SSiC Challenge #142 - Isaiah 40:26

Good morning, Friends! Today, this beautiful Sunday, begins our new challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ!
The delightful hostess for this week is Diane and she has chosen the theme of "any elements of heaven"...which could include angels, music, clouds, sun, stars, blue, glitter, etc. The Bible verse that inspired her was Isaiah 40:26 which says:

“Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.”

Our sponsor this week is Market Street Stamps who is offering a $20 voucher to their store to one random winner just for playing along in our challenge! I have used one of their background stamps to make my card. It is called "Grungy Border". I thought it made a great "sky" background. (so sorry Kris, I forgot to tell you I was using a MS stamp! Its been an extremely busy week!)


The verse I used on my card is what I so often think ("hear" God saying to me) when I look up at the stars in the sky on a very dark night and remember just how small I am and how powerful and magnificent my God is. And I'm so glad He is in control and not me!
Please stop by my "sisters" blogs too to see all of their amazing cards and creations...and see how they interpreted this challenge. You can find them all on my side bar to the right. Enjoy!
Well, I hope you all have a very blessed Sunday! I'm off to church to worship this amazing God!
