesive.

The Divine Design Bible Verse Challenge will be continuing on SCS in 2009, so whether or not you joined us this year I hope you’ll jump into the Challenge in January.  I’m not certain who will be *leading* it, but more details to come on that soon.  This year the idea was to choose an on-going project to add to each month.  I chose a mini lunch tin.  Other projects included 6×6 scrapbooks, hanging stands, coiled books, file boxes, etc.  These sets make a great gift at the end of the year, so I’d suggest you make doubles of everything as you go so you’ll end up with one for yourself and one to give as a gift.  You can see all the entries in the SCS gallery by clicking here.

Now let’s go see what the rest of the original Scripture Chicks have created for our last verse of the year:






I have been so blessed to be part of the team this year to bring this challenge to you.  Being able to use stamping as a tool to study and proclaim God’s word has been awesome!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great week!
