Happy Sunday & New Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge!

Good morning friends! Today is a super special day for me because it's my first challenge on the Stampin Sisters in Christ Design Team Spring/Summer 2012! This group of ladies is amazing and I'm so blessed to have been chosen to be a part of their team!
I'm so excited to share with you my first creation on the DT!
Our hostess this week is Miesje and the verse she chose is 1 John 2:4-6 "Whoever says, 'I know him', but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the trugh is not in him. But whoever keeps his word, the love of God is truly perfected in him." She has a wonderful devotion on the SSiC blog, so jump on over there to hear what the Lord has to say through her.
Miesje challened us to create a card or project that uses something real or natural on it - such as twine, burlap, shell, sand, sand, sand, or anything natural. I bet you can't guess what I chose to use, can ya? lol Yep, that's real sand on my creation! It's straight from the Bahamas! Yes, really. We went there on a cruise for our honeymoon and I fell in love with the ocean! I've never been the same since then! I think the ocean and everything about it is God's most beautiful creation!


Sponsoring the SSiC this week is Our Daily Bread Designs. Please be sure to stop by their shop and check out all their wonderful stamps and accessories!
Have a wonderfully blessed Sunday!

OH you lucky lucky girl!! Never been on a fabulous vacation like that--not even for our honeymoon. We do however go to the Oregon coast which is where I picked up the shells on my creation. Great minds think alike, you and me, LOL! *Ü* So good to have you back with us, my "Stoll Sistah"!! Hugs, kris
