Stampin' Sisters in Christ Guest Designer!!


Good morning!! I am excited to tell you I've been  invited to be a guest for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge blog for the next few weeks! Since this is one of my favorite groups I love to visit each Sunday , I am so honored to be stampin' along with this wonderful group of gals!! The other wonderfully talented guest for the next six weeks along with myself is Teresa Kline of Paperie Blooms!
So this week, the scripture and devotional were chosen by my friend, Peggysue.

Psalm 148:7-10
Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds..."
The challenge issued was use any type of creature from tiny (like an ant or bug) to a  very LARGE creature (like a whale or elephant) on your card or project.
The sponsor this week is a gift certificate to Doodle Pantry!!
Peggysue had asked us to share a praise song for this challenge. The song that was going through my head as I created my card was "All Creatures of our God and King" by the David Crowder band. I was able to find an inspirational video with music on Youtube here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cObXwn-EgGY&feature=related
My card was created with this tiny hummingbird in mind...I love watching hummingbirds from our bird feeder up in the mountains!! The last time I was there, I actually spied one of the tiny hummers perched up in a large pine branch! I had never seen them still, and I was surprised at how tiny these are! My stamp is Flourishes "Humming Along" along with SU! designer papers in soft subtles, PTI white, Webster's sparklers, white satin ribbon, white crochet ribbon, and mosaic tiles.
So hope you can visit the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog and play along with this fun challenge. You may just be a winner of a darling Doodle Pantry gift certificate...but you are sure to be uplifted in spirit and may find a new song in your heart!

  1. We are so pleased to have you join us for August, yay! And the coloring on this is delightful, what beautiful flowers you've created. I saw a hummingbird just this week near some hosta blooms and never knew they liked them. Wishing you a blessed week!

  3. Hi Traci! Oh your card is just heavenly! I love the beauty of the flowers and this precious little hummingbird! I also adore the song you chose! I still love the words to some of the hymns we seldom hear any more yet they are so full of praise and truth! Thanks so much for guest designing for SSIC these next weeks as some of us have to be away! I know you will be rocking the challenges and God will richly use you!
    hugs,
    Grace

This challenge was particularly meaningful and I enjoyed listening to all the praise and worship music while creating for it. Thanks for your inspirations!

    I've been lifting you in prayer consistently. I was so touched by your email, and have faithfully gone to the throne room on your behalf. Know I care, sweet friend!
