Good morning friends!! I know my card-making has been pretty sparse this summer, but I’m back with a card today … and for a very sweet new challenge at Stampin’ Sisters in Christ Challenges!
Our sponsor this week is Denami Designs
who is offering one random winner a $30 GC to their store!! You could also be one of 3 selected Shining Stars to be featured on our blog. ☺
Our challenge hostess this week is Sandie who shares this verse:
...as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby, if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is gracious. ~I Peter 2:2&3
“O Taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalm 34:8) and this one says “you have tasted that the Lord is gracious.” He certainly IS good and gracious and so much more!! But how do we know that unless we know Him? The more we dig in to His Word, the better we know Him & the more nourishment we receive so we can grow and mature spiritually. How many times do we allow ourselves to get so busy or chose to put off reading the Bible to do something less important? A baby doesn’t go a few days before he is hungry. And we shouldn’t either. These last couple of weeks I’ve really been longing for our beach vacation because my devotional time on the beach is like nothing else. There’s something spiritual about being out in nature with the ocean… hearing the rolling waves… appreciating God’s creation… and just having all the time in the world to “drink the milk of His Word.” But we are not promised tomorrow. We (I) should make the most of each and every day!!
Sandie’s Challenge for us this week:
Something "Baby" … OR All (only) pastels
I have a very exciting announcement about these digi stamps and paper that I’ve used on this card today. A very dear sister in Christ, Diane is opening her new digi store later this week called … Daydream Designs, LLC!! Also, she’s asked me to be her “Digital Colorist & Paper Illustrator” and I’m totally over-the-moon & feel so blessed to be able to use my talents/skills in this area to help her & her new business ☺ I’ve seen quite a few of her sets so far and am in love – I know you will be too! You won’t want to miss the Grand Opening this Friday, 8/10 as there will be some freebies, tutorials, card samples and more!! A great way to stay in the know on her new store is to follow her blog, Diane’s Designs.
For my card I’ve used the pre-colored Mama & Baby trio from the “Nest to Sky” set and layered them onto this cloud paper I made yesterday (which will be available in a paper combo pack soon!) The sentiment is from a separate set called “Hope Soars Sentiments” which coordinates with another super cute set! Hope you’ll mark your calendars and plan to attend the Grand Opening on
Now it’s time to hop on over to our challenge blog and read a wonderful devotional by Sandie,
if you haven’t been there yet and see the beautiful creations by the DT! :)
