Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 79 . . . flowers
Happy Sunday stampers! Its time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ. This week's hostess is the talented Chris, who selected this verse from Isaiah 40:7, "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth; but the word of our God shall stand forever." For her challenge you must use a stamped flower on your card, DP and paper flowers don't count.
In case you haven't checked the main blog, we are welcoming three new design team members. Actually one is a returning founding member, Kristine, and we are so excited to have her back!!! And MariLynn will be joining us as well as Sabrina. You can find the news and see everyone's creations on the home page right here.
I look forward to reading Chris' thoughts on her chosen verse and what a treat to see the gallery blooming with flowers of all types! I am looking forward also to Spring, when it finally comes to our area of the country, and the flowers that will bloom. We are surrounded by a countryside filled with apple and cherry orchards and I hear the trees in late Spring are a spectacular sight. But as surely as we still are experiencing winter, season will follow upon season and after the blossoms fade, fruit appears and is harvested, we will plunge into winter again.
The word of the Lord however can always bloom in our hearts. This verse implies that all of life on this earth is temporary, but not God nor His word. Hoping you find time to bask in His word this week. Thanks for looking, please play along if you can. This week's sponsor is Clear Dollar Stamps and one randomly selected winner will receive a $15 gift card to use in their online store.
