Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge 74 . . . still waters


Happy Sunday stampers! Its time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ! This week's hostess is the lucky Lisa (she's going to CHA in California!) and she selected Psalm 23 for her inspiration. . . he makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. And her challenge is to make a card or project that uses the colors blue (still waters) and green (green pastures). You can read her devotional on the main blog here as well as see the fabulous projects by the rest of the design team. I saw them in the gallery previous to posting and it is a soothing sensation to see them all in one place!

Our sponsor this week is Taylored Expressions. I had the good fortune to attend CHA Chicago last summer and got this stamp at the Taylored Expressions booth. Little did I know then just how well it would fit today's challenge but I believe God is in control of everything, even details as small as this one, buying a stamp months ago that would fit a challenge Lisa selected just week's ago, coinciding with the week that Taylored Expressions is our sponsor! That just makes me smile.

Psalm 23 is so comforting. I would urge you to take some time this week, find a quiet corner and read Psalm 23 and really let the words soak into your soul. There isn't anything I could say to add to the beauty of the words in that psalm.

Thanks for looking. Have a great day and hope you can play along with us this week!

Stamps: Taylored Expressions, MFP for sentiment
Paper: Bordering Blue, white, Cool Carribbean, random DP

Great take on the challenge. Very sweet card. I love Taylored Expressions too.

Wanted to thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. There's more explanation there, but I've decided to keep my blog going for the time being. God is reshaping a ton of things, and bringing other changes so I can focus on ministry, but I think I can also use the blog to bring God glory too. There will be other online things I'll give up...like the blogging groups, but I hope to stay connected to you here and through Stampin' Sisters in Christ. I loved doing the challenge and want to focus more on that type of thing. Anyway...just wanted to thank you and hope to see you around.
