Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 102 . . . music!



Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ and this week's hostess is one of our guest designers, the ultra talented Teresa Kline, who has selected this verse from Colossians 3:16 "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." Her challenge is to use music in some form on your creation, sheet music, music notes, instruments, or singing.

I know she has some great thoughts to share in her devotional on our home page and you don't want to miss the beautiful creations by the rest of the design team.

I am guessing that I will be the only one to have a card with a sheep playing the bagpipes. :) I bought a set of stamps a few years ago that played off of the 12 Days of Christmas theme and that sheep just tickles my funny bone. I used a sideways sketch for this card that involved cutting off a portion of the top layer to show a segment on the bottom layer, in this case the sentiment, from Waltzing Mouse . . .and do you want to know why???? Because I goofed up the top layer and had to cut a piece off. In this case even an extra embellishment wouldn't work. Lucky for me that's a legitimate card sketch.

We will be enjoying conversation, music and sermons as we drive on a long trek west to get my son to Moody Bible Institute in Spokane, Washington. I have preposted this and will not be visiting blogs or available until late August, early September, but look forward to coming back to see everyone's creations upon my return. Happy stamping and we hope you can join Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week for our challenge!

Peggysue, this bagpipe-playing sheep cracks me up!! SOOO very cEWEt!! heehee! Love the sentiment on it too, in fact after reading it (seeing it in the album a few days ago) it inspired me to try drawing my firt self-portrait for an art journal I've been thinking of starting.
