SSIC Timely

Hello everyone - thank you so much for your lovely comments on my Altered Art Tutorial, I am glad so many of you loved the frame - and how easy is it!??!  I have been happily stamping away and creating some cards that you will get to see in a few weeks....but in the meantime I have created this card for a couple of challenges, both of them important to me - the first being the Twisted Sister Challenge, as we are taking turns to host it and this week is my week, so I thought I had better be on time!!!  I have challenged everyone to use distressing and lace - no surprises there is there!

The second challenge is the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge where this week the scripture is

Esther 4:14 “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this'

Laurie has challenged us to make a card or project using a time piece or in some way denoting time or the passage of time - this was not hard for me - I knew straight away I wanted to use my Nestibilities Watch along with the Layers of Color art stamp set Regal Wings. 

 I have stamped the wings and corwn with Tim Holtz Distressing Ink in Walnut Stain and coloured them with  SU Chalks, using a Blender Pen.  Nail Bling has been added to the crown....I love the size of Nail Bling, it doesn't shout 'look at me, look at me,' but adds that needed touch. 

Layers of Color have a special offer , exclusively for those those who belong to their Group on SNR - you can get a discount on their stamps - they are also offering free digis - you can check it out here!  What are you waiting for  - come on over and join us, we are goign tio have a lot happening over the next few months and would love YOU to be part of it!
The scripture is from the Close to My Heart set 'Make it Count' - this has been distressed and had lace added to the lower edge and Nail Bling added either side of the book of the Bible.

I love this scripture - what a truth, things certainly go in seasons, not just in the world around us but in our lives as well.  Some seasons are easier than others to go through, but one thing we can have confidence of it that every season will come to an end.  I have learned that every season has it's purpose too, we cannot rush them through but allow that which needs to be accomplished to be done, properly and look forward to the beauty and wonders of the next....the one thing that is sure is that it is all in HIS time, He makes all things beautiful in His Time - what a peace there is in knowing that!
