It is time for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge - last weeks Black and white cards were gorgeous - it is always a pleasure visiting your Blogs. This weeks devotional and challenge come from Peggysue.
Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds
Peggysue has challenged us to use any type of creature from tiny (like an ant or bug) to a very large creature (whale, elephant) on your card or project.
I don't 'do' whimsical too often but how could I resist this darling little peacock from our sponsor this week - Doodle Pantry. For something different (for me) I have coloured with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol - I love the shades of blue that they have. After colouring I cut him out and popped him up onto the Tim Holtz Birdcage Die, that has been embossed with the Provocraft Embossing Folder.
That divine tail was 'screaming' for some sparkle so I just had to oblige and add some 3D Kindy Glitz - the texture is great, especially when I am so tactile.
The green DP is actually packaging from some Prima flowers I won in a gorgeous candy some time ago - I love to recycle and it is not hard with something as lovely as this. Pleated DP and Seam Binding finish the card off perfectly.
You can see all of the dimension and details in this photo.
Each of the design team members has a wonderful praise song linked in their blog post, or song to recommend that will get your heart moving closer to the Lord in worship. I have chosen the song
Heart of Worship by Matt Redman - I pray the words of this song speak to your heart and move you to worship God- not with all those things that would weigh us down as we endeavour to come into His presence, but leaving those things - simply coming and bringing just that - a heart of worship!
Thank you to this weeks sponsor
