Happy Sunday - I hope yours is wonderful, they certainly go by quickly.  It is time for this weeks Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge and this week it is hosted by the lovely MariLynn who has chosen this well known scripture from Ecclesiastes

 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens...
Ecclesiastes 3:1

MariLynns challenge to us this week is to make a card that shows the passing of time. A clock ( for hours) a sun (for days) a calendar for (years) etc
I have used a Spellbinders Die for my clock - it has been sponged with Distressing Ink and popped up with foam tape.  The Wings and the Crown are from the  Layers of Color Regal Wings art stamp set.

and the sentiment from Close to My Heart
