This week's Bloggers Challenge is to create a project using STITCHING. Well, as much as I love how the sewing looks at cards, I am not a big sew-er, so I used the All in a Row stamp that has been retired SU. You will want to gather some more inspiration from the other players - you can find their links HERE.

Despite all of the busyness, I am so blessed. This week at church, we had a special speaker come in. He is a new Pastor applying for a position in our church. He spoke from Jonah 1...the Lord led me to share this with you today...
Running Away from God
1-2 One day long ago, God's Word came to Jonah, Amittai's son: "Up on your feet and on your way to the big city of Nineveh! Preach to them. They're in a bad way and I can't ignore it any longer." 3 But Jonah got up and went the other direction to Tarshish, running away from God. He went down to the port of Joppa and found a ship headed for Tarshish. He paid the fare and went on board, joining those going to Tarshish—as far away from God as he could get.
After hearing Pastor Sam Jackson speak this week, I was challenged to ask myself and really think about what GOD is calling me in? Where or what have I been neglecting or running in the other direct from? My children have me so distracted right now, that I seem to be tending to the immediate needs and have a hard time thinking past what is beyond that. I am hoping this week to really have some treasured moments to really focus on where God has been calling me and where I may not be going in the directions HE wants me too. If you would like to listen to this message, I encourage you to go to www.graceinracine.com and download it to your computer or any other means of listening devices.

This card kit is jammed packed with supplies. This kit contains 12 die cut cards and envelopes. Many of the cards included in the kit are exclusive to CC&M. The kit is worth over $30 but we are offering it for $26.99.You will have everything you need to make 12 great cards. The only thing you will need to add is adhesive.
There is a great birthday stamp set from Doodlebug that is an add-on to the kit. View our gallery to see all of the great examples that can be made with this kit.
$26.99 for this complete kit.
For this Gatefold card I added a sentiment on the inside along with the stickers. The sentiment is from a stamp set available at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps called Birthday greetings.
Now with this card...I have to say I think I got a little carried away. LOL It was fun to create, but I made it a little too busy for my taste. Additions are SU Tempting Turquoise cardstockand the Rounded Tab Punch.
Out of all of the cards, this one was the most fun to create! This is an Acetate Gatefold card. I was so excited about it, that as I was showing my husband it and passing it to him to look at, I dropped it in the dogs water dish, so I had to use my heat tool to dry it, pull it apart to see what I can salvage. There is a tiny bit of warping on the inside cardstock. I couldn't get that off without destroying the acetate visual on the back of the card - so I left it in there... so bare with me as it is a tiny bit warped!
The top portion that says "Party Girl, You take the cake - slides off. Additions not included in the kit is the layers - SU Gable Green and Pink Passion Cardstock. I also Paper pierced the top postion of the outside layer.Out of this kit, this was the quickest card I created. Once I was on a roll there was no stopping me! Additions were Su Pink Passion, Green Galore Cardstock and the Celery RibbonOut of all of the cards...this one is my favorite! Do you know what makes it my favorite? The Black Cardstock. I used it for the layers -and a 1 1/2" circle punch for a layer behind the heart, Stardust Stickles was used on the HAPPY.
