Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 137. . . green

Happy Sunday stampers! I still haven't gotten used to the new blogger format so its an adventure each time I post, to see if it will all turn out all right! It is time for a new challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ and this week's hostess is MariLynn who has selected this verse: [Those who trust in the Lord] shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17:8 for her challenge which is to "Use our green thumbs... either use green on a card/project or use an image of something planted." Our sponsor this week is DRS Designs which generously gave each team member who requested it a lovely rubber stamp. I used the cattails in the flowing water for my card, it was a lot of fun to color! They are offering a $10 gift card to one randomly selected winner from this week's challenge. I look forward to reading MariLynn's thoughtful words on her chosen verse. You can read her thoughts and see the rest of the creations by the design team on our home page here. And more exciting news, this week we will announce who will be joining our design team as new sistahs! Not that we aren't all sisters in Christ who believe in His saving grace! Wishing you a blessed week!

this is very pretty. What a gorgeous image and it is colored beautifully! I love that verse because it reminds me that the droughts will come, heat and hard times will still happen but we have a way of withstanding those things.

Peggysue, your card is fantastic. Such pretty combinations of papers/colors. Lots of fun little touches too...dots on the scallops, buttons. Love it all. Praying blessings and Christ's refreshment into your life this week.
