Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge 148...sparkle!

Happy Sunday stampers! It is time for another challenge from Stampin' Sisters in Christ, where all of our challenges are based on scripture! Today's hostess is Miesje! and she has selected this verse from Matthew 5: 13 - "You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot." Her challenge is to add sparkle to your creation. 

Our sponsor this week is a new company to me, The Stamps of Life. One randomly selected participant in our challenge this week will win a free set of the winner's choice up to $12.95 in value, so we welcome Stamps of Life and look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!

I chose this little duck playing in the water partly because he just looks so happy and partly to encourage it to rain outside. I know many parts of the country desperately need rain and we are no exception. I also thought he lent himself to a little sparkle, which I added with a glittered frame around the image and some softer shimmer in the twinkling H20s that color the water. 

I am looking forward to reading Miesje's thoughts on today's chosen verse. I am also glad to be back, I haven't stamped in quite a few weeks. We've had some health issues in the family and I still haven't quite caught up to life yet. 

The sketch I used came from Tuesday Morning Sketches from last Tuesday and the bonus challenge to use an image or embellishment with wings. 

We hope you can find time to join us this week at Stampin' Sisters in Christ. Thanks so much for looking.

We need a little splish splash kind of weather here in the drought ravaged mid-west! What ducky darlingness you have going on here. Love the polka dots...and yes, I see that glittery goodness. Glad you are having time to regain some crafting mojo! And rejoicing things are better. Praying for lots of health progress this week!

sigh I understand issues. We have VBS next week and I think the devil is throwing everything he has in his arsenal at us this week to discourage us. Thanks for the smile your sweet little duckie brought to me and thanks for the lovely comment you left on my blog this week. Have a blessed day! Hugs!
