SSIC Two Cups

What a busy week it has been in Blogville - time has just flown by - Sunday is here already and with Sunday comes the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge.  This week is hosted by dear Chris aka Glowbug, who has chosen the following scripture:

 'My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip, he who watches over you will not slumber;  indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.'
  Psalm 121:2-4

Chris has set us the challenge of creating a card or project with a tea or coffee cup or pot - this can be the designer paper, the image, or embellishment

I have recycled my image from an old birthday card, it was too cute not to reuse - I am going to give it to the friend that gave me the original card - do you think she will notice?! (LOL!)   I have added a Tim Holtz Flourish

and some flowers and pearls to 'purty' it up of course there is inking and sponging - it is a rare day I don't do either of those on my cards!

This card is for the following challenges:
Craft Us Crazy - Use your favourite embellishment (Tim Holtz Die) and/or something new ( the rose)
Crafty Purple Frog - Monochromatic
Stampin' B's - TGIF - anything starting with 'F' - flower
Cute Card Thursday - Distressing
One Stop Craft Shop - Ice Cream Colours or Image
Stamp Scrap and Doodle - Use Old Supplies
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - Use Dies
Fairy Fun Fridays - For the Girls
Stamp Something - Anything Goes

God never sleeps nor slumbers - can you imagine that!?  God is always busy, even now He is busy, but the Word tells us that God does rest - for 6 days He created but on the seventh He rested. We sleep because our bodies grow weary - I look forward to the day we too will not need to sleep, our bodies will not grow weary, no aches and pains - I am looking forward to the day I check into my mansion and get my sleeping bag unrolled!!  Infact, I have even ordered my Heavenly Body and I will tell you this - it is DIVINE!  LOL!

God is spirit and He does not sleep nor slumber - He is always watching over us.  We read in scripture that the eyes of Lord search all around the world (Zec 4:10) His eyes watch over those who do right and His ears are open to their prayers (1 Peter 3:12) 

I am so grateful for God who is mindful of me, always watching and hearing my prayers!

  1. What a great tea card Linda! I love that you recycled!!! It's perfect! I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful day with the Lord and perhaps a cuppa while you've been basking in His presence!

  2. What a fun and cheerful card Linda!! I just love your use of recycling, the image and the sentiment. How perfect!! I enjoyed reading your take on the verse and I too look forward to not being weary and needing sleep. Have a great day!!

  7. Linda this is wonderful just love the image and the flourish is just so lush!!! Chanelle xxx

  8. Linda, what a beautiful job of recycling! And I'm guessing you've made this look so different from the original card that your friend will not notice! And I must say, I think it's a lovely picture of how God can 'recycle' us to be fit for His use when it may seem that we are all used up.

  9. Once again a beautiful card and beautiful thoughts to go with it - my new body will definitely have perfect eyes!!
