Introducing the NEW Mustard Seed Faith Challenge

Sunday Blessings to you, my friends!

I'm excited about today!
Today I get to introduce you to a brand new challenge blog. 
You may have noticed the word "Faith" in the title.
Those of us on the Design Team...did I mention I'm on the Design Team? ;o)
Anyways...those of us on the Design Team all have a strong love for...and faith in...Jesus Christ. 
We are really looking forward to sharing that love with you,
as well as sharing our crafty projects.

We have a key Scripture verse that's found in Matthew 17:20:

He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.”

Have you ever seen a mustard seed? It is TINY!
That tiny seed grows into a big plant. 
So guess what? It's not the quantity of your's the quality of your faith that matters.
I read that somewhere, and it's stuck with me.
Just know that with God nothing is impossible! :o)

* * * * * what IS the challenge, you ask?
It's an easy one!
Just make something...anything...and use YELLOW.
That's it! 

* * * * *
Here's the card I made:

I tool and ink distressed all the edges.
Then I did some simple layering.

I layered some ovals and then added the "Faith".
I also added the wildflower die-cut to depict a growth in faith.
That tiny mustard seed grows into a big plant!

Finally, I added a loopy twine bow and some pretty yellow sequins.

Materials Used:
Papers: Crate Paper - Random;
Dies: Tutti Designs - Faith Word Set, Stitched Nesting Ovals, 
Tim Holtz - Wild Flowers Thinlits;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Twine: MME - Follow Your Heart
Bling: Sequins - My Stash.

* * * * * 
So head on over to the

There you can meet the rest of the Design Team
and see what they've created for the challenge this week. 

Then check out the simple rules, make something,
and link it up!

I can't wait to see what you make! :o)
