SSIC103 - What are you afraid of?

The ladies at SSIC have asked challenge participants to try something new. But not just anything... Players are to use something they have been afraid to try. Well after thinking a couple of minutes **there are plenty of things I'm scared of** I came up with a list of things to do. Thankfully I narrowed it down to two...

1. Silhouettes - I love the look but have been TERRIFIED to try putting one on a card... I feel very inept in this department.... My dear friend, Barb recently sent me this beautiful paper by Stampin' Up...

2. Using absolutely NO stamping on the outside... only the inside... ***Oh, dear readers this one almost broke me out into a cold sweat***


Now for where the card will be going...

Our church has been going through some transitions as of late. Our beloved pastor of 22 years was called to leave our church and start a new ministry elsewhere. As you can imagine this has left a big hole in our church and heart. Our search committee has been working diligently and prayerfully to find the man God has prepared for us. Our long time Chair of Deacons also retired and this left us asking one of the other deacons to step up into this role. So his role has become quite time consuming not to mention stressful. I thought this stamp by ODBD would give him some encouragement during this challenging time. Thank you so much for stopping by! And until we meet again!

The outside...



And the inside...

Lori,this is gorgeous. I love the silhouette. I think that paper was just perfect for this card. Stamping only on the inside kinda goes with my fear of stamping the inside after I've finished the outside just to smear it and ruin the whole card. Thanks for joining us at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge this week.

It came out great, Lori. And the inside looks so nice! It reminds me of a diploma or something. (When I graduated, we got ours in a book with an image of the school on the left, and the diploma on the right and it had corners like that.) Would seem quite appropriate as he is stepping up.
