Stamin' Sisters in Christ challenge 111. . . seeing double


Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ, where all of the challenges are inspired by scripture. Our lovely hostess this week is Miesje, who selected this verse from Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me all who labor and are burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Her challenge is called 'sharing." Use two of anything you have on your creation; for example, use two dps, two flowers, two stamps . . . whatever you use must be doubled.
Our sponsor this week is Designed2Delight@blogspot.com and one randomly selected winner will receive a $10 gift card to her store.

I know that Miesje has had several burdens on her shoulders lately so I am going to add nothing but direct you to her devotional on the home page found here.

This image caught my eye when I opened the bottom drawer of my loose, individual wooden stamps. I have a couple small Winnie stamps and hardly use them, but since this verse is about our partnership with the Lord when times get tough and Miesje's challenge is about doubles or twos, I thought the image of two friends might suit. They are taking a walk in the hundred acre forest, represented by the wood grain impression plate and the Fall colors on the strips of DP.

We hope you find the time this week to play along. Thanks for looking.

I love it! I love the way they are holding hands in that image - so wonderfully comforting to know that none of us ever have to walk alone. I love the simple look to the card - makes the image even more meaningful. Have a great week!
