Stampin' Sisters in Christ . . . hearts
Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. This week's hostess is our founding mother :) Kris (she's younger than I am) who selected this verse from Proverbs 3:3 "Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart." Her challenge is for you to make a heart stand out in your card or project.
Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights by Louby Lou and one randomly selected winner will receive three free images from that store. You can find more details as well as Kris' thoughts and the other creations by the design team members on our home page here.
I don't have one central heart really, but a string of three of them on the twine around my CAS card. I added the twine to illustrate the 'binding' portion of the verse Kris chose and also used the dog image for faithfulness. My dog is very faithful to me, he's lying at my feet now while I type up this post.
Unseen but ever more faithful than any of my pets or family is the Lord, His love and faithfulness is written on the tablet of my heart and my name is written in the Lamb's book of life for eternity. That thought gives me great joy, a joy only matched when another person who is lost turns to Christ and gets their name written in there as well.
For my card I used a simple dollar stamp I bought long ago at either Michael's or Hobby Lobby, I cannot remember. The dog is actually holding a bone, but I masked out the bone so he could be grasping the 'v' of the word love instead. For the letters I used an alphabet die recently released by Papertrey Ink; I can see myself using this die a lot. Thanks for looking and WE look forward to seeing your 'heart'felt creations in the gallery this week.
