Design Team Delights for Challenge #21

It is time to share our favourite entries for Challenge #21.  As always, in each challenge you, the readers, get to voice your opinion by voting for your favourite and so it is only fitting that my Design Team get to do so as well.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to join along our Path during the month of December for Challenge #21.  While it is always a difficult decision, most team member managed to find a particular entry that really caught their attention.  Take a look...
Teresa--chosen by Vicky...

Vicky had this to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Tickled Expressions (#2) because I really love how she shared how her faith evolved through the time:"
"When I was 15, I had a question that I never spoke out loud to anyone. It was actually more of an accusation than a question. "If God really loved the world so much, why didn't he come himself instead of sending his poor son?" When I was 18, my question was answered, though I had never said it out loud to anyone. One day brother spontaneously showed me John chapter one in the bible. "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us." Jesus was God in the flesh. God actually did come himself; I had just never understood that."

Jo Ann--chosen by Pat...

This is what Pat had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Jo Ann (#9). Her card is rich in color and layers and just the right amount of sparkle.  Her layouts work perfectly, and she sewed the edges of her layers as well (something that I can't do)."

 Stephanie--chosen by Monica...

Here is what Monica had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Stephanie (#3). I loved the scripture and overall make of the card."

Teresa--chosen by Penny...

Penny said this:
"My DT Delight choice is Tickell Expressions (#15).  Not only is this a beautiful mixed-media piece, but the intent behind it is also beautiful. It was created with love and meaning for the recipients."

Edwina --chosen by Suze... 

Here is what Suze had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Edwina Brown.  I love the strong faith image on the top part of the easel card. The lower part of the easel focuses on the sentiment with the embellishing on either side. A beautifully balanced creation."

Jo Ann--chosen by Desíre...

Here is what Desíre had to say:
"My DT Delight choice is Jo Ann (#5).  It is just such a cheerful creation, beautifully designed and so colourful. The message in the heart is also a lovely touch."

Stephanie--chosen by Lisa (that's me)...

My choice this time around is Stephanie (#13).  While her card is adorable, my choice is more based on what she had to say.
"This time of year, we hear a lot of talk about faith and beliefs.  Why don't we hear consistent talk about the same topics all year long?  After all, what we believe and our faith in the Lord shouldn't be like a shirt we put on and take off at our convenience."
Unfortunately, as Stephanie stated, it is too bad that many people only bring out their faith on special occasions. Whether you are talking about faith in general, or religious faith, it is something that should never be put away like the good dishes and silver.  Faith should be experienced and shine through us every single day.
