SSCC God's Creatures Great & Small


Happy Sunday everyone!  Today we have a great devotional and challenge by Peggysue at Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenges.  I’m looking forward to worship time this morning as it’s been a couple weeks since we’ve gone to church with vacation and all.  And since we have several of our DT taking a li’l break, we are welcoming 2 Guest Designers for the next month:  Traci Major and Theresa Kline… Welcome ladies!! 

Sponsor:
 Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry and Laurie has provided some awesome digis to our design team, so be sure to hop on over to the SSCC blog and check out what our DT created... thanks again Laurie!! 

Scripture:
Peggysue picked this verse to share: Psalm 148:7-10 7 "Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, 8 lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, 9 you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, 10 wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds." 

Challenge:
Make a card using any type of creature from tiny (like an ant or bug) to a very large creature (whale, elephant) on your card or project.
What a fun card challenge!  I’m sure you all have some animal stamps or digis right?  If not, Doodle Pantry has LOTS of Freebies HERE (although you can use any vendor you’d like for our challenge!) 

Recently my family and I spent a week at the beach and it was wonderful!  It's been several years since we've been -- they of course love to build sandcastles, find shells and play in the water.  I enjoy walking the beach and several mornings I took my lawn chairs and devotional book early in the morning before anyone else was up.  Loved spending my "quiet time" with the roar of the ocean and the cool breeze... and even the seagulls flying.  The vastness of the ocean always helps puts things into perspective for me.  And this verse today made me think... even the OCEAN praises God!  The mountains, the birds... the rocks praise Him and He indeed is worthy of our praise!!  Our design team have shared some of our favorite praise & worship songs with you...

Here is one of my new faves,  “Happy Day  (*this video is not actually shown in church… just thought it was super cute in reference to the song… so I encourage you to listen to the lyrics, hard as it may be --those penguins are too cute!)



MY CARD:
I decided to make a baby card for my niece who just had a baby boy a couple weeks ago, using Doodle Pantry’s Saddle Up (large horse) and Baby Horse and colored with Copics.  I fell in love with Katlyn's horse card so I kinda CASEd her idea of using this larger horse with the baby.  *Ü*

We'd love for you to join our challenge!  One player will win $10 worth of digis to the Doodle Pantry store!!
