Happy Thursday, everyone!! It's time again for a new Bible Verse Thursday Challenge over at Christian Paper Crafts AND a brand new Stamping In Time: On Assignment Challenge over at the Our Daily Bread designs blog! You know I can't resist challenge combos, so I have combined these two once again!
Here are the deets for the Bible Verse Thursday Challenge:
"It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him." Lamentations 3:22-24
This week's Bible Verse Thursday Challenge theme is "Measure Up"! While creating your card, layout, altered item, or gift, think of different ways that we use "measurements"...we measure time (day, night, calendars, clocks, etc.), we measure ingredients while cooking, we measure our material when sewing, etc. Perhaps you could use a scripture which speaks of measurements...."my cup runneth over", or "the Lord is my portion", etc. We can't wait to see your take on the challenge! I have also incorporated last week's Wednesday Case Artist challenge...I couldn't pass up the opportunity to case one of sweet Lynn Ray's beautiful cards.....I chose this gorgeous card to re-create. Also, this week's Shining the Light Challenge at ODBD is all about new life/flowers/easter, etc......couldn't resist but incorporate it too!!!
