SSIC LOC Under His Wing

Welcome to the first Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge for 2011 - It is a pleasure to have our dear Sistah Chris bringing this weeks Scripture:

"May the LORD repay you for what you have done. May you be richly rewarded by the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge." Ruth 2:

Chris is challenging us to use wings on our card or project

and Nature Walk art stamp set to create a page for my Vintage Album

This gorgeous lace is handmade by my dear friend Maxine (aka Kiwime)Thank you Maxine - it is just divine and saved for special projects!

This flower is also from the Nature Walk art stamp set.  I stamped it onto DP and added highlights with SU Chalks and a Gold Glitter Pen!  The centre of the flower is from a Christmas Ornament - I love recycling!

This project is for the following challenges:
Our Daily Bread Designs - Something Old, Something New - Old DP, new punch
Stampin'B - Something Old, Something New - Old DP , new punch
Crafty Emma - All Ctreatures Great and Small

  13. Linda, this is gorgeous. I am such a bird lover and that caught my eye immediately, but you've also used so many more wonderful things. How special to have handmade lace from a friend. Your Chrismtas ornament in the flower is a super way to recycle and make something beautiful at the same time.
