Happy Sunday, fellow stampers/scrappers!
We have a new challenge again today at Stampin' Sisters in Christ!
The challenge: Use punches, dies, or shapes of any kind.
Our Hostess: Diane
"Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter;
we are all the work of your hand."
Prize: a grab bag of stamps (wow!) from
Generous Sponsor: Anonymous
My thoughts: In this verse are 2 very comforting ideas. First, that God IS our loving Father and always wants and does what is best for us. Second, He is our Creator...He had a perfect plan for each of us when He created us. He does not make mistakes but has formed each of us differently, to glorify Him in a way that no one else can. This is yet an on-going process...the clay is still pliable and in the process of being shaped to perfection. But we aren't quite there yet, are we! Does God make useless, ugly things? Nope, I don't think so! His creations are beautiful and full of purpose. So comforting! To God be the glory!
For my card I used 2 dies and 1 punch. I was a "bit" confused about our sponsor this week! I looked ahead in the schedule too far and thought the sponsor was A Day for Daisies but that won't be for a month yet! So the adorable digital image is from them! I got it several weeks ago and was SO looking forward to using it, but now that I did I'm not too satisfied with my card. Still love the image but the sentiment stamp I had to go with it "perfectly" wasn't so perfect. It is an unbranded (i.e. CHEAP) stamp and the spacing of the lines of words was awful so I cut them all apart and overlapped them which of course looks rather tacky. You can't see that in my photo, fortunately! This stamp will definitely find a new home!
Here's my list of ingrdients:
Spellbinders dies: Labels 15, Beaded Ovals
Border Punch: Doily Lace by Martha Stewart
Digital image: A Day for Daisies
colored with colored pencils
Cardstock, ribbon, pearls...all from my stash
I hope you join our challenge this week! For more inspiration check out the blogs of my DT sisters, all listed on my sidebar, or go to SSiC!
