Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 30 - Peaceful Sleeping Baby
Happy Sunday stampers! This week's challenge hostess at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is Helen P (for peace!), who also seems to like to change her name depending on the week. :) This week's inspiration verse is Psalm 29:11 "The Lord will give strength unto his people; the Lord will bless his people with peace." Helen's challenge is to make a card/lo/project using a peaceful image or a verse about peace. You can check out the rest of the amazing creations by the Design Team here. Whiff of Joy is our sponsor this week, one randomly chosen lucky winner will receive the stamp shown on our home page, I believe it is Willow reading a story. A very peaceful image.
I chose an image I've used before from Mo's Digital, that just seems so peaceful to me, you look at it and feel rested.
I made this baby card for a wonderfully talented woman who blesses us occasionally with her singing at our church, when she isn't traveling to perform. Recently she and her husband had a little baby boy, so although I do not know her personally, I am going to send this to the family to thank her for sharing her talents with us on Sundays. I was listening to one of her CDs while I worked. :)
She is from Trinidad-Tobago but her husband is not, so I tried my best to make a good color representation of their lovely baby. I need more practice at working darker skin tones, if anyone has any good tips for prisma colors that will help, I sure would appreciate it. I used a combination of three colors, with the darkest shade dark umber, although I need to have gone a few shades darker, just didn't know how.
A baby in its mother's arms (unless its hungry!) is at peace . . . and when we rest in our Father's arms we can experience that peace too, the type that 'passes all understanding." We have such a good God who wants only the best for us, including peace instead of worry, restful instead of restless minds. Pray and cast your cares upon Him so you can feel that peace and joy this week.
I just learned how to make a tent card this past week, isn't it a fun format? The little row of ducks and the corner stamp are from a Crafty Secrets set. Papers are Paper Studio I bought at Hobby Lobby layered on Spring Rain and Soft Stone from PTI, little strip of white velvet ribbon along the side and Martha Stewart lace border punch. Thanks for looking.
