Stampin' Sisters In Christ Challenge

A blessed Sunday to you, my friends! This is the day that the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!

I have to apologize... I don't have a card for this week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ. Shame on me! But I beg forgiveness... I've been really swamped with projects around the house lately and... ta da... getting ready for my friend Debbie Pamment's arrival from Australia today!!! Yes, she is flying all the way around the world to visit me for about five days and then she goes on to Washington DC to join her husband, who's there on business, and they will travel back to Australia together after a week or so. Anyway, I'm so excited to meet her in person and have girl time all week long!!!

Of course, this has meant that I've had to make an effort to put some order to this house I share with four males (let's call it five since my eldest, although living on his own, is a frequent visitor) and four fur babies. The dust bunnies and cobwebs made it seem like Halloween was already here! I swear, I can't get ahead of those darn things. Let's just say that wood laminate floors are not a good thing to have if you hate dust. And don't get me started on the subject of clutter.

Even if I couldn't play this week, I hope you will. Our challenge hostess is Grace Nywening. You MUST pop over to the Stampin' Sisters in Christ blog to read Grace's devotional. Excellent!

Grace chose as the inspiration scripture John 4:10, 13-14 (NIV) Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water." Jesus answered, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

The challenge is to create a card or project that refers to water in some way, whether in image or sentiment.

Easy... fun...and we would love to have you join us!

Gotta run... as I write this post it's after 11:00 pm Pacific Saturday night. Paul and I have to get up at about 5:30 am to make sure we're at LAX to meet Debbie's flight on time. I'm taking a break from The Pink Elephant and Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenges, but I'll be back Thursday with new release previews for both Waltzingmouse Stamps and Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, and another peek at adorable Marci for La-La Land Crafts!

Happy Labor/Labour Day to my US and Canadian friends!
